  • Tapping the 'Treasure' of singer-songwriter Laura Nyro

    Tapping the 'Treasure' of singer-songwriter Laura Nyro
    Billy Childs remembers the only time he saw Laura Nyro, the influential singer and songwriter whose albums became part of the soundtrack to his boyhood. She was performing at the Strand in Redondo Beach during the mid-'90s, and for a musician who grew...
  • Smokey Robinson lights up the new Lido

    Smokey Robinson lights up the new Lido
    The venerable Lido Theatre and Smokey Robinson are nearly the same age — 75 and 74, respectively — yet the legendary Motown singer proved to be a lively, engaging and still seductive swain for what Robinson referred to as the venue's "virgin...
  • Violinist Joshua Bell opens Pacific Symphony's 'season of giants'

    Violinist Joshua Bell opens Pacific Symphony's 'season of giants'
    Pacific Symphony is billing its next go-round as the "season of giants." And, if the press is any indicator, they don't come much bigger than Joshua Bell. The violinist, who will play at the symphony's season opener Thursday, once inspired a critic to...
  • Composers have their time in spotlight

    Composers have their time in spotlight
    It's the time in a movie when most audience members take their attention off the screen — when they begin talking, checking their phones and shuffling out of the darkness. For Carl St.Clair, it's sometimes the best part of the film. The...
  • A family that plays together stays together

    A family that plays together stays together
    The Fourth of July is often a time for family gatherings, and when Glen Marhevka takes the stage with his bandmates Friday, he'll be surrounded by a group that feels like family to him. OK, maybe that sounds like the hoariest cliche in the book. But Big...
  • The Offspring to kick off concert series

    The Offspring to kick off concert series
    When Kevin "Noodles" Wasserman takes the stage on the OC Fair's opening night Friday, he may play to some audience members for whom he played a vital role in childhood. Not as lead guitarist of the Offspring. As Mr. Wasserman, the head custodian....
  • The Latest: Folk-rock 'Wounds'; a slick Attic

    The Latest: Folk-rock 'Wounds'; a slick Attic
    Wounds to Bind Jerry Burgan with Alan Rifkin Rowman & Littlefield; 209 pages I still remember the first time I heard We Five's 1965 hit "You Were On My Mind." It came on my bedroom radio when I was 8 or 9, and I quickly began taping it, mistaking...
  • An unusual musical cherished more than 'Once'

    An unusual musical cherished more than 'Once'
    In portraying a Czech pixie pianist in the Broadway musical "Once," Dani de Waal has a hard task: playing piano onstage. She has played the instrument for years but never in front of a live audience. Though she found the element particularly...
  • A new season for Midtown Men

    A new season for Midtown Men
    The Midtown Men bicker all the way to the stage — as brothers might. The singers could be arguing about which socks look best or which attorney to bring on board, and the next instant, they're straightening ties or tossing towels to one another....
  • Review: Boz Scaggs show brings house down

    Review: Boz Scaggs show brings house down
    Boz Scaggs' show Sunday at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts featured a riveting performance by a singer who galvanized the room, brought the audience to its feet and turned one of Orange County's stateliest venues into something close to a mosh pit....
  • Roger Daltrey to play the OC Fair, for charity

    Roger Daltrey to play the OC Fair, for charity
    Roger Daltrey doesn't perform at fairs. Usually, anyway. Saturday’s concert at the Pacific Amphitheatre will be his second such gig in a career spanning 50 years. The first was in Minnesota in the 1990s. The details escape him, he said — it's...
  • Tao gets fresh with Rach 3

    Tao gets fresh with Rach 3
    On a mostly listless Tuesday at the Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, Conrad Tao sat at his dressing room piano in casual street clothes and played a snippet of the world's most terrifying piece of music. The 19-year-old closed his eyes and...
