5th anniversaryof the Proof Bar Santa Anna OC Gallery art show

When 3 partners opened Proof in February 18, 2006, they had no idea what they were doing and even less idea of what they were getting into.,
We just knew that an opportunity to open a new bar in a new location had not been available in the county for over 25 years, 
so we jumped headfirst. We originally had hopes that Proof would be a lounge-style conversational bar that saw host to things like acid-jazz quartets and experimental live performances. 
A place where you meet up for a chat and a drink. The term “DJ” was not on our minds and dancing, well dancing is a different story altogether.

I had my First Photography show there, and have been invited back for there 5th  Anniversary  thank you Joe looking forward to it ,plus will have some new photography on view ,

This party will be 2 events rolled into one. From 6-10pm we will be running the "THANK YOU" drink special, providing entertainment, hosting a fine art photography art show, AND we have hired the infamous Dos Chinos gourmet food truck to give out "free" tacos for all of our guests. Repeat, we will be buying our guests tacos from 6-10pm or until they run out of tacos or we run out of money. You will receive vouchers for tacos inside the bar. AND THEN, From 10pm-3am, we're gonna turn the volume up and keep it going into the after hours. We're switching on a killer light display & hosting 8 different world-class professional DJs who will each play different styles of music but are guaranteed to take you places you've never been before. Vinyl and digital. House, funk, disco, electro, 80s, punk, hip-hop, dub, reggae, oldschool, rock, indie, obscure. You name it. They got it. Come early! Stay late! Just don't bring the kids because this party is for adults only. As every other night of the year we are strictly 21 and over. We will stop serving alcohol at 1:30am and start asking you for your beverages at around 1:45am. ALL ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGES MUST BE OUT OF EVERYONES HAND BY 2:00am. NO EXCEPTIONS. Bottled water will be provided free of cost but we will not allow any glassware or bottle of beer to remain out. We are a bar and we very much respect the license which we've been given to dispense alcohol to the public for sale. Please let us or any of our staff know if you would like a cab or driver arranged for you ahead of time. This will be a party not to miss.
