After a seven-year hiatus, the Doheny Days Music Festival is coming back to Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, and Laguna Beach dentist/musician Ken Garcia is on board. The two-day festival last appeared in 2004, reportedly having grown a bit too big and wild for the low-key beach venue, according to Garcia. The big music festival may have outgrown its locale, but "everybody missed it and wanted to bring it back," Garcia said. "We're trying to bring back the surf and beach styles, with good family bands," Garcia added.

We have more art festivals than we know what to do with. We have fancy food festivals, world-class theater, legendary surf competitions and dozens of other Laguna Beach events. But no festival for popular music. Little Dana Point, only slightly bigger than Laguna, has two major festivals - Doheny Days and the Blues Festival - along with several other smaller events. The lineups are stellar with bands like Weezer, Ben Harper, Cake, Ziggy Marley and Donavon Frankenreiter.

Young at heart. Irreverent. A riot. These are some descriptions that pop up when Common Sense comes to mind. What's even better is their own tag: "Six-year-olds in big person's bodies. " As the band members primped for a photo shoot outside Jean Paul's Goodies in Laguna Beach, guitarist Billy Sherman said, "Suck your belly in!" Lead singer Nick Hernandez, of Laguna Beach, puckered up in response. The fun began at UC Santa Barbara in 1986, and although four of the original five members have departed, the spirit is intact among musicians who consider each other brothers and have a blast every time they meet - be it at a performance, while surfing or over coffee.
