Over the past 50 years I have performed in venues of all types and sizes with my band Steppenwolf. The most memorable of these are places with a unique atmosphere; Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall in London and the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville to name a few.
In my opinion, even those iconic performance halls don’t have the special magic of the Lobero Theatre.
The Lobero’s history, the loving care of its staff and dedicated volunteers, and unwavering support from the community–not to mention its excellent acoustics and atmosphere–make it a rare gem.
I know I’m preaching to the choir, but as a person who joined this community just a few years ago, I became aware of the Lobero’s appeal gradually. Every evening I’ve spent enjoying a performance or observing the cozy interaction between audience members has opened my eyes to the Lobero’s unique charm.
It is incumbent upon us to continue to support and preserve our prized possession. These are deeply troubling times with health and safety of utmost concern, and many in our community are enduring hardship and adversity. Therefore, I believe it’s up to those of us who are blessed with some available funds to continue–as many of us have in the past–to support the Lobero with our donations.
The time will come when the Lobero will reopen and welcome all of us back into its warm embrace. The Lobero Theatre’s fiscal year is soon coming to an end and contributions are needed. Let us do our part to assure that when that time comes we can appreciate and enjoy its unique magic more than ever before. Please consider lending a hand at this time, every donation will help sustain our priceless Lobero. And if you can’t, please know how much your past support has meant as we look forward to a season of renewed optimism ahead.
