Roadhouse Band Offers Blues and Rock to Chili Tasters and Car Lovers

Snuggled in with smoking hot chili, tongue-tingling salsa and spit-polished classic and muscle cars, the stage in the Chili Cook-off and Car Show area of the Cypress Community Festival will serve up the Roadhouse Band from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m on Festival Day, Saturday, July 28.

This local Orange County music group — made up of four friends who met more than 25 years ago at Pacifica High School in Garden Grove — combines blues tunes and classic rock for a maximum mix of dancing and listening pleasure. The group has played many SoCal clubs and venues, most recently at Original Mike’s Restaurant and the Orange Street Fair.

The four band members are passionate about music that covers more than 30 years. The lead guitarist is Kurt King, backed up by Steve Mills. Brian Bevilacqua plays bass. Tony Schirner keeps the beat on drums.

Each year the band’s popularity grows with its Cypress Festival audience. This year you can expect to hear great tunes like “Mustang Sally,” “Brown Eyed Girl,” and “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg.” The Cypress Community Festival is pleased to welcome Roadhouse back to our Chili and Car Show Stage.

The Cypress Festival will be held at Oak Knoll Park, 5700 Orange Ave. (west of Valley View St.) in Cypress. For more information, visit the Cypress Community Festival website at http://www.cypressfestival.com/

Chris Anderson Group to Light up Cypress Festival Main Stage with Soulful Blues and Rock ‘n’ Roll

The Chris Anderson Group, also known as CAG, will rock out on the Main Stage of the Cypress Community Festival at High Noon on Saturday, July 28. This trio thrills audiences with their blues, soul, and rock ’n roll music.

You’ll hear Chris Anderson singing and playing his guitar. Rich Smith also sings and plays the drums, and Mike Casper is their bass guitar player and backup vocalist.

Influenced by Chicago, Memphis and Texas style blues along with rock, soul and reggae, CAG’s live shows excite and electrify audiences.

In February of 2012 CAG was selected as winners of the Anaheim Ducks OC/LA Concert Series. Bands from all over the greater Southern California area participated in this contest which began in October 2011. After the final fans voting tally CAG took home the Grand Prize.

As a direct result of that win, CAG performed at the Second Annual “Rivalry Hold ’em Poker Challenge” in March 2012.

CAG loves to perform and currently play eight to ten shows per month at many Orange County and Southern California venues, such as Taps in Brea, Stubrik’s in Fullerton, and Lucille’s restaurants. Whether they are playing original material or cover tunes, their live shows are always lots of fun!
