Music in Ventura

Jazz artworkWelcome to VenturaRocks.com! We're proud to be Ventura's most exclusive and dynamic online music entertainment guide. Be it live or Memorex, you'll find all things music for this amazing town featuring incredible artists and musicians. We list everything from Karaoke joints to punk shows, from down and dirty blues to some of the finest jazz around.

Here's the deal. We want to make this tow
n the next Austin or Seattle. We have so much talent and an abundance of venues to see them in. It really isn't that far-fetched. All we really needed was a one-stop reference to see what's what. We have also vowed to never charge the artists and to never charge the venues to be listed on our website.
