SAN DIEGO, Feb. 29, 2012 – Coastkeeper’s Ocean Commotion concert invites San Diegans to come support their local music, businesses and ocean watchdogs on March 7 from 8 p.m. – 11 p.m. The bands, The Barnwell Shift, Big Penny and special guests GGBB, will perform live music with local flair and unite the community in a live musical celebration of San Diego’s inland and coastal waters.
Based in Oceanside, The Barnwell Shift are known as multi-instrumentalists at heart. The originators of folk, funk and rock, the band will blend all three genres of music into one amazing performance.
The Valley Center’s Big Penny will use the guitar, harmonica, organ, drums, melodica, bass and mandolin to meld original folk, dark country and rock.
GGBB of Escondido, lead by the “Father of Soviet Rock ‘n’ Roll” Valery Siesky, will mix intricate keyboard licks, “raunchy rock ‘n’ roll guitar” and drumming to create a unique live sound.
Along with live music, favorite drinks and conversations with Coastkeeper crew and friends, guests can partake in an opportunity drawing of prizes. The prizes range from gift cards, gear and apparel to a week stay at Seapointe Resort in Carlsbad. The guests will also have a unique opportunity to win a one-of-a-kind Linden Surfboard donated by Gary Linden.
The tickets are $10 online at www.bellyup.com/show/detail/56050, or $12 at the door. The event is 21 and up. All proceeds of this event will benefit San Diego Coastkeeper and their work to protect and maintain the health of inland and coastal waters.
