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 August 2nd will feature live music by Tequila Mockingbird. The free concert will rock the Wharf from 6 pm to 8 pm. Tequila Mockingbird is a Santa Barbara-based rock band that has been performing around the area for many years. They specialize in dishing up their own signature interpretation of the best classic and modern rock, blues, funk and groove to the delight of all who enjoy high-energy live music. The vocal styling of lead singer Bob McDermott is a constant, as well as the thumping groove of bass player Jim Giles. With drummer Steve (Stevie Thunder) Timm, and the extraordinary guitar work of Pete Wolf, they have settled into a rock solid group that locals can count on for a good time to be had by all. You do not want to miss this edition of Wharf Wednesdays.
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!
