Must Hear

He may be having a bit of trouble getting venue’s to spell his name correctly, but there can be no doubt that Rob Bondurant is one of San Diego’s rising stars. Appearing on Nov. 23 at Beaumont’s, Bondurant is a rare find, capable of turning out winning originals, as well as confident covers, ranging from standards to modern favorites like the Black Keys and Bruno Mars. Blessed with a smoky, evocative voice and crowd-pleasing stage presence, a performance by Bondurant is a great way to either kick off the weekend or simply get the party started.
