Conejo.Rocks — Series

guitar

This page lists this year's events grouped by concert series. If it's not part of a series then it won't be on this page. Unlike the main page, all of the events are shown instead of only future ones.

Conejo.Rocks focuses on free live music in and around the Conejo Valley. Its home page displays the activities in an order that puts the shows that are coming up next at the top of the list. Many of the festivals and shows are presented by the cities, parks and shopping areas. Because they tend to take place outdoor, they also typically happen during the spring and summer.

This site listed a total of 15 events for 2020. There were 102 events last year.

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.

Performer information
  • 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.”

5 - 8 PM at Peter Strauss Ranch in Agoura Hills (map)
Both artists way their sound is hard to categorize; I gave up trying to figure it out. Both are singer/songwriters with an edge.
Performer information
  • Laura Jean Anderson ⇒ "Rooted in old American music from soul to folk/americana to rock n roll, while embracing pushing the boundaries of modern music," is what her blurb says. But Conejo.Rocks hears a style of Patsy Cline with less country influence, and that at least means a great voice.
    More information at Laura Jean Anderson
  • Sunny War ⇒ Sunny War (born Sydney Lyndella Ward) is a singer/songwriter that is tough to pin down. What exactly is her style? Is she a blues or punk artist? The answer is yes and no. You can try to place Sunny in a few boxes, but doing so would be a major disservice to the young songstress. Yes, she may be a Robert Johnson with a shot of Bad Brains, but even this description falls short.
6 - 9 PM at Peter Strauss Ranch in Agoura Hills (map)
A blend of folk, country and rock.
Performer information
  • The Coffis Brothers ⇒ "The Coffis Brothers mix a blend of folk, country and rock with the intensity of personal lyrics into a gritty and often tender harmony of sound… a show that delivers one part Avett Brothers and one part early Neil Young for a full night of dancing and fun."
    More information at The Coffis Brothers
