Local Band
updated: Feb 20, 2013, 1:00 PM

I'm looking for a local band that is reasonably priced. Music genre's can be open, it's more about how good they are! Its for a birthday party. I'm open to reggae, blues, blue grass, country, classic rock, cover bands.

Anthony Ybarra! Ybarra music dot com. You can listen to samples online. He played at our wedding and everyone enjoyed him - he can play solo or with a group. Very reasonably priced.

Try "Bare Feet", an excellent local progressive, reggae, rock band that has many of their own songs, but they also do cover songs. Call Jacob, lead singer / guitarist at 805-345-0860.

To OP - the question is, do you want the band for background music or a more front and center - dancing type of scene? We've got a lot of great bands here. The Rawhides (from the SY Valley) play great country/blues/rock music and covers. The Bomb is a well-known local band that does great covers and fun r&b dance hits. I also love Tom Ball & Kenny Sultan. But if you want something more background music, there are a lot of good guitar players (like the dude that plays at Endless Summer during happy hour!)

Try Doug Giordoni. He is a single singer with a guitar but he is very diverse and entertaining for parties. (805) 252-7751.

I like Tequila Mockingbird. They just recorded a demo of Tainted Love. It is on youtube and it rocks! I would post the link, but we all know what happens then right?

Fossils and Beer30 are fun "bar-type" bands. Flock of Cougars are VERY good and play a ton of covers. Sean Wiggins and Lone Goat are very, very good as well. They play Cold Springs a lot.

a few years back we would always go see a great cover band at the Creekside, I believe they were called "the american whiskey band" it was a handful of young 20 something SB kids. good music and they always put on a good show, but its been a while since Ive seen them play.

The Rawhides. Solid country/rock/blues even surf. Saw them at the stow house and carriage museum and they rocked.
