The best way to get youngsters into music? Take them to a show where they can experience the magic first hand. Kudos to Tio Leo’s for having Sunday evening events that are not only great for adults, but also allow teens, 13 and up, to take part in the fun.

On Aug. 27, the venue will host legendary rock-a-billy/Tex-Mex trio, Billy Bacon & The Forbidden Pigs, a take-no-prisoners combo, with a stage show to match their manic tunes. Perhaps best known for their classic 1988 song, “Una Mas Cerveza,” the Pigs remain at the top of their game with a show that will leave you thoroughly entertained.

Billy Bacon & The Forbidden Pigs: Sunday, Aug. 27 at Tio Leo’s, 5302 Napa St. 6 to 9 p.m. 13 and up. www.tioleos.com.

One of San Diego’s most beloved musical institutions, soul/jazz singer Jesse Davis, performs at the Kona Kai Resort on Aug. 24. A local favorite since 1965, Davis has become a legend on the British dance circuit thanks to his 1967 single, “Gonna Hang On In There Girl,” but he also has a vast repertoire of material that will thrill fans of jazz, R&B and soul. If you are a fan of classic material such as “Ebb Tide,” or “Stormy,” you’ll love every second of this master showman’s performance.

Jesse Davis: Thursday, Aug. 24 at the Kona Kai Resort, 1551 Shelter Island Drive. 6 p.m. www.resortkonakai.com.

One of the most important musicians in San Diego’s storied music history, Ron Silva, has a new band, Ron & The Reapers. It’s an all-star combo that also includes guitarists Chris Davies of the Penetrators and Pete Meisner of the Tel Tale Hearts, but the spotlight here falls squarely on bassist Silva’s gritty vocals, perfect for songs by the Stones or the Beatles. A member of ’70s R&B favorites The Crawdaddys as well as Fab Four tribute band, The Baja Bugs, his love of ’60s rock ’n’ roll clearly shines through in this band.

Ron & The Reapers: Friday, Aug. 25 at Beaumont’s, 5662 La Jolla Blvd. 9 p.m. 21 and up. www.beaumontseatery.com.

On Aug. 25, Dizzy’s will host a special tribute to prolific jazz pianist McCoy Tyner, featuring the Matt Hall Quintet. An integral part of the U.S. jazz community since he began recording circa 1958, Tyner has released dozens of albums as well as recorded with the likes of John Coltrane, George Benson, Donald Byrd and dozens of other jazz icons. Tyner hasn’t released new music since 2008, but his vast catalog of compositions will be in good hands at this show, with a talent lineup that includes trombonist Hall, alto saxophonist Christopher Hollyday, pianist Jason Shattil, bassist Mackenzie Leighton and drummer Duncan Moore.

The Matt Hall Quintet: Friday, Aug. 25, at Dizzy’s at Arias Hall, 1717 Morena Blvd. 8 p.m. $20. www.dizzysjazz.com.

Reggae fans will want to head to the 710 Beach Club on Sept. 1 for a set from up and coming singer, Leilani Wolfgramm. The Florida-based musician is currently on a West Coast tour, with significant local connections, including her 2014 single “Delay,” which featured Gonzo from local heroes, Tribal Seeds. Reggae music has been making major commercial inroads in recent years, with San Diego a particular hotbed of activity.

Leilani Wolfgramm: Friday, Sept. 1, at the 710 Beach Club, 710 Garnet Ave. 9 p.m. 21 and up. www.710bc.com.

Hard rockers won’t want to miss an appearance on Sept. 5 at Brick by Brick, from former Iron Maiden singer, Blaze Bayley. Bayley first came to prominence as the singer for British band, Wolfsbane, before securing a spot as frontman for the iconic Maiden from 1994 through 1999. He only appeared on two albums, 1995’s “The X-Factor” and 1998’s “Virtual XI,” but that’s enough to earn him a place in the heavy metal hall of fame. Although now several decades into a solo career, Bayley includes songs from his days with Iron Maiden, making this show a must for anyone who likes their rock ’n’ roll hard and fast.

Blaze Bayley: Tuesday, Sept. 5, at Brick by Brick, 1130 Buenos Ave. 8 p.m. 21 and up. $20. www.brickbybrick.com.
