New Orleans-style jazz
- Angel City Dixieland Band ⇒
One of Los Angeles’s longest-running New Orleans-type bands, the ANGEL CITY DIXIELAND BAND performs all the songs from the city people call “The Big Easy.” Formed by trumpeter Chris Tedesco 33 years ago in 1987, the band soon became in demand at Disneyland as well as other Southern California theme parks and can be found performing all the way from San Diego to Santa Barbara. Yearly, they are the LA Dodgers’ Dixieland band of choice for opening day and whenever the team is in the World Series.
The Angel City Dixieland Band performs all of the most memorable, upbeat Dixieland tunes such as “When Saints Go Marching In,” “Sweet Georgia Brown,” “Hello Dolly,” and many other tunes made famous by trumpeter/vocalist Louis Armstrong, The Firehouse Five, trumpeter Al Hirt, and clarinetist Pete Fountain.More information at Angel City Dixieland Band
Folk harmonies and string instruments
- The Riverside ⇒
Creating a magical and organic vibe that translates into the feeling of the music. Since 2012, the band has released four homegrown records and an EP. “The Riverside is a traditional melodic and harmony-driven folk string band hailing from Southern California, founded by husband and wife Jake and Lorien Jeanson in 2012. The highly engaging four-piece [band] dynamically performs around one microphone, where each instrument and voice crafts a specific part of each story; creating intimate, savory folk music that warms the heart and feeds the soul.” - Nicholas Edward Williams, Earthtone Booking.

Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band truly provided the soundtrack to a generation, especially for those growing up in the Mid-West.

The Doors and Jim Morrison tribute.
- Wild Child ⇒
Since Wild Child debuted, the act has been touring and playing at sold-out national venues and festivals around the world. The Los Angeles Times said, “Wild Child is a winner! What's amazing is that vocalist Dave Brock sings like Morrison, enough to imperil the snowflake analogy about no two sets of vocal cords to be able to produce the exact same vocal tone.” The Daily Bulletin said “Brock, who bears more than a passing resemblance, evokes the Morrison persona without being forced.” Jim Ladd, the famous Los Angeles KLOS FM radio DJ and Rock and Roll critic described Wild Child to his listeners: “These Guys are excellent, not a cartoon version of The Doors but a very loving and respectful, accurate, and well done tribute to The Doors.”
