Cactus Jam brings it’s fun mix of country, blues and rock and roll to Culver City’s fun original music joint The Cinema Bar on Thursday August 15th at 8 pm. Nikki O’neill opens the show at 8 pm with her amazing soulful voice and wailing guitar. Singer, songwriter and guitarist Terry Okey leads Cactus Jam and writes all the music. He takes inspiration from all forms of American music including: country, blues, folk, R&B, and rock. See video of the band here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0aGoQ0PTgX4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RjunAZvtDP0 The band features some of L.A.’s best roots players and his live show is known for being a fiery celebration of music and life. His passion for music is immediately evident onstage. His energy, always rambunctious out of the gate, then sways between mid-tempo driving songs, lilting ballads, bluesy slide tunes, and rowdy honky-tonk. Terry Okey grew up in the city of San Diego, California which has also produced top rootsy talents like Jim Croce, The Beat Farmers, and Nickel Creek. The Cinema Bar is a fun neighborhood bar with plenty of friends, drinks and music almost every night.
