In the summer of 2016 Allison and Scott de Hart, both full time teachers and mountain residents, decided to begin performing at a local coffee shop on weekends. Word spread, the duo became known as Little Bear Valley Blues, named after the historic name given to the area today known as Lake Arrowhead, "Little Bear Valley."
As news traveled, Little Bear Valley Blues began to be seen and heard as regulars at the Lake Arrowhead Resort & Spa, The Lake Front Tap Room, and the Tudor House.
In the Fall of 2017 Little Bear Valley Blues expanded to allow for occasions and venues requesting a full band. Our most recent addition (2019) is our close friend Paul Castellano as a regular bass guitarist, joining us for trios and full band gigs. Paul and his wife Benita have been the godparents to LBVB from the earliest days and we are so glad to have him as part of the family!
Today Little Bear Valley Blues is available to play smaller and more quaint venues wishing only the acoustic duo of Allison and Scott as well as the larger stages and outdoor events requiring a full band.
