Los Lobos

Tickets on sale Now!


  More than three decades have passed since Los Lobos released their debut album, Just Another Band from East L.A. Since then they’ve repeatedly disproven that title—Los Lobos isn’t “just another” anything, but rather a band that has consistently evolved artistically while never losing sight of their humble roots.
Rising up out of East L.A. comes our first ever holiday album, LLEGÓ NAVIDAD! Reinvented Christmas songs from across North, Central, South America, our very own holiday original, “Christmas And You.” read more…

World records - Elvin Bishop BandElvin Bishop Band
Part 100 of the No Stinkin’ Service Charge Blues Series!
Saturday February 8, 2020
Tickets on sale Now!



 Ever since Rock & Roll and Blues Hall Of Famer Elvin Bishop first hit the scene with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band back in 1965, he’s blazed his own musical trail. Whether he was playing raw, eye-popping blues, or penning the radio hit Fooled Around And Fell In Love, touring the world for decades delivering original, good-time countrified blues, he has always inspired his fans with his rowdy guitar playing, and witty, slice-of-life songs

Nellie McKay
Friday February 14, 2020
Tickets on sale Now!



Nellie McKay isn’t the type to offer an unthinking inducement to romance. A singer-songwriter drawn to the inherent tensions between surface and substance, she has earned her reputation for unruly drolleries. McKay accompanies herself, not only playing piano, her main instrument, but also ukulele, harmonica, celeste and even a bit of harp and cello. The form of an American noir travelogue — part Kerouac, part Chandler, all Nellie — McKay observes that “this album speaks of the night, the outsider, the plaintive wail of those lost at sea.” How’s that for a Hallmark greeting?

Friday March 6, 2020
Tickets on sale Now!



Since his Alligator debut 30 years ago, Southern blues-rock guitar wizard, vocalist and songwriter Tinsley Ellis has become a bona fide worldwide guitar hero. With his signature molten licks, melodic riffs and rousing, intense solos, Ellis, as his legions of fans will attest, is among the blues world’s best-loved, hardest working and most well-travelled statesmen. He has performed in all 50 United States as well as in Canada, Western and Eastern Europe, Australia and South America, earning legions of fans with his guitar virtuosity, passionate vocals and memorable original songs.
