Ron describes how the band got together in 1994. He met the guys at the Hotel Del Coronado. They began playing together in Ron's garage. The vibe was good, the voices well suited for each other and so Ron's Garage Band was born.

Steal Dawn consists of Robert Adams (Lead and backing vocals, lead and rhythm guitars and keyboards), Andrew Frangos (Lead and rhythm guitars, and backing vocals), Jerry Schoen (Drums and percussion, backing and lead vocals), and Phil Varela (Bass, backing and lead vocals). The band typically plays more than 30-40 shows per year. That's incredible considering all four members still have full time jobs and families!

Their music style is very diverse and not the "same ole thing" that you've heard around town. STEAL DAWN prides itself on playing the best current and classic rock & roll dance music. Many times they are complimented on how much the songs sound like the original artist. That's the best compliment any band can receive! With music from Aerosmith to ZZ Top, Bon Jovi to Def Leppard, Bruno Mars to Usher, K.C. & the Sunshine Band to Muse, Lenny Kravitz to Maroon 5, and everything in between, they definitely try to play music that can please everyone in the crowd! Hope to see you at a show very soon!


The Shirthouse Band


Listen at their website!

The Shirthouse Band

The Shirthouse Bluegrass Band is a Southern California band with a Tennessee sound. Three of the members, Conley, Rob & Richard,  have roots in Virginia and Tennessee.

Always a favorite, the band has been around for about ten years and can be found at several venues around San Diego County and beyond. The guys frequent both the San Diego Bluegrass Society monthly jams and the North County Bluegrass & Folk Club meetings, as well as community fund raisers and events. The Shirthouse Band plays at various churches, as they have a strong emphasis on the bluegrass gospel musical style.

Shirthouse is made up of Rich Craig on banjo, Peter Lauterbach on mandolin/ guitar/ fiddle, Conley Robinson on guitar, Len Claesson on bass, Rob Lewallen on guitar/ mandolin and Richard Smith on Dobro, a recent addition to the band. The Shirthouse Band has an emphasis on strong vocal harmonies and frequently strays off the path of the traditional with many of their tune selections.

They have reworked songs from several genres – rock, folk, country, Irish and old Western into a bluegrass blend, and frequently sing a cappella. Selections include some original songs as well, and they’re releasing a new CD before long. Five members split up the lead vocal duties and contribute to their tight five part harmonies. 

Flathead Sixx

Flathead Sixx out of Valley Center plays a hot combination of southern and classic rock ballads that they belt out at local clubs and festivals all around San Diego County.
