John Safari

President / Co Founder

John is the President and Co-Founder of OCML. Seeing a hole in what was once a great music scene, John was tired of watching bands get exploited to play to an empty room. After promoting for a few clubs, he threw his first concert at the Tiki Bar in Costa Mesa. Kevin happened to show up to enjoy the show, and he ended up helping run the show. The two collaborated on a string of shows until they decided to start Orange County Music League. Combining forces their first show as OCML was a Toy Drive for Orangewood Children’s Home, witch is now a yearly event. You can connect with John on Facebook and follow him on Instagram.
