The Lobero Theatre Associates presents

The 2018 Hats Off Evening Honoring Songwriting Hall-of-Famer Jeff Barry


Wednesday, May 2 at 6:00pm


El Paseo Restaurant

Hats Off is the Lobero Theatre Associates’ signature fundraising event that raises needed funds for the Lobero Theatre while honoring a significant presence in the arts.  This year the Associates tip their hat to one of the most successful and celebrated songwriters of the modern era, Jeff Barry.

It is said that at any given time, somewhere in the world, someone is playing or singing a Jeff Barry song. While you may not know Jeff Barry by name, there’s no doubt you’re familiar with his extensive body of work.

Jeff Barry is the musical mind behind chart-topping hits including: “Tell Laura I Love Her,” “Chapel of Love,” “Be My Baby,” “Doo Wah Ditty,” “River Deep, Mountain High,” “Sugar Sugar,” “And Then He Kissed Me,” “Da Do Run Run,” and “The Leader Of The Pack,” among many others. His songs have been recorded by an endless list of artists, such as Celine Dion, U2, Percy Sledge, Elton John, Amy Winehouse, The Beach Boys, Glenn Campbell, Mariah Carey, Sam Cook and Johnny Mathis.

Mr. Barry was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1991, and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2010. Rolling Stone Magazine has proclaimed him to be #19 in their “Top 100 Songwriters of All Time” list, and #3 of non-artist writers. 

Proceeds from this enlightening luncheon will support general operating funds for the Lobero Theatre and new, energy-efficient lighting systems.

To make a gift or inquire about sponsorship opportunities, please reach out to Sheila Caldwell at or at 805.679.6013.

Special Thanks to this year’s Hats Off co-chairs, Joan Crossland and Janet McCann.
