A cooler venue for this summer’s hot shows!
A message from Lobero Board president Jeff DeVine
It’s summertime at the Lobero, and I’m looking forward to spending some warm summer evenings on the new Esplanade, enjoying a cool drink before a great show. With performers like Richard Thompson, Marshall Crenshaw and the Bottle Rockets on the lineup, the Lobero LIVE season is off to a great start.
We are excited to welcome back the Music Academy of the West for performances by members of their Festival Orchestra, and Opera Scenes featuring some of the genre’s most beloved moments. And of course we can always count on Sings Like Hell to present “the greatest music you’ve never heard.”
Recent renovations to the theatre will make each of these summer performances even more enjoyable. The Esplanade gives us a safe and comfortable place to meet before the show with guests and friends. New seats provide better sight lines and more legroom. Enlarged restrooms mean the intermissions run smoother with much shorter wait times. And of course, a state-of-the-art air conditioning system keeps the climate cool when weather is warm, the house is full, and the audience is rocking out.
The incredible entertainment doesn’t stop as summer winds down. Be sure to keep an eye on all that’s happening at the Lobero in the coming season. We will be announcing a new jazz series, presenting prominent female artists in “A Woman’s Voice” series, and much more. Local favorites like the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, CAMA Masterseries, Santa Barbara Revels, Santa Barbara Choral Society, and the Santa Barbara International Film Festival will throw in a few surprises along the way. Sign up for our e-newsletter to be the first to hear about all the latest news and events.
In the meantime, sit back and enjoy this special edition of BACKSTAGE at the Lobero.
