    James Durbin is known for giving metal a chance on Season 10 of “American Idol” and pushing to keep rock alive on his 2011 debut, Memories Of A Beautiful Disaster. But, this Santa Cruz, California-born and bred vocal powerhouse was raised on oldies and boys bands, and his repertoire as since expanded to include new styles of music. Durbin's first album was built on, he says, “frustration, anxiety and excitement,” while his new endeavor is, “more about a celebration of life and music.” In other words, you can expect the best of both worlds when he performs live on the Canyon stage. Doors 6pm. Show 9:00pm. Desert Dragon opening set on at 8:00pm $20 / $25 + applicable fees Call 818-879-5016 to confirm your dinner reservation.

    Jack Russell’s Great White The Southern California blues/hard rock band Great White first took a bite out of the rock scene in 1984 and since then has achieved worldwide success, encompassing sales of over six million records. They received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance for the song "Once Bitten, Twice Shy" and earned a double platinum certification for the album “…Twice Shy”. The late 80's were boom years for the band, marked by non-stop touring with some of the biggest bands of the era and playing also in Europe and Japan. Great White also recorded “Hooked”, which was certified gold and “Psycho City”. The soulful, blues-based signature sound, that turned songs like "Face The Day", "Rock Me" and "Save Your Love" into international hits, can also be found in the band's newer material. Doors open at 6:00pm. Opening Set Desert Dragon on at 7:00 pm
