Jim Messina was in three of the most iconic Americana folk rock bands of all time: Rock And Roll Hall Of Famers Buffalo Springfield, Poco and Loggins and Messina. With Buffalo Springfield Jim performed on and produced their last album featuring the Richie Furay classic “Kind Woman.” He next formed Poco with Ritchie Furay and Rusty Young and produced their first two albums including the signature song “You Better Think Twice.” Jim then went on to produce and partner with Kenny Loggins and they released nine albums amassing over 20 million record sales featuring hits Jim penned or co-wrote like “Your Mama Don’t Dance”, “My Music”, “Thinking Of You”, Angry Eyes”, and “Peace of Mind”, among others.  

For this special benefit concert for Santa Barbara’s William Sansum Diabetes Center, he will be joined by his band with special guest John McFee (The Doobie Brothers’ long-time guitarist & multi-instrumentalist) “Sittin’ In”. Expect a musical cross section of his entire career!

Jackson Gillies

Music heals! At age 3, Jackson Gillies was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes and started wearing an insulin pump at age 4. In February 2016, the San Marcos High School student, was one of 10 finalists in the Santa Barbara Teen Star USA competition at the Arlington Theatre and won. He has faced his health challenges partly through his commitment to the power of music, showing young people everywhere that the diagnosis does not have to keep them from reaching for their dreams.
