Event Description

The Blue Water Music Festival Concert Series is a presentation of the most talented original artists from Southern California and beyond. 

In downtown Laguna Beach, a Frisbee's throw from the ocean, there's an innocuous steel door with a discreet sign that says "BC Space." Open that door, climb a steep, narrow stairway to a large, bright entryway lined with artwork. Continue into a large open area, the combined studio/entertainment/performance area. Enter this "secret space" grab a beer, wine... then find a perch so you can sway with the rhythms... 

TICKETS: $20 for General Admission / $35 for VIP (VIP Includes: Preferred Seating, 2 drink tickets and a Meet & Greet.) 

Matinee 2-4PM:

Evening Show 7-9PM: Purchase here!

Note: An additional Friday show may be added from 7-9:00PM, if both Saturday shows sell out.

DETAILS: This all acoustic “Swamp Operetta” is a play in the musical theatre variety. The “Tall Tale” is centered on the life experiences of the Blues Musician, Laurence Douglas Miner and his small group of cohorts as spun in the first person by the “Storyteller” in the Here & Now. 

Staged on a sharecropper’s cabin during Depression-era Louisiana continuing through the War Years and into the 1960’s, the tales are told and the original songs are sung by a cast of seven in period costume who play out the “Tale” with their dialogue from the There & Then… By the time the lightnin’ strikes, one is hard-pressed to tell whether the tales were true, half-true, or just out’n out lies.

Standing ovations and rave reviews continue to propel this production to Sold-out performances EVERYWHERE!! RESERVATIONS ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“There’s concept and then there’s follow-through…and when it comes to musical-act-meets-theatrical-performance, you can’t help but be impressed by the efforts of the Black Tongued Bells music. In their original stage production you’ll hear what’s been described as ‘Electrified jug-band-blues sauce with a Waitsain twist’, see if your life is changed in a backwoods way forever.”- Los Angeles City Beat

“This is an exceptionally special entertainment event—there is nothing quite like it anywhere—a class act all the way…deserves the attention of audiences everywhere” -Jana Pendragon, KXLU 88.9FM

“A juke joint-style amalgam of song, story, hootin’ and hollerin”- Mindy Farabee, Los Angeles Times


“If the Rolling Stones grew up on Louisiana, they’d probably sound just like us”- D Miner
