Anna Marie 
 
 
"It all started in the summer of 1991. . My parents purchased tickets to attend a Judd's Concert. I was very excited but had no idea the impact that this one show would have on my life. After seeing the mother-daughter combination put on an awesome show, I knew that this was what I wanted. I was going to play guitar and entertain anyone who would listen. After a year of begging my parents for a guitar, they finally bought me an old classical guitar and scheduled my first guitar lesson. Four years later I started singing at local open mic nights in town, and singing every Friday and Saturday night during my high school days. I also joined my high school's Swing Band. I took every chance I had to perform. I began writing my own material and eventually invited my sister-in-law, Tina Michelle to sing.... I now have established my band, a great group of accomplished musicians, songwriters and singer. I have played for such acclaimed artist as The Oakridge Boys, Billy Vera & The Beaters, The Nelson, Sally Taylor, Ty Herndon and Hal Ketchum. Music is in my blood, it will never go away. I write about what I feel, see and know is real. I set out to take my audience on an emotional roller coaster. One that will leave them wanting more...I hope you enjoy my website. "

James Harman Band "Those Dangerous Gentlemens" 
 
 
"James Harman lives in southern California, but his music clearly reflects his southeastern roots. Born in 1946 in Anniston, Ala., to musical parents, Harman began piano lessons at age four and sang in the church choir. His father's Hohner harmonicas were in the piano bench, and he would play them after his piano lessons. He experimented with other instruments as well, including guitar, organ, bass and drums, performing solo and with family members at dances and country suppers. He found the blues early in life, both on black radio and on the street corner: 'Radio' Johnson, a local blind street singer who played slide guitar with a knife, was an early influence and collaborator.... In more than four decades of touring and recording, Harman has staked his claim as an original, legitimate blues artist, musician and producer. In his recordings and live performances, James creates music that stands out as unique and personal yet clearly reflects his passion for the roots of the blues. Harman learned a key secret years ago: You have to develop your own approach and identity in order to have lasting success. As vocalist, musician and songwriter, James Harman chronicles life with energy, wit and humor. He has a novelist's eye for detail and irony, and the result is well-conceived music that stands the test of time. Harman's roots are apparent in his recordings and live performances. He is a disciple of the classic qualities of the Southern blues tradition. Still, like his mentors, Harman is telling his own stories. He knows the difference between innovation and imitation, and his own character as a blues artist is fully reflected in his work. In all cases, he remains true to his credo: Strictly the blues."  Huntington Beach

Pamela G

She puts hand clapping and foot tapping renditions together, which consists of our favorite Blues, R & B, and Jazz tunes. Pamela G delivers spiritually power filled performances that leave you wanting more and more. Pamela G is totally 'N' Control, smooth, sophisticated, and sincere about her music goals and her recordings. She is all business and very protective of her fans and family. Hailing from San Bernardino, CA., she grew up with the respect and passion for the works of Etta James, Sarah Vaughn, Big Mama Thorton, and Bessie Smith, just to name a few. Her favorite instrument is the guitar. It's no wonder why she loves the music played by: The late, the great Stevie Ray Vaughn Tommy Castro (her favorite 'guitar man' whom she opened for several times at The Coach House and Galaxy Theater) Buddy Guy (whom she headlined with at the Doheny Blues Festival) B.B. King, The 'King of the Blues'"  Garden Grove
