Desi Ramone

Desi Ramone is a far cry from your typical singer-songwriter act. Standing at 6.2 and decked out in classic western wear, he plays his Gibson J-100 through Marshall Acoustic Amp, unleashing a unique live performance that blends the sounds of Surf, Bo Diddley, Hooker Blues Power Pop and Honky Tonk. He has one purpose – to make you dance. “I only play three styles – Johnny Cash, Johnny Ramone and Johnny B Goode.”

Born just North of Modesto CA, Desi grew up listening to Honky Tonk on forgotten jukeboxes, Mexican Folk and Classic 50’s on am radio then later English New Wave and LA Punk on late night Berkley College Radio. After spending some time in NYC , Desi has called Southern California his home for quite some time now.

As a drummer, Desi worked in various Surf and Rockabilly bands around LA area, before moving over to acoustic guitar, playing rhythm guitar in a variety of Bluegrass and Country bands. Then on 12/31/12 (the anniversary of country music legend Hank Williams death) Desi decides it is time to front his own project, which led to the release of “Waiting”.

“I wanted to honor Hank Williams by playing my songs the way I want to play em” Ramone Says.

Desi has been featured on radio station, KXLU 88.5FM, www.radiovenice.tv and Internet Show, LAartstream.com. He has also appeared live on the Venice Pop-Up Open Mic Night on Wednesday nights. He frequently plays/busk on Abbott Kinney and Windward Circle where he sets up PA, amp, fog machine with stage lighting and a flying saucer looking platform to stand on just to make it official. “I figure more people will see me and remember me doin my act on the street than in a club”. His latest single “Red and Yellow Roses”, featuring the great Chris Lawrence on pedal steel and was mixed by Marty Rifkin available on www.cdbaby.com.

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!”

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.
