  • Robert Renzoni Vineyards, Temecula
  • Free

The group with the longest local residency is the psychedically inspired Electric Waste Band, which has been appearing at Winstons in O.B. every Monday night since 1992, with a 23rd Anniversary party planned for February 23. Among the busiest bands, Americana/folk rock duo 22 Kings usually has around two dozen upcoming shows listed, taking place at venues from Santee to La Mesa, Rancho San Diego, Temecula, and Fallbrook. Their next performances are February 14 at Hooley’s La Mesa and February 15 at Renzoni Vineyards in Temecula.

Past Event

Gilbert Castellanos Weekly Jazz Jam

  • Wednesday, February 18, 2015, 9 p.m.
  • Seven Grand, 3054 University Avenue, San Diego
Past Event

Gilbert & Lorraine Castellanos

  • Saturday, February 14, 2015, 7 p.m.
  • Croce's Park West, 2760 Fifth Avenue, San Diego

The busiest individuals include Robin Henkel, who performs around town several times each week as a solo act and with Whitney Shay and Billy Watson (as well as bringing in the occasional horn section). Gilbert Castellanos has weekly jazz jams at North Park’s Seven Grand, as well as appearing regularly at Croce’s, where he also periodically presents his “Young Lions” series, introducing local up-and-comers, and at venues such as Dizzy’s and the Westgate Hotel.

As far as playing in the most bands at one time, Rob Crow seems to have handed that crown over to Alfred Howard, currently listed on the roster of five different bands: Midnight Pine, Heavy Guilt, K23 Orchestra, Black Sands, and Rebecca Jade & the Cold Fact. The longest-lived local band appears to be West Coast Iron Works, formed in Coronado and extant since the early 1960s.

Among the bands that played the most local shows in 2014, Adrienne Nims & Spirit Wind are clear contenders, though the duo of Kenny Eng and Rob Deez are also managing to play out multiple times each week, as does the mulit-genre multi-instrumentalist Joe Cardillo.

Additional database data: For live shows, rock is the genre staged most often, averaging around 200 rock bands and performers each week, followed by folk and acoustic acts (around 100 weekly) and then jazz ensembles (at least 40 per week).
