SB Music Foundation Presents PAUL THORN BAND w/Bryan Titus Trio

The Lobero Theater, 33 E Canon Perdido, Santa Barbara

Paul Thorn, a standout at last years Live Oak Festival, looks forward to returning to the 805 area. There is nothing like Paul Thorn live! His performances are one of a kind, rip roaring, feel good fun. Consider yourself lucky to experience Paul and band at the best venue in Santa Barbara, The lovely Lobero Theatre.

Paul Thorn has created an innovative and impressive career, pleasing crowds with his muscular brand of roots music – bluesy, rocking and thoroughly Southern all the while speaking universal truths. Paul’s work is inspirational, sometimes eccentric but always original. Paul’s creativity and character comes from being raised in Tupelo, Mississippi, among the same spirits and some of the actual folks who nurtured the young Elvis generations before. Paul has rambled down back roads, jumped out of airplanes, worked for years in a furniture factory, battled four-time world champion boxer Roberto Duran on national TV, signed with and dropped by a major label, performed on stages with Bonnie Raitt, Mark Knopfler, Sting, and John Prine just to name a few and made some of the most emotionally, fully accessible music of our time. He’s appeared on Conan and Jimmy Kimmel Live. Paul has been showcased on NPR ona number of occasions and charted multiple times on the Billboard Top 100 and Americana Radio Charts. This year Paul is proud to release “Don’t Let the Devil Ride” which he describesas “the culmination of my whole life in music, coming back to my roots.” It marks his first time recording gospel music. Featuring guests the Blind Boys of Alabama, the McCrary Sisters, and Preservation Hall Horns. All these songs are his creation of strikingly original from the gut music. www.paulthorn.com. The Bryan Titus Trio - A local Americana/bluegrass/Roots band that perform toe-tapping melodies hearkening back to a by gone era, oh so familiar melodies that make you wanna grab your gal/guy and dance around the kitchen. Bryan's songs draw heavily on time spent hiking the Appalachian Trail. The expressive, regional music he picked up in Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, & Virginia are at the core of his lyrics. Bryan's rich vocal timbre has a smokey, soulful character like barrel aged whiskey, a perfect compliment to his elegantly primitive guitar playing and picking. The Trio is comprised of Bryan on vocals/guitar, Jeff Kranzler on Upright Bass & Dustin Janson on vocals/cajon. www.bryantitus.com

An Evening with Chris Hillman & Herb Pedersen w/ John Jorgenson

 —  —

The Lobero Theater, 33 E Canon Perdido, Santa Barbara

All proceeds to benefit www.directrelief.org, www.help-california.org & http://vcunitedway.org/ An evening with Chris Hillman & Herb Pedersen with John Jorgenson at the lovely Lobero Theatre. A message from Chris Hillman: Chris & The S.B. Music Foundation have had this concert in the works for several weeks. In light of the recent devastation in Ventura, which the Hillman's have called home for many years, Chris will donate proceeds to those affected by the Thomas Fire www.chrishillman.com Chris Hillman, a founding member of the Byrds, Flying Burrito Brothers, Manassas, and the Desert Rose Band has released Bidin’ My Time, his first studio album in more than a decade. The album, which was produced by Tom Petty, has been warmly received by critics who praise the “sharp and ruminative collection of new and old tunes by a musician whose influence far outstrips his fame.” (Stephen Deusner, Stereogum) Randy Lewis of the Los Angeles Times observes, “Bidin’ My Time contains nods to virtually every phase of Hillman’s musical life, with acoustic bluegrass, jangly folk-rock and sweet country-rock that lend a full-circle quality to the project,” while the Associated Press‘ Scott Stroud notes, “Hillman still sounds like a man in his 20s, though he is 72, and the stellar playing behind him gives the album the feel of one last Byrds record.” Bob Mehr’s profile of Hillman appears in the new issue of Mojo. He writes, “Bidin’ My Time reunites Hillman with Byrds mates Crosby and Roger McGuinn, plus various Heartbreakers. Yet, despite the guest list, it’s mostly a spare, stripped-down affair, a perfect distillation of Hillman’s sharp craft and quiet brilliance.” www.chrishillman.com
