11-12:30pm - Lightnin' Willie
Biggest Little Band On Earth...we enjoyed playing last year will again this year.
Lightnin' Willie and established guitar player/songwriter touring the U.S. and Europe in support of his new 2017 album: NO BLACK NO WHITE JUST BLUES produced by the multi award winning producer Pete Anderson. Looking for exciting Blues/Americana look no further as this band sits so deep in the pocket their audiences cannot not dance. What they don't know about putting on a good show isn't worth knowing.
1- 2:30pm - goCcal
goCcal is a band from Los Angeles, California. Formed by late 2012, the band consists of 6 members.
When the band first formed the idea was just to get together and play some old ska and reggae covers but
soon came the original songs. Soon after a few jam nights the guys realized the potential of the group.
They decided to do some gigs and the response was exrtemely positive. Next they thought that it would
be a great idea to put a CD of the original songs together to get more gigs and grow a following. With a
batch of CD's out to SoCal colleges, the CD was quickly added to some public radio stations and air
play is happening.
goCcal is Johnny Love (Vocals, Sax), Corey Naughton (Vocals, Guitar), James Hopkins (Bass), Chris
Taylor (Vocals, Drums), Mavis Senescu (Keys), and Danny Rivera (Percussion). The guys have all known
eachother for many years, growing up together, playing in other groups together and working together.
All of the members of goCcal have had many years of experience playing in bands locally and touring.
The wide variety of influences in the band has led to a diverse an unique sound of reggae, ska, rock, rap,
funk, soul, blues and country.

8am-9:30am - SonicBoom
Mix one talented British guitarist named Jo 'Dog' Almeida (Dogs D’Amour) with one eccentric frontman, Paul Mars Black (L.A. Guns, Black Cherry). Add generous dashes of blues, pop, and roots rock and roll and bake until finished. The result? A recipe for success… the band Jo & Paul's Sonic Boom, which will please the tastes of even the most discerning fan. The EP Out of the Blues released in the late 90’s and Sundown Yellow Moon in 2000, were printed in limited editions but received rave reviews from those lucky enough to get their hands on a copy. Wistful lyrics combined with feel good melodies created a vibe that had you singing along, even after the music had ended.
After a break to complete solo projects, the guys recently reconvened to get their groove on again. Tasty new concoctions will be set in concrete in the near future. Meanwhile, fans will be treated to two new singles later this month. Keep your ears open for the release of Tree for Shade and Everybody Rains on My Parade and your eyes peeled for accompanying videos. (Hey these guys are a treat for the eyes as well.)
10am-11:30pm - PaulMars Black
Paul Mars Black is one of those rare musicians whose very life creates and is created by the music in the world around him. Known for legendary shows, whether in front of 50,000 fans on Busan Beach, Korea or 500 people in a nightclub in Buenos Aires, Argentina, he fills the stage with fun, energy and enthusiasm.
