Why 805 Music Scene?

Band set up

Supporting Music Throughout the 805

The goal of the 805 Music Scene is to inspire people to support live music found within the 805 area code including Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties.  Empty venues go out of business; let’s keep their doors open and full of music lovers!
We also support those artists who provide such a valuable enhancement to our lives.  Music inspires, music makes a difference, music keeps life interesting…in short, without music, life would be dull.

Our Story

From the creator of VenturaRocks.com, the 805 Music Scene reaches beyond the borders of that special city by the sea and by popular demand expands to include all of the 805.  We are music lovers first and foremost, but more importantly we love seeing people embracing music and seeing how it affects them and if even for a short period of time, it makes them happy.

That’s why we do what we do.
