Unfortunately, May 3rd Wharf Wednesday is cancelled due to rain

There’s no better view of Santa Barbara than from Stearns Wharf and there’s no better time to experience it than on Wharf Wednesdays. As a follow on to last year’s 150th Anniversary, free concerts will be on the first Wednesday in 2023, through October.

Wharf Wednesday on May 3rd will feature live music by the King Bee. The free concert will rock the Wharf from 4 pm to 6 pm.

King Bee is beloved by their loyal fanbase for their high energy sets and eclectic mix of the best dance songs from over the years spanning classic rock n’ roll, pop, blues, and Motown/R&B. Santa Barbara area club-goers have been dancing to the contagious groove of King Bee’s rock n’ roll dance music for 22 years now! Their massive repertoire draws from 7 decades of top dance hits, adding their own secret sauce to the mix playing covers by a wide range of artists from The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to Michael Jackson, Prince, David Bowie, Aretha Franklin, The Killers, and Pharrell.

Bring the kids or a date, have dinner or drinks, stroll the shops, take in the sunset and you’ve got the makings for a memorable evening. Mark your calendar now and come listen to some great music on the most picturesque stage in the world!
