SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the DP Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.

Lovers of jazz, blues and rock and roll flocked to Doheny State Beach last weekend for the 19th annual Doheny Blues Festival. The two-day festival took place May 21-22 and featured a wide array of artists playing on three stages—the intimate Backporch stage, Sailor Jerry stage and Doheny main stage. Dozens of artists performed throughout the weekend, including Lynyrd Skynyrd, Brian Setzer’s Rockabilly Riot, Aaron Neville and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
Next year marks the festival’s 20th anniversary.
