Jurassic 5 at Santa Barbara Bowl - July 13
Jurassic 5 was formed of six members; two DJs/Producers coupled with four distinct rappers who, when performing sequences simultaneously, was perfectly tempered, making their early releases stand above the experimental rap that was burgeoning at the time. They weren’t throwback or old school, but they embodied a nostalgic sound that was also at once fresh. Their first release, The Jurassic 5 EP, had songs like “Concrete Schoolyard” and “Jayou”, quickly turned heads to their relaxed yet detailed sound. It also contained “Lesson 6: The Lecture”, an instrumental opus that underscored the group’s deep production value. Fans worldwide became aware of J5’s dynamic stage show during this era.

Daryl Hall & John Oates at Santa Barbara Bowl 2014 - October 19
2014 is a big year for Daryl Hall and John Oates, as they just got inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Starting out as two devoted disciples of earlier soul greats, Daryl Hall & John Oates are soul survivors in their own right. They have become such musical influences on some of today’s popular artists that the September 2006 cover of Spin Magazine’s headline read: “Why Hall and Oates are the New Velvet Underground.” Their artistic fan base includes Rob Thomas, John Mayer, Brandon Flowers of the Killers, Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie and MTV’s newest hipsters Gym Class Heroes who dubbed their tour “Daryl Hall for President Tour 2007.” One of the most sampled artists today, their impact can be heard everywhere from boy band harmonies, to neo-soul to rap-rock fusion.
