If singer-songwriter Colin Hay, (most famous as the frontman for Australian 80s hitmakers Men at Work) ever has to give up music, he could easily have a career in standup comedy. The feisty veteran pop star displayed his devilish wit with a Scottish twist at his opening concert on his latest solo tour. The sold-out show at the historic Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara on February 27th featured songs from the prolific songwriters' long and storied career.
Hot Tuna continued their 50th-anniversary tour, which they began last year with a stop at the historic Lobero Theatre in Santa Barbara. The midweek show on February 19th featured an opening set by the iconic David Bromberg and his quartet. Both bands have made numerous appearances at the Lobero over the years, including past shows together, so it was no surprise that the event was a sellout.
One of Santa Barbara’s most successful homegrown bands returned to touring, playing the first of two sold-out nights at the historic Lobero Theater on January 30th. Toad the Wet Sprocket's show was packed with family, friends, and local fans of the band resulting in a sea of shoutouts throughout the evening.
Arlo Guthrie returned to Santa Barbara’s historic Lobero Theater to play a sold-out concert on Tuesday, March 19th.

This year’s concert celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Alice’s Restaurant movie and featured three distinctive sets of music.
