Crestline, CA.
  Well, our season at Shields Cafe in Indio has ended due to the summer heat but we hope to return as we have every year in the Fall. Many thanks to all who came out to hear us and support us and the wonderful venue, restaurant, and staff/management/ownership at Shields Cafe.
  As Mountain residents (Crestline) we always look forward to this season when we return to the lakeside patio at Papagayos in Lake Arrowhead. We have been so appreciative to have played indoors every other Saturday during the off season; now back to the lake patio on Sundays 1-5pm, every other week beginning May 15.
  We are also excited to announce we will be performing for the Crestline Farmers Market in July as well as the annual Jamboree Days Fireworks Concert at Lake Gregory. We are also in contact with the good folks at the Chamber about the Cork and Hops dates for our Trio.
  Our schedule is updated on this webpage as well as in the previously mentioned social media pages we have.
All our love,
Allison and Scott de Hart

Alexander DeHart has joined Little Bear Valley  Blues for summer gigs since 2018 and is a Tulsa native. His leads are electrifying and it is a true pleasure to have him as a guest lead guitarist.

Mike Tuten & Shannon Young

Mike Tuten & Shannon Young appeared with LBVB almost from the very start when Allison & Scott starting playing as a full band. 

Sadly, in Dec. 2020 we lost our brother Mike to an aggressive cancer. We are heartbroken and LBVB will always hold Mike's memory. Shannon has since moved to be with family and remains our forever little sister and 2nd vocalist.

Mike Defusco is the son of a highly regarded Jazz guitarist (Louis Defusco) and stand up Jazz Bassist (Estelle Defusco). Mike and Scott began performing together in 1976 when they formed their first band. Mike is a full time video engineer specialist in the movie industry, post production.

Mike plays lead guitar and bass, backing vocals, and often brings his daughter & son to assist with vocals and percussion. A musical family!
