Sounds like San Diego VIII
The eighth edition of Sounds Like San Diego, will once again feature some of today’s top local artists performing their takes on songs made famous by artists from San Diego, 1960 – Today. The evening also includes appearances by some of the original musicians, performing their classics, with music historian Bart Mendoza giving commentary on the area’s rich musical history throughout.

Sounds Like San Diego VIII’s song selections will include music from Iron Butterfly, The Cascades, Switchfoot, Jack Tempchin, David Gates, JJ Cale, Ratt and more!

For this show there will be three themes running through the fast paced show, with singer-songwriters, musical pioneers and sixties soul all part of the mix of sounds. This year’s performers are:

Jesse Davis : The legendary Northern soul singer will sing his 1967 classic “Gonna Hang On In There Girl.”

The Dinettes: This pioneering all female bands’ first show in 37 years! The Dinettes helped set the template indie rockers follow today. The night includes original members Doriot Lair, Sue Delguidice, Joyce Rooks and Irene Liberatore (Dolan).

Wayne Riker: Author and guitarist (jazz and blues a specialty), winner of the 2017 San Diego Music Awards Lifetime Achievement trophy.

Manual Scan demos to be released

A collection of Manual Scan demos, recorded in 1981, will be released in Europe later this year. Plans are being worked out, but a 7" vinyl EP with at least six tracks is the most likely case. One of the tracks, "What Did You Say?" was previously released from the original seven track demo as a bonus track on Manual Scan's "All Night Stand" collection in Spain, but this release will be remixed from the master tapes.
