Here is a message from Kenny!

It’s actually two anniversaries in one:

Good Cop Bad Cop played its very first gig ever, Sept 13, 2003. So, Sept 16, 2023 is our 20th Anniversary celebration.

Also, GCBC’s first gig was at Hinano! So, Sept 16 is also GCBC’s 20th anniversary playing Hinano.
GCBC has done over 250 performances at Hinano, over 950 in all, including Abbot Kinney Fest, 8 “pandemic relief” concerts on the beach, 12 events for Live Nation, military events, municipal & community events- and hundreds of events for local businesses and residents, including numerous fans and homeys.

If Good Cop Bad Cop has made you happy and touched your soul anytime over the last 20 years, we’d love to share this night with you.

“Mark your calendar for Sept. 16th, set a reminder, tell your best-est friends and y’all come feel good.”

Here is a message from Hinano Cafe:  

We’ve been serving world-famous burgers and cold beers just steps from the Venice Beach pier since 1962. Notorious for being Jim Morrison’s favorite Venice hangout. 

Hinano is that rare local bar for people from all over the world. It’s also a cool place to duck into out of the sun…and then stay till the wee hours. We have a good selection of beer on tap served in frosty mugs and pitchers or in icy bottles. 

Three pool tables, free popcorn, a great jukebox and full college and NFL cable sports package (and plenty of screens) make Hinano Cafe a good time just waiting to happen.
