The iconic Santa Barbara Bowl (SBBowl) is in the midst of an exciting summer concert series. On June 11, the famed band Boston takes the stage, promising to evoke “More Than a Feeling” to bowl-goers. Following Boston is the homecoming of the now-famed Isla Vista reggae band Rebelution on June 18. Dirty Heads & Soja perform July 13 to jam out more reggae tunes among the foothills of the Riviera. On July 17 and 18, witness the return of Jack Johnson, UCSB alumnus and soft-rock legend. Slightly Stoopid performs on July 23 with the group’s unique blending of genres, followed by Young the Giant on August 25.
Also performing during the summer months are La Arrolladora Banda el Limon (June 9), Empire of the Sun (June 10), Bishop Briggs (June 10), Blondie & Garbage (July 7), Natalie Merchant (July 15), Diana Krall (August 6) and Bryan Ferry (August 19), among countless accompanying special guests.
