The Ocean Blue in Concert, Phoenix, AZ, July 27, 2019

Last year my brother Michael and I saw The Ocean Blue in concert in Phoenix, AZ. And what can I say other than the show was absolutely amazing. The band was on point, the music was incredible, the night couldn't have been better. We decided to do the VIP pass which meant we got early access to the show, got to listen to a few extra songs with a much smaller crowd, we met the entire band and actually got to hang out with them for about an hour or so before the show started. It was absolutely awesome. And the band was great, meeting them was surreal, they are all super nice guys and seemed to really enjoy meeting all their fans. I took a few pictures and shot some video and put them up on my Google Photos which you can check them all out by clicking on this link here:


Here's just a few shots I grabbed of the show. And I just want to say thanks to Dave, Oed, Bobby and Peter for the great performance, the great music and for taking the time to play your songs and meet your fans. The crowd couldn't get enough and I know it meant so much to a lot of us to get to meet you all and see you play that night. Looking forward to another great show in November 2020!

Ocean Blue Tribute CD - Record Yourself Playing Ocean Blue Songs

This is your chance to let your talent shine!  Pick up your guitar, keyboards, or whatever instrument you play, and record yourself jamming to your favorite Ocean Blue tune!  I'll post them here for everyone to listen to.  Can't sing?  Who cares!  Can't really play?  No problem!  I sit around my house all day long strumming Ocean  Blue songs, and I know many of you do the same.  So that's why I decided to start this cover song list to get other people excited about doing a TOB cover!  Not only that, but if I can get enough participation, all the songs
submitted will be compiled into an Ocean Blue Tribute CD.  Haven't you always wanted an Ocean Blue Tribute CD?  Wouldn't you love to actually be on the tribute CD?  Send your songs my way! 

I know some of you fans are in bands and actually do real Ocean Blue covers.  Those would be absolutely great for the CD.  I've got plenty of server room and a ton of bandwidth to kill.  Send me an email at the above email address with your cover and I'll post it right away for all to hear. I look forward to hearing everyone's songs, as I'm sure you all are too.  

When you've decided on a song, just let me know and I'll include it in the list below.  This is just so we don't get twelve versions of one song.   Otherwise send any song you won't mind having everyone else listen to.  Have fun!

Mercury Lounge Live MP3's

The Ocean Blue live during the CMJ Music Marathon at the Mercury Lounge, in New York City on October 19, 2000.  I wasn't sure if anyone had already done this or not, but I had no idea that this show was online until yesterday, so I figured if I was out of the loop enough to miss it, maybe many of you were too.  So enjoy the show!  Click here for some demi-decent CD sleeves I threw together to go in your jewel case.  The album artwork should automatically show up if you import into iTunes.  I also noticed something interesting about one of our favorite songs in this list.  I remember once reading where Dave said that Denmark is actually Either/Or played backwards.  Sure enough the chords in each song are identical but in reverse order.  But that's not what he meant, he really meant that if you actually play Denmark backwards, you will hear Either/Or.  Check it out if you don't believe me.  Pretty crazy stuff isn't it?

New Tabs and New Renditions of Old Tabs

I ran across a web site last week called www.guitaretab.com and was impressed to find very good guitar tabs of Ocean Blue songs amongst their pages.   So I emailed the author of these tabs to see if I could host them on this web site and he graciously agreed.   So with one brand new song never been tabbed before and three oldies but goodies, here they are.  All these tabs are courtesy of Reggie Peratrovich.  Thanks Reggie!

I've Sung One Too Many Songs...
Drifting Falling

These new tabs are noted above was v2 below the other tabs.  Harlequin and Ways & Means are two  new tabs that I did just recently.  So don't forget to check those out too!

Riverside Guitar Tabs
This news is for all you Riverside fans out there.  I've made another guitar site and can you guess who it's dedicated to?  That's right, it's all Riverside.  I've tabbed out the first half of 'One' with plans to finish the album within the next couple of weeks.  I was originally going to release the site after I'd finished the whole album, but I got anxious, so I thought I'd give everyone a sneak peak and reveal it now.  I hope you enjoy!

A New Look for the Web Site

Boredom has once again reared its ugly head and the result was I created a new look for The Ocean Blue Guitar Page.  Same info, same tabs, just a new overall look for the web site.   I haven't been working on too many new songs lately, I know I've been a slacker.  But until The Ocean Blue decides to do a few shows in the western states, I'm on guitar tabbing strike.  ;-)  The legend for this site is as follows:  blue fonts are completed tabs, orange fonts are active hyperlinks, gray fonts are tabs you've already been to, and white fonts are tabs yet to be written.  Thanks for your continuing support!  Oh yeah, this site has permanently moved to www.danmarx.org/tob so please (for the last time, I promise) update your bookmarx.  Thanks!

The Ocean Blue Guitar Guestbook
I finally broke down and decided to get one of those free guestbooks for this page.  So please feel free to drop in and sign it.  Let us know what songs you just love playing on your guitar the most!  *Due to spamming, the guestbook has been removed completely.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

New Arrivals & Corrections

After Reuben saw TOB live last month, he wrote me and said Dan, Cake is played on the 4th fret and Garden Song on the 2nd!  Figure 'em out!  So I took the challenge and can now present you with one more officially tabbed Ocean Blue song.  I know you're all going to love this one.  It is quite simple to learn and has that genuine TOB sound.  Enjoy!

Either/Or - 05.06.01 Corrected Chords!
Garden Song - 04.08.01 Corrected with Capo 
Cake - 04.08.01
