Big Boss Bubeleh

“Way into the windy halls of human emotions, Big Boss Bubeleh holds a light – as it is words, music, music and words that make this place sensible again. Influenced by our world’s expansive musical culture/history and geographically united in San Diego from much further pebbles, their language shifts frequently and so do the scales. And needing to move their ancient muses back into the foreground, their songs are categorized in gypsy jazzy klezmer pop.

Yael and Vlady began their collaboration in life, love and songwriting years ago and released their first LP, Delicious in ze Middle in 2012. They are the symbiotic hearts of the Big Boss Bubeleh band, and gather other musicians to beat along. Their collective sound of guitar and violin, their groovy bass, their variously crafted melodies make each of their performances uniquely entertaining and stimulating.

Their second LP called A Droite, released in 2017 is an evolution of their forces together. The 14 song bushel connects new musician friends into the Big Boss Bubeleh band, and even keeps a couple of our departed friends remembered. The work was greatly appreciated by the local music reviewers and pushes BBB gently into their latest endeavor, the making of a live recording album. Stay tuned!”

– Penned by a close friend of the band

Sean Oliu

Sean Oliu is a young singer, songwriter, musician and actor from Anaheim, California. He is one of the youngest Mouseketeers on the digital-first variety program Club Mickey Mouse. In 2013 at age 11, he competed on the NBC/Telemundo program “La Voz Kids”, the Spanish language version of The Voice. He advanced out of a pool of over 6500 invited contestants to be one of six finalists.

As a young boy, Sean was introduced to classic country music artists such as: Johnny Cash, Tennessee Ernie Ford and Hank Williams by his grandfather. He fell in love with the genre and has blended it with blues, Americana and early rock n’ roll forming his unique musical style.

Sean was chosen as one of the 2017 Top 100 Influencers of Orange County. The OC Family Magazine named him the 2017 “OC Whiz Kid”. He was also featured as a Person of Interest in the July 2016 Orange County’s Very Best issue of Orange Coast Magazine.

Sean opened for Rachel Patten at the “VH1 Save The Music Holiday Concert”. He was selected to record and enact Remember Me and Un Poco Loco along side of Anthony Gonzalez (from the movie “Coco”) – live for a Disney Park surprise. He also performed at “VH1 Save the Music” at LA Fashion Week, and Ron Howard’s “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week” documentary release party at El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on September 17, 2016.

Music has opened many doors for Sean. In fact, he feels so strongly about the importance of music that he started an annual fundraiser and non-profit called, “Kids Giving Back” to support music in our schools. To date “Kids Giving Back” has raised over $50,000.

Desi Ramone

First and foremost, Desi Ramone is a performance artist. Yes, he writes and sings his original songs but a far cry from the normal humdrum singer/songwriter act.

Standing at 6ft 2 in classic western wear, Desi mixes up his 45 set like a toss salad. Covers and originals to the beats of Surf, Bo Diddly, Hooker Blues, Folk, Powerpop, Honky Tonk. It’s played all on his Gibson Acoustic through Fender Deluxe amp with one purpose … to get you dancing.

Lately he’s been rocking weekly at the Venice Open Mic Night at Larry’s.

“I only play three styles … Johnny Cash, Johnny Ramone and Johnny B Goode” is how he describes his talent. From Modesto CA, via New York City, and now sunny So Cal, he has sat behind the drum set in many trios, then moved to rhythm guitar in bluegrass and country bands as a hired gun. It was on 12/31/12, the 60th anniversary of Hank Williams Sr’s death, Desi Ramone decided, in honor of Hank Sr, “I will do my own songs the way I wanna play em.”

In March 2017 Desi released his single “Red And Yellow Roses” available to buy today on cdbaby (see link below). By year’s end there will be two more singles … a Blasters tune “Little Honey” and another power poppy original “You are gonna be a big queen one day”.

Indi and The Vegas

Indi and The Vegas are a British pop/rock band formed in 2009 by Indi Forde, Joe Cripps and Matt Singleton. The 3 met in high school as avid musicians with similar music tastes, citing Queen, Michael Jackson and the Chilli Peppers as major influences in their choice in pursuing music as a career.

Their first EP, titled ‘Fair Fight’ was self released in 2011, and a follow up, self titled album in 2014. Tracks from the album were picked up by BBC Introducing and played on air, securing the band sets at many shows and festivals throughout the UK, and gaining House Band status at The Hermitage, Hitchin.

In October 2015 the band embarked on a trip to the US, playing such prestigious LA venues as The Whisky A Go-Go, The Federal and The Viper Lounge to great reception.

On a later trip to LA, 2016, they met Zaro Vega, an up and coming producer/artist and an ideal partner to develop their sound and tracks to international level quality.

Their first official single, Round and Round, features DANIELA and is produced by Zaro Vega, to be released Summer 2018.
