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 July 5th will feature live music by the Doublewide Kings. The free concert will rock the Wharf from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm. The Santa Barbara-based Doublewide Kings play a uniquely tweaked blend of original music and cover tunes that brings new passion to the familiar pleasures of rootsy rock’n’roll. Over the last decade the Kings have provided the sonic fuel for some of Santa Barbara’s finest venues, celebrations and charity galas, from headlining events for Heal the Ocean and the Santa Barbara Foodbank to kicking off last year’s Fiesta merrymaking on the main stage in De La Guerra Plaza.
If you miss the soul-edifying thrill of bold, live music, the Kings are ready to light you up again. The Doublewide Kings bring their own crafty magic to every stage they step on, and they don’t quit until band and audience have become one happy, sweaty, satisfied tribe. If you miss the soul-edifying thrill of live, bold rock’n’roll, the Kings are ready to light you up again. If you’ve never experienced that particular thrill, the Kings would be honored to show you how it’s done. Do not miss The Doublewide Kings and the Santa Barbara Symphony joining forces in November at the Granada Theatre to celebrate the music of Van Morrison.
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!
