The sleepy little town of Carpinteria, California was treated to an exceptional concert by legendary singer-songwriter and Banjo aficionado John McEuen. One of the founding members of The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, McEuen brought his new group, the String Wizards to the historic Alcazar Theatre on a cold winter night, February, 13th.
In the wake of California’s largest wildfire in modern history, Carpinteria’s own Dishwalla played a sold-out concert at the Alcazar Theatre. Formerly known as the Carpinteria Plaza Playhouse Theater, the gem of a venue, with accidental perfect acoustics has returned to its original name, Alcazar Theatre. Carpinteria Community Theatre Inc. who runs the venue renamed the theater based on its regional name.
