Elton John’s “Greatest Hits Live” Featuring Brody Dolyniuk at The Cave

Jul 08, 2016 | 06:30PM – 11:30PM

Brody Dolyniuk is a multi-faceted, self-taught musician who began his professional music career playing in piano bars. A chance meeting with a pair of star-shaped sunglasses led to forming an Elton John tribute band Brody called Yellow Brick Road. Soon YBR began going outside the EJ catalog to perform other classic rock giants such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and more.Within a year, YBR was a steady working band in the Las Vegas music scene and had cultivated a large local following. YBR also became an in-demand choice for the corporate entertainment market.

After 14 years of solid work, Brody stepped down as front man for YBR to pursue other avenues, namely his role as a vocalist for Windborne Music’s touring symphony shows, singing the Music of Queen, and later The Who, Rolling Stones, U2 and Journey. Simultaneously Brody had been developing his own production called Symphonic Rockshow.

Big Bear Airport Young Eagles Program KIDS FLY FREE!

Jul 09, 2016 | 09:00AM – 12:00PM

Big Bear Airport Young Eagles Program KIDS FLY FREE!

The Young Eagles program is held at the Airport and flys on the second Saturday of each month from 9:00 a.m. to noon, May through September. This is a wonderful experience for young flyers. The Young Eagles program was started by the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) in an effort to stimulate interest in aviation for young people.

Children between the ages of 8 and 17 are offered a free airplane ride around the Big Bear area by pilots from the Pilot’s Association. Pilots must be a member of the Pilot’s Association and the EAA in order to participate in this program. We have run this program for five years and have flown thousands of children. Each child will be given a preflight review of the basics of flight and the main parts of an airplane prior to the flight.

No appointments are necessary, but each child must be accompanied by a parent or adult who must sign a release of liability for the child and can then take pictures of the happy flyer after their flight.

Jul 16, 2016 | 09:00AM – 04:00PM

The 14th annual Xeriscape Garden Tour sponsored by the Sierra Club Big Bear group is set to take place on Saturday, July 16th. Participants can begin the FREE self-guided tour anytime between 9 am and noon starting at Eminger’s Mountain Nursery, located at 41223 Big Bear Blvd. in Big Bear Lake, across the street from the Denny’s Restaurant.  Once registered, participants will have until 4:00 pm to complete the driving tour of the homes in Big Bear Valley. A tour booklet, which includes the locations of the 8 stops, a map and helpful information on gardening in the mountains, will be handed out at the starting location.

The Xeriscape Garden tour, put on by the Sierra Club Big Bear Group, is the perfect opportunity to get landscaping ideas, discover drought tolerant plants and learn how to save money on your water bill, all while creating a beautiful garden. This year’s theme focuses on education and identifying drought-tolerant and native plants with “What’s that Plant.” Volunteers at each of the featured gardens will have a plant list specific to that particular home, identifying the top ten plants to help you find the plants you would like for your garden. Plant names and a brief description will help attendees make their own plant lists with the confidence of knowing they are planting beautiful drought-tolerant plants. The plant lists will also be highlighted on the Xeriscape Website at http://bigbeargardentour.weebly.com.

The X-Tour Photo Contest will also be back this year with three categories: Plant/Flower Close-ups, People & Gardens, and Overall Garden. The top winner in each category will receive a $20 nursery gift card. More details on how to enter will be included in the tour booklet.

The tour will once again highlight the DWP’s Xeriscape Demonstration Garden on Fox Farm Road, in front of the Community Garden, with native plant expert Orchid Black on hand to answer questions. In addition to the Demonstration Garden, there will be 6 homeowner gardens, landscaped by professionals and homeowners. So no matter your budget, you’ll find solutions for creating low-maintenance, drought tolerant gardens here in Big Bear.

Music in the Mountains #3 with John Waite at the Big Bear Discovery Center

Jul 23, 2016 | 05:00PM – 10:00PM

Music in the Mountains #3 with John Waite at the Discovery Center will take place on Saturday July 23rd.

About John Waite:The ride began when Waite was tapped as bassist and lead vocalist for the Babys who rocketed to Top 20 chart positions with a pair of infectious hits, “Isn’t it Time” from the band’s sophomore LP, Broken Heart in 1977 and the monster ballad, “Every Time I Think of You” off 1978’s Head First.  From the ashes of the Baby’s, however, rose an abundant and prodigious solo career, Waite’s new greatest hits album is a thrilling snapshot representing the inspired artistic breadth of this legendary artist’s entire career tallying more than 40 years on the rock and roll highway. From re-recorded versions of signature classics, “Back on My Feet Again,” “Isn’t It Time” and “Missing You,” hard-hitting live renditions of “Head First,” “Saturday Night” and “Change” to the more introspective fare of “Suicide Life,” “Downtown” and “Bluebird Cafe”.   John Waite is a no-holds-barred rock n’ roll performer who devotes heart and soul to a live performance making sure every fan in the audience leaves the concert hall just as elated and exhausted as the band they paid to see.  He walks and rocks among us. http://www.johnwaiteworldwide.com/about-john-waite/
