Bitwise is a concept.
Bitwise is an energy and a force of nature.
Bitwise is a movement, a philosophy, and a dream.

As Christmas gets closer, the Reedley High Madrigals are hard at work preparing to spread Christmas cheer. This holiday season they are set to perform at Hillcrest, go caroling, and put on their annual Christmas concert at the PAT on the Reedley High Schools campus. The group is led by Randy Lepp, a talented musician himself. He can always be seen early morning on campus running around with a determined look on his face.

Early this year Bullfrogs Bar and Grill in Kingsburg was featured in the Great Food Search, where the focus was on their awesome food. This week we are focusing on them as an entertainment venue. We took some time to chat with Justin Simmons, one half of the core management staff. He shares the responsibilities of a general manager with Kourtney Vigario. They took on these roles in September of 2015 when their current GM left to pursue his own business.

If you’re looking for a place to hear some great music from here in the Valley and from all over the world, Cellar Door is the place to go in Visalia. Their website states that they are a live entertainment venue that boasts musical acts from all over the world, and by weekday the Cellar Door is an intimate lounge that makes an ideal after work spot, friendly meet up place, or happy hour hangout. They also host movie screenings, theme parties, fashion shows, and art exhibits.

With all of the great concert venues in the Valley now people no longer have to travel to Los Angeles and San Francisco to hear great music. One group that has been instrumental in bringing music to the Valley over the past eight years is Sound N Vision in Visalia. Sound N Vision is the brain child of local musician and teacher Aaron Gomes.

If you have spent any time on Facebook at all, you may have seen some promotion from a restaurant in Fresno called Eureka Burger. Quite amusingly, they post a definition for themselves on their website. It displays the word Eureka, offers the pronunciation and adds that it is an interjection. It goes on to list the word’s definition: 1) Used as an exclamation of triumph at a discovery; 2) The enlightening burger experience, accompanied by fresh ingredients, craft beer and rock n’ roll. Recently, my wife and I visited the establishment and we can report that it is exactly this.

When Cathy Lookabaugh and Tamera Williams met, synergy led to concrete action and sparks began to fly.
“We’re just a couple of crazy moms who love music and love kids,” says Cathy. “There are a million things to do in this area if you are over 21,” she continues, “but if you are young, there is nothing.” So they put their heads together and dreamed J29 Eleven into existence.

This past January a new music venue hit the scene in Fresno and it seems to be quickly growing into “the place” for concerts and events. Fulton 55 is in downtown Fresno across from the Iron Bird Café and Lofts.

Kingsburg has made way for many young musicians in the past, and while many high school bands are typically started in high school one local band, This Side of Light, had their start long before that. What was a simple performance at the very end of a sixth grade talent show, segued into a band that has been writing and performing ever since that first moment on stage.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Loomis and the Lust and seeing them perform in Fresno. KRL will be keeping an eye on this young rock band as their success continues. Their music style is old rock with a bit of CA sunshine.
