Concerts

Faster Pussycat

Hollywood sleaze rockers Faster Pussycat made their mark in the world with a self-titled debut in 1987 and the 1989 gold album Wake Me When It’s Over, which spawned the hit single and video “House of Pain.”

The band originally formed in 1985, famously taking its name from the Russ Meyer oult film Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! During their early commercial peak the band line-up was Taime Downe (vocals), Greg Steele (guitar), Brent Musoat (guitar), Kelly Nickels (bass) and Mark Michals (drums).

Prior to the band’s break-up in 1992, Downe had already been working with the ground breaking industrial collective Pigface. After Pussycat, he formed the darkly brilliant Newlydeads, along with Kyle Kyle (Bang Tango). A Newlydeads self-titled LP appeared in 1997. They released a remix project called Re-Bound shortly thereafter and Dead End in 2001. That same year Downe resurrected a rock-driven, more evolved Faster Pussycat with original members Muscat (guitar_ and Steele (guitar) playing alongside Newlydeads Xristian Simon (guitar), Danny Nordahl (bass), and Chad Stewart (drums)

Berlin feat Terri Nunn

This Los Angeles-based synth pop group, founded by bassist John Crawford, singer Terri Nunn, and keyboard player David Diamond, made its first national impression with the provocative single “Sex (I’m A…)” from the gold-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim in 1982. The group was filled out by guitarist Rick Olsen, keyboard player Matt Reid, and drummer Rob Brill. Berlin’s first full-length LP was the gold Love Life in 1984. In 1985, the group was pared down to a trio of Crawford, Nunn, and Brill. Berlin topped the charts in 1986 with the single “Take My Breath Away,” the love theme from the Tom Cruise movie Top Gun.

Nunn left for a solo career in 1987, and Crawford and Brill teamed up in the Big F. In 1999, the band reunited to record some new studio material and also performed a concert, which, along with the new songs, was released as 2000’s Berlin Live: Sacred and Profane. This was followed a year later by a flurry of recording sessions that included co-writing tracks with Billy Corgan, among others. The end result, Voyeur, was their first full-length studio release in over 15 years.

Concerts

X | Ellecttrodomestico

August 17 | 6:30pm | $30 | Full Bar | All Ages

EXENE CERVENKA – JOHN DOE – BILLY ZOOM – DJ BONEBRAKE
THE FACT IS, NO ONE SOUNDS LIKE X AND NO ONE EVER WILL.
It’s not surprising when you consider the group’s unique beginnings, which can only be attributed to fate. On the same day with nearly the exact same wording, two want-ads appear in a local music rag. One was sent in by a guitarist named Billy Zoom, the other by bassist who called himself John Doe.

Zoom, a rockabilly rebel who’d performed with Gene Vincent, had read a negative review of a band called the Ramones. It said they only played three chords and they played ‘em too fast. So naturally, he went to see them. The show was at the Golden West Ballroom in the L.A. suburb of Norwalk in early ’77, and as soon as the Ramones started to perform, Zoom realized that, musically, he’d found exactly what he wanted to do with his life.

Doe, who was originally from the Baltimore area, was already down with the East Coast CBGB’s scene and by the time the two got in the same room together after responding to each other’s ads, it seemed it was meant to be. They performed a few shows with various drummers before a poet with no ambition of being a singer would enter the picture.

Country Night at The Cave

About Redwood Black

Redwood Black came to life in 2017. Members JT Harker, Joe Devenney, Alex Seller, Todd Coogan, and Joe Conner, previously were known as the band Honky Tonk Boombox. Residing in the metropolis of Los Angeles, California, their sound combines the richness and depth of California’s country music heritage and a rock/pop edge that only comes from being immersed in the LA music scene. The band released their debut single “Murder In Georgia” in late 2017. To get all the latest news and updates, sign up for their mailing list below. See you on the road!

About Rob Leines

Rob Leines’ music originated in the Southeast within the Appalachian Mountains.  With the influence of Country, Rock and Roll, and Blues, his unique Americana sound was born on the hills of Tennessee.  Soon after Leines expanded to the west. While welding and metal working for the oil and gas industry along the pacific coast, Rob’s music took on a more raw and gritty side. The blue collar lifestyle and southern roots make for a genuine representation of the American songwriter through his music.  The Rob Leines Band is a fresh sound, with a rowdy charisma and attitude that country rock needs. His upcoming album, “Bad Seed” will be released MAY 13th

About The Rhyolite Sound

Formed in Las Vegas, NV in 2013, The Rhyolite Sound bring their own desert honky tonk to the stage blending elements of Outlaw, Rockabilly, Honky Tonk, Blues, and Rock N Roll. Their aim is to attract the hardest core traditionalist as well as the most casual country music fan with a live show that’s raucous and rowdy, containing plenty of banter in between songs to keep their audience entertained. Delicately weaving their melodies and harmonies alongside madness and mayhem, The Rhyolite Sound are purveyors of pure honky tonk in an impure world.

Doors 6:30 PM | Opening Act 7:30 PM | Headlining Act 9 PM

Geoff Tate’s 30th Anniversary of Operation: Mindcrime

When most musicians record solo albums, it’s because they need an outlet for material that doesn’t fit the scope of their band. That wasn’t the case with Geoff Tate. While there’s very little on his solo debut that couldn’t fit within the ever-evolving musical scope of Queensrÿche, the difference for the vocalist lies in the expression of those songs, and how they actually came to fruition.

“The problem when you’re in a creative environment is keeping things fresh and invigorating, and after working with the same people for twenty years, it gets very difficult—You walk into the room, and everybody knows what everybody is going to do,” explains the frontman. “There’s no spark of new blood, the chemistry is very tried and true, and you just keep coming up with the same ways of expressing yourself. What’s nice about doing a side project with new people, is that it’s a whole new breed, and a bunch of new ideas, musical backgrounds, emotional baggage, and whatever else it takes to create. It’s a whole new set of parameters, so it’s all new, everyone has ideas you haven’t heard before, and everyone is throwing them against the wall. It takes on a whole new life.”

With his profound natural talent and influenced by legends Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe, Bob Andy and many others, Freddie finessed his craft to become one of reggae’s greatest singers. Early tracks like Why Did You Do It and Do Good and Good Will Follow You propelled his career in the mid-sixties. He followed the group the Claredonians to Kingston and later teamed up with Ernest “Fitzroy” Wilson to form the duo Fitzie and Freddie recording for Coxone Dodd’s Studio One label.

Queen Nation

June 30 | 6:30pm | $15 | Full Bar | All Ages

There is little doubt among the pure rock community that the legendary band Queen and lead performer Freddie Mercury earn high ranks as one of the most powerful and iconic groups in rock history. Queen, the kings of arena rock, performed to packed stadiums around the globe for over two decades. Freddie took showmanship by a rock front man to a new untapped level and was undisputedly crowned the lord of arena rock. He mesmerized audiences with his charismatic energy and larger than life stage persona. Upon his death in 1991, a huge void was left in the rock concert world, which to this day has not yet been matched.

Queen Nation, a tribute to Queen, was formed in 2004. Queen Nation consists of: Gregory Finsley on vocals & keyboards as Freddie Mercury, Mike McManus on guitar as Brian May, Pete Burke on drums as Roger Taylor, and Parker Combs on bass as John Deacon. The mission of the show is to carry on the musical torch and pay homage to the golden age of vintage Queen concerts.

Queen Nation’s live 90-minute production of Queen’s greatest hits preserves the image, sound, and stage persona of vintage Queen. Audiences are amazed at the accuracy of Queen Nation’s live retrospective journey through such Queen songs as We Will Rock You – Bohemian Rhapsody – We Are The Champions – Crazy Little Thing Called Love – You’re My Best Friend – Another One Bites The Dust – Under Pressure and many more. They have performed in front of thousands of people at casinos, fairs, festivals and private affairs.

This is a great project that can be worn multiple ways. Once you get your gauge right, I’ll show you how to adapt this vest to any size, so if you’re looking for a creative project to share with your teen during the summer holidays why not create this beautiful project together?

If you need to learn to crochet in advance of this CAL please drop in to our free classes and help session on Tuesdays 4-6pm, and Saturdays 3-5pm.

Each session is formatted so that we walk you through the tricky bits and get you started on the stitch pattern that you will need to repeat and work on in between weekly sessions. If at any point during the week you get stuck on your pattern, or if you can’t make a Friday session and you need to make it up, you’re always welcome to drop in to our help sessions as well, Tuesdays 4-6 and Saturdays 3-5pm.

Our last session will end in a Friday night excursion into town where we all show off our vests!

Al Jardine – Surf Rock Legend

Al Jardine at The Cave

Al Jardine at The Cave

Al Jardine, a founding member of The Beach Boys, will be performing on Friday, June 15th. He will be debuting his solo release of “A Postcard from California”, with his very own son at his side! In an intimate acoustic setting Including rare images and video, Mr. Jardine takes us back into a history so improbable that it must have been meant to be!  From meeting Elvis Presley to making “Pet Sounds”, here are the songs, stories and harmonies that moved generations in one unforgettable evening.

Al is performing at The Cave and is joined by his son Matt Jardine, known for his breathtaking falsettos on Brian Wilson’s most recent Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Tour, as well as Jeff Alan Ross, former member of the legendary Apple Records band Badfinger and musical director for Grammy award winning producer Peter Asher.

Puddle of Mudd

Puddle of Mudd at The Cave

Puddle of Mudd at The Cave

Puddle Of Mudd is an American post-grunge band from Kansas City, Missouri. The band has sold over 7 million albums and has a string of No.1 mainstream rock singles in the US. Their major label debut ‘Come Clean’ has sold over five million copies. Ask Puddle of Mudd frontman Wes Scantlin about the writing and recording of the album Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love & Hate, and he responds with the same spirit of carefree wanderlust that defines his band: “It’s all easy peezy, dude, no big deal at all…”

Not to him, maybe. Wes Scantlin is custom-made for the new millennium, a rock star without the pretense, and a frontman whose spontaneity propels his offstage personality as much as it does his onstage delivery. “Wes is constantly adjusting to the vibe in the room, throwing his flavor in there and constantly trying to make people laugh,” explains bassist Doug Ardito. “He doesn’t do the David Lee Roth thing, where he delivers the same lines every night, he’s completely off-the-cuff.”

Jun 16, 2018 | 07:00AM – 03:00PM

Holcomb Valley Trail Run

Holcomb Valley Trail Run

Starting at the water’s edge of Big Bear Lake, the Holcomb Valley Trail Run brings runners deep into the heart of the most scenic area in Big Bear, Holcomb Valley. Breathtaking views of the San Gorgonio Wilderness Area, Big Bear Lake, and the surrounding valley can be seen from the miles of single track running along the Pacific Crest Trail.  The Holcomb Valley Trail Run offers three separate distances: a 33-mile race, a 15-mile race, and a 7-mile race. Sections of the Pacific Crest Trail are part of each race course. This is some of the best trail running in Southern California; so sign up early, the race has sold out the past 5 years.

Now in it’s 22nd year, the Holcomb Valley Trail Run was established by Gary & Pam Kalina in 1997. Gary was an avid runner; he realized that some of the best trail running in Southern California was right here in Big Bear. Their involvement is crucial to the success of the event. Gary and Pam had decided after 15 years of event directing and coordination it was time to close that chapter in their life. Team Big Bear now runs the event in their honor

Concerts

Uptown Funk – tribute to Bruno Mars

Uptown Funk is comprised of the best musicians and performers, specializing in a complete Bruno Mars concert production. These musicians love what they do and work hard together at being one of the very best tribute bands in the industry. Uptown Funk performs the full range of Bruno Mars’ live band onstage, including some of the most complex and challenging songs recorded and performed for live audiences. No other rendition of Bruno Mars’ music comes close to this level of accuracy during live performance, which has taken time to master, with unmatched attention to detail. Uptown Funk’s stage production captures it all flawlessly.

Opening the show is our local youth orchestra, Mountain Top Strings! This is an amazing group of talented up and coming musicians from our home town of Big Bear Lake. They work incredibly hard and deliver an amazing performance. Grab your tickets at the link below!
