With this Festival, the City brings together various styles of music for three fun-filled days of lyrical pleasure. The Festival is sure to draw thousands of people for a full weekend of fun and relaxation.

The Yucaipa Music and Arts Festival’s appeal as an affordable family event is one of many reasons it is quickly becoming a premier event in the Inland Empire and in Southern California.

This year’s festivities will offer a lineup of classic rock and country themed musical entertainment with a feature performance by rock artists Marcy Playground, Dishwalla, Fuel, and Candlebox. Friday night entertainment will feature performances by Yachty by Nature and country music sensation James Wesley. The Festival will close Sunday evening with the San Bernardino Teen Music Workshop and Rod Piazza & The Mighty Flyers.

Come immerse yourself in the full experience of the Historic Uptown by visiting local vendors and farmers’ market booths, participating in the “Taste of Our Town,” and cheer on your favorite performer in the Yucaipa’s Got Talent competition. Watch adult tricycle racing, sponsored by the local Kiwanis and Rotary Clubs or be mesmerized by the roaming entertainment. If precious stones and art is your interest, then the Gem and Mineral Show and Artists’ Row is a must see! Once again, the City is partnering with the Woman’s Club, located on Adams and Ave A, to offer a nice cool place to hold the Flower Show.

Don’t forget the kids! There’s plenty for them to do with carnival rides, a kids zone, and a dedicated youth stage. If you’re hungry, no need to leave the event, a wide variety of food vendors will be on hand to satisfy your taste buds. These are just a few of the activities planned for the event, so take a look around and see all that is in store for the 2017 Yucaipa Music and Arts Festival.

MOLTEN METAL: Mayhem in San Bernardino, CA

 

 

My favorite time of the year, the annual MayhemFest, kicked off its 6th tour in San Bernardino on June 29th, 2013. What better way to spend a scorching hot summer day than with thousands of sweaty metalheads in the dirt and completely unleash the beast within!  This year’s lineup was extra HEAVY! I caught full sets of BattleCross, Son of Osirus, Machine Head, and Children of Bodom on both the Jagermeister stage and the Musician Institute stage. I also caught a few songs from Job For a Cowboy‘s set, which I enjoyed tremendously. My green VIP wrist band gave me access backstage, where I ran into a few of my favorite metal dudes. Right before Machine Head was to hit the stage, I saw Phil Demmel and we started talking.  All of a sudden, Jason Hook of Five Finger Death Punch rides up on a green dirt bike. I stopped him and asked him to join us in a photo-op and he was down!  Totally surreal and way cool of him! Everyone was in a good mood despite the heat!  Machine Head really killed it with a powerful performance and killer stage set up. I was rocking out on stage with them, looking out at the sea of metalheads crowd surfing to the almighty Rob Flynn.  The crowd surfing was out of control!  I have never seen so many girls crowd surf at a metal show.  Everyone was going nuts, but at the same time making sure no one was getting hurt.  Backstage, I ran into Mike Faley of Metal Blade Records. He was keeping cool in a seat in the shade.  I told him how sick BatterCross’s performance was and he agreed!  In a previous interview I had with Brian Slagel of Metal Blade Records, he mentioned how much he liked BattleCross and to keep a look out for them this summer. He was right, I was blown away. I bought a CD and a T-shirt form the lead singer, Kyle “Gumby” Gunther and had the band sign it! I am digging the new BattleCross album “War of Will.”   It’s intense!  Another band I’ve never seen live that I am now totally into is Born of Osiris! Pretty powerful how they mix in beats and keyboard! Children of Bodom played last on the Music Institute Stage. Alexi Laiho can do no wrong. He is the ultimate shredder! Continue reading
