Toad the Wet Sprocket, Charlies, Ventura California

There once was a band, named after a Monty Python routine, that played near the beach in my home town. Now if you play music near the beach in my home town, you could get arrested.

Jackass, The Ban-Dar, Ventura, California

As the city of my birth celebrates its 150th birthday this year, I just want to ask this question:

Who remembers the Ban-Dar?

I do.

"Bowlful of Blues, Ojai, California, 1983

This is the promo packet for the very first "Bowlful of Blues," which was held in Ojai, California, on 9-24-1983. Over the holidays I finally got to meet one of my favorite writers, who is also a lover of Ventura County history, so this one is for her. Hi Peggy!
