Experience an interactive evening with Josh Sundquist, featuring a live performance of the hilarious storytelling and comedy that has earned him over 150 million views online. The bestselling author, comic and Paralympian tracked down all the girls he’d ever tried to date to ask why they rejected him. He shares the results of his semi-scientific investigation (and yes, it’s a true story) in this one-of-a-kind live performance that blends interactive storytelling with stand-up comedy. From a disastrous mini-golf date involving a backward prosthetic foot to a misguided “grand gesture” at a Miss America pageant, it’s a story about looking for love — or at least a girlfriend — in all the wrong places.
Everyone needs to let loose with a little good old-fashioned adult debauchery now and then.

Power Blues Trios: Mike Eldred & Eric Tessmer bands. Eric Tessmer is widely considered one of the most vibrant guitarists to follow in the footsteps of blues-rock legends such as Stevie Ray Vaughan and his namesake predecessors. He was actually named after Eric Clapton. His live shows have captured audiences’ attention across the United States as power-packed sessions of wickedly fast and precise licks that can light the house on fire – without the need for lighter fluid. “This guitar prodigy plays like a man possessed.” – Boston Globe. “Tessmer holds a nightly clinic, a sermon if you will, in Strat manipulation.” – Rank & Revue. “Tessmer is the real deal.’ – The Austinist. Mike Eldred is known for red-hot Americana roots music from one of L.A.‘s premier guitarists backed by the Blasters bassist John Bazz with JR Lozano on drums. "He’s not afraid of blurring lines in American Music. By bending all of his favorite musical styles, Mike has created his own original voice in modern electric guitar playing. HE’S WHAT IT’S ALL ABOUT, BABY!" raved Brian Setzer about Eldred’s playing on MET’s first CD. “It’s like listening to what the Clash might have done if they had been born 20 years earlier…” – Blues Blast Magazine.

The Dickies, whose very existence is a glorification of humor and silliness, hold the title of being the first California punk band ever to be signed to a major label. With the band’s final album in the works, The Dickies have somehow managed to be one of the longest-running punk bands in the world.

Guitar Shorty began playing guitar as a young boy, excited by the sounds of B.B. King, Guitar Slim, T-Bone Walker and John Lee Hooker. After a move to Tampa when he was 17, he won a slot as a featured guitarist and vocalist in the locally popular 18-piece orchestra led by Walter Johnson. Being younger— and shorter — than the rest of the band, a club owner bestowed the name Guitar Shorty on him, and it stuck. He cut his first single in 1957 and has been performing the blues since then. You can catch him alongside Triple Banger at Saint Rocke.

Empathy: Beneath the Surface presents a multi-disciplinary perspective on the idea of empathy and personal agency. Featuring Hung Liu, John Nava, Simphiwe Ndzube, Ami Vitale, Marisa Caichiolo, Marjorie Salvaterra and Tom Everhart. Comprised of six distinct galleries covering more than 5,000-square feet, the exhibition centers around universal themes of loss, resilience and hope. Museum visitors will encounter large-scale representational paintings, contemporary sculpture, mixed media, installation, a blue-chip virtual reality film, cinematic photography and stunning modern tapestries, navigating through each artist’s personal narrative while experiencing a collective expression of empathy and connection. “It is imperative to discuss empathy and for us to remain connected as a community, particularly as we mark the one-year anniversary of the Borderline shooting and the Woolsey wildfire,” says Lynn Farrand, curator of the exhibition. “In these artists, we see an empathic, conscious choice to go beneath the surface of what separates us to reveal the universal experiences and emotions that bind us together.” The exhibition extends CMATO’s mission to create community through the arts. In addition, CMATO has created a participatory art space for visitors to reflect on the year through the wide array of feelings they went through. Common Threads, is an interactive space where visitors will use different colored strings (‘threads’) to map out these universal feelings which cross all boundaries and bind, tie or connect us together.

We here at OMG are dedicated to the preservation and discovery of the musical arts. Exploring genres, past & present has been at the core of the band Olio, our flagship operation. Established in 1997, this unit has undergone various transformations but none more powerful and impactful than the change in 2011. With a fresh start and a clear vision the band has been non-stop with recordings, tours, videos and building their brand. With the sudden passing of co-founder/drummer/vocalist DeHaven Carrington on April 22, 2019 we honor him and continue the Olio legacy. We welcome drummer/singer Barry Chenault to the Olio family! Barry’s credits include George Clinton & P-FUNK Allstars, Gap Band and Donna Summer along with many more. We are thrilled to join forces with Barry and usher in the next chapter of the Olio party! Where most artists are satisfied with being famous, Olio will not stop until they have made a significant imprint on the music community. It’s not just about making music. It’s about fostering relationships with people and connecting in a way that creates a bond between the members of the band and fans who follow them. When you look at the fans of the legacy acts, they are still going to shows, buying limited edition boxed sets, paying hundreds or thousands of dollars for VIP meet & greets and themed cruises. You begin to understand what Olio is embarking on. Positioning themselves as the premiere support act for national headliners, whether it be spot dates, residencies or tours. The industry model has changed and success is determined in different ways, other than just having a gold or platinum album.
