Anyone who lives in Ventura County or spends any time here should follow the Ventura Rocks-Website; we are blessed with some amazing musical talent here, from the "Ones To Watch" series and folks as well-known as Grant-Lee Phillips and Nathan McEuen (just to mention two) at Zoeyscafe Ventura, to internationally-known acts at the Majestic Ventura Theatre and the Ventura Hillsides concerts. You will find the other 99% I left out at Ventura Rocks.
