We are set for another night of music at Jump Cut Café (formally Lulu’s Beehive) at 13203 Ventura Blvd Studio City 91604  Nov. 10th between 6pm and 10pm.. This will be, as always, an up close and intimate performance.  Jump Cut Cafe serves awesome coffee drinks, sandwiches, soups, salads and taste treats. There will be no cover charge for this event. The line up for the night is as follows.


6pm to 6:30pm--- David Staller

What's a David Staller? He's an American original wild rockin man with a percussive acoustic sound that came about from being a frustrated drummer. His influences range from the Adolescents to Abba to AC/DC and the Bee Gees. He has recently restarted playing music since a near fatal 2009 car accident left him in a coma for 2 weeks. The question is, will he keep playing?


6:30pm to 7pm--- Barry Cullison   www.bluepower.com
Barry Cullison’s dad played a ’46 flat top Gibson and knew every Hank Williams song there was.   His mom sang harmony and played the harmonica and dulcimer.  With his two musical sisters it was tough to find a harmony part while the family sang on car trips to pass the time. He was raised country but seduced by rock and roll.  Barry has paid dues both as an actor and guitar player in Chicago, New York and now LA.  TV shows like “X Files”, “Magnificent Seven” and “Cold Case” are fun and paid the bills.  But he has a passion to play guitar and he keeps cranking out his own tunes.  He is trying to reinvent the wheel with his songs so it’s a bit difficult to put a bead on what his style is.  It can be furious and complex, political or funny.  He can tear it up or bring it down.  Barry would rather work on a song than watch TV, read a book or go to bed.  In spite of this, he and his wife Laura have a beautiful 9-year old son, Darby, and Dar likes the guitar too.


7pm to 7:30pm--- Shanna O’Brien

Shanna's career started in the ‘80s -- performing as a folk-rock artist in the Bay area.  

Her success led to opening for Journey at The Old Waldorf, recording with many of the top Bay Area bands, touring the Orient and her own show at the MGM Grand in Reno.

Shanna has recently returned to the music industry as a singer / songwriter and she is working on her second album of original music with renowned percussionist, Steve Reid.

8pm to 8:30pm--- Miranda Finn

Twelve year-old singer/songwriter Miranda Finn has been making waves ever since her original song, “Maybe I Can Change This World" was posted on youtube,  A New Jersey woman and the founder of the "Bald Barbie Facebook movement" asked to use Miranda's song as the movement's theme song to encourage Mattel to make a bald doll for kids with cancer.  Mattel has since agreed to do so.  Since then, Miranda has been featured in Santa Clarita Elite Magazine, on JLTV, on KHTS AM 1220, and in GirlsLife Magazine and she performs locally around L.A.  Her self-titled EP is available on iTunes and on her web site: www.MirandaFinn.net.  The 12-year-old singer/songwriter recently won CAP Studios “Make It Reel” contest where young artists compete to win a professional music video. Miranda’s video, “Maybe I Can Change This World” can be seen at http://www.youtube.com/user/MirandaFinn along with her other originals.

On this night, Garry will be doing a piano set with a combination of Samantha Ahboot, Lisa O'Kane, Justine Willis, and Merrily Weeber on vocals

Garry's favorite genre of music is a great song.  He has had a number of indie cuts, including with Lisa O'Kane on her critically acclaimed "It Don't Hurt" CD (the song is "Paper Thin", co-written with David Smith).  Garry is a proud founding member of Twirling Betty, a genre-defying band he formed with Justefanie Strachan in 2010.  They are currently finishing the writing, along with guitarist, Guy Arad, for their first CD.  Garry also loves to touch home with the beloved Heatseekers, who can lay down a TV/Movie theme like nobody's business.
