Surviving on a steady diet of live show chaos and fun, No Kings has shared the stage with the likes of Perro Bravo, LAW, The Ziggens, Mike Pinto, Tunnel Vision, Stranger, Ease Up, DPI, and more. After two independent EP releases, No Kings signed to Long Beach Records for the 2015 release Lowlifes & High Rollers, and are slated to have a series of releases throughout this year, starting with “Steady Yourself”, a four-song EP released in February followed by a West Coast Spring Tour in April of 2019.

Electric Waste Band - Main Stage (3:00 - 3:50)
The long-established Monday night act at Winston's Beach Club, Electric Waste Band has drawn an adoring crowd of devoted fans each and every week since 1992 — an astounding two decades and counting.
Formed way back in 1989, Electric Waste Band has entertained the local deadhead community for many years now, always to rave reviews as they serve up a staggering catalog of over 150 classic Grateful Dead songs. Improvisation is their focal point and each member is well-versed in creating magic on the fly. Every performance is a unique journey, one that pays reverent homage to the past while somehow always sounding new and fresh.
The Moneymen - Main Stage (4:20 - 5:05)
The Moneymen are a good-time southern California blues based beach-rock band.

Vocalist/harmonica player Kris Wott, hailing from Dover, Ohio is young, raw, and his powerful vocals will impress listeners young and old alike. This combined with the experience, musical passion and dedication of the band make The Moneymen a unique, authentic and crowd pleasing musical experience.
Band of Gringos - Main Stage (5:30 - 6:20)
Guitar-based power trio Band of Gringos, all born and raised in O.B., is driven by guitarist/singer Cody Sherman’s appreciation of Hendrix-and-John-Mayer-inspired guitar leads. “We’re not a reggae band like 95 percent of the bands that come out of O.B.,” says Sherman. He says he and bassist Kasey Dring soaked up their appreciation of classic rock from their parents’ vinyl collections. “Transcending generations is our goal.”
TV Broken 3rd Eye Open with Boostive - Main Stage (7:00 - 8:00)
TV Broken 3rd Eye Open is an eclectic and versatile seven piece band that fuses together a multitude of musical styles from across the world into a psychedelic explosion of sound. Equipped with didgeridoos, saxophones, sitars, guitars, world percussion, drums, bass, flutes, harmonicas, banjos, and the kitchen sink; it is a musical ensemble like no other. The band draws inspiration from a myriad of musical genres such as afro funk, jazz, psychedelic groove, Indian, folk, blues, and even spaghetti western circus cabaret. Though the band’s sound is unique in it’s own right, the TV Broken 3rd Eye Open experience also has a significant visual component. Every show involves a custom designed, state of the art, TV totem 3D projection mapping stage. The stage is composed of four 15 foot tall totem poles of broken TVs and a giant thrid eye. Stunning visuals of sacred geometry and psychedelic imagery are then projected on to the stage to combine with the music to make for a truly unique experience.

She has the rare gift to craft songs that appeal equally, but are interpreted differently by fans of diverse perspectives. This comes through in her live performances as well. A true original, 's music does not conveniently fit into any one musical genre or sub-category, but rather traces her influences in country, bluegrass, rock and folk, and emerges into a sound completely her own
The Heavy Guilt - 92107 Stage (4:30-5:30)
In a combative landscape, music is inevitably its reflection. The heavy guilt is the voice louder than the din of divisions. It's the times personified, translated into guitars and drums, driving and building. It's a melancholy moment of reflection and it's the heartfelt scream of reaction. The heavy guilt is what rock n roll intends. Revolution. Contemplation. Tomorrow.
