Happy Holidays!

Time to Celebrate the Holidays!

Welcome to the beautiful month of December in Big Bear 🙂 With the time of year comes constant festivities in our town! The ski resorts are open, the bars are ready, events and activities all week long, and Santa is here! If you want some world class entertainment, the place to be is The Cave. They have national acts every weekend in a beautifully crafted concert hall. This weekend is Logan Mize on Friday, and Jonny Lang on Saturday! The town of Big Bear has all types of events going on all week long. Check out our schedule here!

Logan Mize | Keeland Donovan

Fri, Dec 7th | 6:30pm | $15 | Full Bar | All Ages

Logan Mize is an accomplished country singer/songwriter from Clearwater, Kansas, who has deep musical roots in his family tree. His great uncle was Billy Mize, largely known for crafting and evolving the legendary Bakersfield sound, which included musical pioneers Merle Haggard and Buck Owens.  In 2009, his first self-titled album was released and shortly thereafter, in 2010, Logan signed a publishing deal with Big Yellow Dog Music. In 2012, his second album “Nobody in Nashville” was released, which peaked at #49 on the US Country chart. Over the next five years Logan hit the road and toured the US and UK, attracting and winning over new fans at every stop along the way.

Jonny Lang

Sat, Dec 8th| 6:30pm | $58 | Full Bar | All Ages |

  Easier to believe when you learn he released his first platinum record at 15—an age when many young people are just beginning to play music. Lie to Me revealed a talent that transcended the crop of blues prodigies floating around in the late Nineties. No flashy re-hasher of classic blues licks, even at that early age Lang was a full-blown artist with a style of his own. Also, setting Lang apart from the wunderkind crowd was a 15-year-old voice that sounded like a weathered soul shouter. Actual life experience was yet to come, and has been subsequently chronicled in a series of five uniformly excellent recordings. “I got married, had kids, and that arc has been recorded on albums along the way,” says Lang. “There is a lot of personal history in there, and also some things that relate to world events.” Grab your tickets HERE!

Get Ready for December in Big Bear!

It’s Almost December!

The resorts are open and the mountain is ready for another beautiful December! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had an amazing time with the tree lighting ceremony, Warren Miller’s film premiere and Johnny Cash tribute at The Cave, and the Big bear Turkey Trot! Now that we only have one more week in November, we are celebrating the end of another amazing month this weekend and the beginning  of December! Los Lonely Boys will be performing at The Cave this Friday Nov 30th! Fleetwood Mac and Heart tribute bands will also be performing this Saturday, Dec 1st! It’s shaping up to be a beautiful weekend in Big Bear! Check out the other events below 🙂

Los Lonely Boys

Fri, Nov 30 | 6:30pm | $45 | Full Bar | All Ages   AUSTIN, Texas—“We decided to call this album Revelation because we want to make music that reveals something to people about their lives and their world,” says Jojo Garza. He’s talking about the new release by Los Lonely Boys, the close-knit Texas trio that the bassist/vocalist shares with his brothers Henry (vocals, guitar) and Ringo (drums, vocals). “As musicians and artists, we’re here to connect with people, and to share our view of things.” Revelation — to be released on the band’s own LonelyTone imprint Jan. 21, 2014, in association with the respected Austin-based indie Playing in Traffic — is a landmark release for the siblings. While maintaining the infectiously melodic mix of bluesy rock ’n’ roll and rootsy brown-eyed soul that’s long endeared Los Lonely Boys to its fiercely loyal fan base, Revelation adds an expansive range of new sonic elements, e.g. the conjunto touches of “Blame It On Love,” the reggae groove of “Give A Little More,” the rustic acoustic textures of “It’s Just My Heart Talkin’ and the baroque pop elements of “There’s Always Tomorrow.” Check it out Here!  

Fleetwood Mac vs. Heart

Sat, Dec 1st| 6:30pm | $20 | Full Bar | All Ages |

It’s a battle of the classic-rock cover bands when Fleetwood Mac tribute Mirage takes on Heart band Dog ‘n’ Butterfly at The Cave in Big Bear Village. With longtime Stevie Nicks impersonator Michelle Tyler at the helm, Mirage re-creates the look and sound of the ’70s icons with spot-on live versions of memorable hits like “Go Your Own Way,” “Don’t Stop,” “The Chain,” “Dreams,” “Rhiannon,” and more. Ann and Nancy Wilson themselves have given their stamp of approval to the Heart tribute group Dog ‘n’ Butterfly, who perfectly capture the original band’s high-energy concert experience, complete with retro-inspired costumes and renditions of songs like “Barracuda,” “Crazy On You,” “Magic Man,” “These Dreams” and more.   Check it out Here!

After almost two decades of paying tribute to The Prince Of Darkness, the passion for performing these incredible works burns stronger than ever in every one of the members… Through the last 19 years, the band has gone through countless members and incarnations, many whom have gone on to join up with larger than life acts making Mr. Crawley somewhat of a breeding ground.

Dokken

Nov 3| 6:30pm | $30 | Full Bar | All Ages

Dokken exploded out of the boiling hard rock/heavy metal scene in Los Angeles in the early 1980s. 1983’s “Breaking the Chains” with its catchy title track, set the stage for Dokken becoming the most dominant creative and commercial force in the world of Melodic Hard Rock for the following years. Such classic albums as “Tooth and Nail”, “Under Lock and Key” and “Back for the Attack” all became Multi-Platinum selling smashes and the live “Beast from the East” went gold in Europe and Japan. Songs like “Alone Again”, “Just Got Lucky”, “Into the Fire”, “In My Dreams”, “Unchain the Night”, “Dream Warriors”, “Burning like a Flame” and “Heaven Sent” are still nowadays regarded among the genre’s finest.

Concerts

Cubensis: Grateful Dead tribute

Sept 28 | 6:30pm | $15 | Full Bar | All Ages

Since 1987, Los Angeles-based band Cubensis has carried the torch in celebration of one of America’s most beloved touring bands, the Grateful Dead. Cubensis sets out to re-create the Grateful Dead experience by emulating the spirit of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, and the rest of the legendary San Francisco jam band. Cubensis plays complete shows covering all eras of the Grateful Dead, and no night is ever the same. Cubensis is far more than just your standard cover band as they bring the magic and sounds to those longing for the live vibe that only the Grateful Dead was able to deliver.

Cubensis performs its critically acclaimed live performance of Grateful Dead show recreations to audiences and venues all over the western United States. Giving homage in a continually evolving artistic outlet, the band recreates the Grateful Dead experience with compelling accuracy. Like the Dead, the band explores and searches out all the possibilities of the music.

 

 

Drowning Pool

Sept 29 | 6:30pm | $18 | Full Bar | All Ages

Giant riffs, crowd moving grooves and monstrous vocals are the tools with which DROWNING POOL build triumph out of tragedy, steadily evolve without compromise, and remain true to their supporters with over a decade’s worth of remarkable fortitude and attitude. HELLELUJAH is absolutely the album their diehard fans demanded and the aggressive heavy rock world at large deserved.

The platinum-plus conquerors from The Lone Star State deliver their heaviest batch of hell raising anthems, each burning with fiery adrenaline destined to light the radio ablaze and ignite crowds into impassioned sing-alongs. Only a few seconds into the album’s first single, “By the Blood,” it’s evident that Hellelujah is the most aggressive, ambitious, and truly definitive Drowning Pool album since Sinner, the platinum platter that gave the world Top 20 rock radio hit “Tear Away” and the massively successful “Bodies.”
