American Idol Season Five Semi-Finalist William Makar Creates Energy in Cast & Plow’s Lounge Every Thursday Evening While the Victor Torres Duo Enhances the waterfront restaurant’s Sunday Brunch

Set amongst an iconic backdrop filled with luxury yachts and sparkling waters, The Ritz-Carlton, Marina del Rey has added live music to its popular farm-to-table restaurant, Cast & Plow.

Since its opening in early 2014, Cast & Plow has gained valuable recognition, specializing in community-made, locally sustainable cuisine. With outdoor fire pit tables that capture the iconic California sunset, the restaurant has become the ideal gathering place for locals as well as its hotel guests.

Now, showcasing live music twice a week, Cast & Plow will be enhancing The Ritz-Carlton experience even further.

“The talented, passionate musicians, the fresh, inspired food, the delicious wine and the friendly faces of the ladies and gentlemen combine for a unique, rich and distinctive sense of well-being for all who visit,” explains Director of Operations, Andrew Roberts.

Every Thursday evening from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m., former American Idol finalist William “Will” Makar performs classics from Stevie Wonder to Maroon 5 in the Cast & Plow Lobby Lounge. Makar became a fan favorite when he performed the Jackson 5 hit, “I Want You Back” on the fifth season of the popular television show when he was just 16 years old. After leaving American Idol, Makar signed to Double Deal Brand Records and has opened for John Mayer, Lee Brice and Hot Chelle Rae.

Every Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Victor Torres Duo plays soothing notes from the Spanish guitar that entice diners to dance to some of the popular flamenco songs. Torres and his counterpart, Jose Prieto, are part of a band named Calé that plays in various establishments in Costa Mesa and Glendale.
