Jamisen Jarvis

Jamisen Jarvis has had a knack to entertain since before she could talk. Being born and raised in Hermosa Beach has provided the perfect backdrop for her song writing, where she has drawn from her life lessons and point of view and placed them into her music. Awarded “2016 Artist of the Month” at Saint Rocke as well as “2017 SAND and STRAND Magazine’s Artist of the Month”, Jamisen’s star is on the rise. 
  The PettyBreakers
5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Petty and the Breakers

The PettyBreakers is the nation’s premier “Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers” tribute act. Based out of Southern California, this band accurately recreates the sights, sounds and concert experience of a Tom Petty concert. All the classics… American Girl…Break Down… Free Fallin’… Mary Jane’s Last Dance…Refugee… Runnin’ Down a Dream… and so many more... perfectly reproduced. Playing to packed houses all over the U.S., the band is comprised of excellent musicians who have performed and recorded with international artists. The PettyBreakers were chosen to perform on AXS TV’s “The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands,” honoring the music of this legendary American icon.
