The City of Pismo Beach Recreation Division proudly presents the Fourth Annual Pacific Breeze Concerts at Dinosaur Caves Park. This three show spring series will again feature exceptional regional musical groups as well as special family activities and as always is FREE! On June 10th come join the rockin’ rhythm and blues of Big Daddy’s Blues Band! Fans have found that Big Daddy’s smokin’ versions of old favorites and the band’s house rockin’ originals keep ‘em comin’ back for more. So come on out and boogie with Stan ‘the Rock’ Manning, Greg ‘Money’ Barnes, Crackin’ Jack Collins, ‘Big Easy’ Eric Stevers, and Smokin’ Joe Pilloud at our final concert of the Pacific Breeze Concert series
This year’s final in the Spring Concert series drew a huge crowd to listen and dance to the Damon Castillo Band at Dinosaur Caves Park despite somewhat breezy conditions. The Shell Beach Improvement Group handed out red roses to the mothers.
Cuesta Ridge is a band born in the sweet confines of the Santa Lucia Mountains, on California’s central coast. This five-piece, bluegrass-injected, Americana-rock conglomerate has been together since 2004, and their experience in the local music scene is broad. With members also playing in variety of other local bands such as Resination, Hip Deep, Tripledub, Stank Finatra, Ouroboros, The Tipsy Gypsies and Goza, their SLO roots sustain consistent growth.
A standard Cuesta Ridge show includes a variety of flavor and there is always something new for the die-hard fans. Constantly writing new originals, this talented bunch also likes to challenge themselves with fresh covers at each gathering. Influences range from Django Rheinhardt, Bill Monroe and David Grisman all the way to Bob Marley, Janes Addiction and Motorhead.
The band’s upbeat nature attracts movers and shakers while their sophistication corrals musicologists and aficionados.
Previous venues include the Live Oak Music Festival, Morro Bay Harbor Festival, Downtown Brew, California Mid State Fair, SLO Concerts in the Plaza, Mother’s Tavern and Stone Soup Music Faire to name just a few.
Cuesta Ridge includes Toan Chau (guitar/vocals), Patrick Pearson (guitar/vocals), Dan Keller (mandolin/vocals),
Brent Vander Weide (percussion/vocals) and Matt Reeder (upright bass/vocals).
