Welcome to the "Ocean Blues", an energetic but relaxed sound to hang out with. Established in 2009, band leader Venetia Phillips gathered her fellow Venice Beach locals to join her on a regular weekend gig at a local VB hotspot. Some bluesy, funky, jazzy moments were born!
All of the members have spent many years on the Venice Beach Street scene, the Los Angeles music circuit, and tours for various musicians. Come enjoy the sound that emerges from Tony's years in the reggae scene, Greg's expertise with country blues, Reggie's jazz sensitivity, and Venetia's swingin' horn.
California is known for taking old ideas to new places. Ocean Blues introduces the "California Blues" sound. It's all about the energy!
