The Sunset Jam was created in January 2016 by guitarist Erik Himel to fill a void in the LA music scene. The concept of the night was to provide not only an over the top show for a non-musician crowd but to also create an environment where musicians could network, connect and be showcased. The Sunset Jam is unique in the sense that on a night to night basis musicians could be performing in front of record labels, A&R scouts, producers, songwriters, musical directors and bands seeking musicians. We accept new musicians to perform through an online submission process which allows players without major credits, but with the musicianship an opportunity to share the stage at a legacy venue alongside top touring/session players.

Since our inception in January 2016, we've featured over 1200 unique musicians including A-List touring/session musicians for acts including Beyoncé, Hilary Duff, Alicia Keys, Don Henley, The Who, The Doors, Sebastian Bach, Whitesnake, Imagine Dragons, Cee Lo Green, Rod Stewart, Jake Owen, Mumiy Troll, JES, Sabrina Carpenter, Selena Gomez, Bea Miller, Alice Cooper, Who Is Fancy, Christina Aguilera, Lifehouse, Dorothy, Alan Parsons Project, Linda Perry, Kings X, Gallant, Cher Lloyd, Edgar Winger Group, Crazytown, Puddle Of Mudd, Peter Murphy, Foreigner, Bonham, Powerman 5000, Chris Cornell, Shania Twain, Seal, Billy Idol, Filter, Smashmouth, Montrose, Matt Sorum, Slash, Rooney, Scott Weiland Band, Air Supply, The Doobie Brothers, The Voice UK/Australia/Greece, Thriller Live, Grease Live, The Allman Brothers, Sweet, Mr. Big, Quiet Riot, Daughtry, Live, Candlebox, Harry Styles, Melissa Ethridge, Cheap Trick, Skid Row, AC/DC, Leon, Rachel Platten, Bow Wow Wow, Michael Jackson, The Jacksons, The Dirty Knobs, Beth Hart, Macy Gray, Fishone, Beautiful Creatures, Nick Jonas, Black Eyed Peas, The Smithereens, Joe Perry, Shakira, Aly & AJ, Teagan & Sara, Motley Crue, Duran Duran, The Smashing Pumpkins, Jimmy Kimmell Show, Cyndi Lauper, Kelly Clarkson, Hinder, Keith Urban, Trapt, Avril Lavigne, Berlin, Modern English, Kesha, Demi Lovato and INXS.
