Early in our first season, we got “advise” from musicians we have known and respected for years, telling us about an artist who was headed our way and we needed to grab him on the way by. “FREEBO is headed your way and you need to have him at your house concert series.” Really, we received emails from LA, San Francisco and locally telling us about this guy with the funny name and the great music. What could we do? We booked Freebo, along with Jim Photoglo, for our second concert ever and we were not sure what it was going to be like. We vaguely knew of Freebo, as the bass player with Bonnie Raitt and John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers; who also played the tuba.

Well, he did not play the tuba or the bass that night. But the songs and guitar licks we heard that evening really became the benchmark for our series for years to come. Freebo is a genuine folk, rock and blues icon who, after over 40 years of recording and touring with many of the great artists of our time, is regarded as one of the most gifted singer-songwriters of today. Recognized as the “Best Folk Artist 2007” by the Los Angeles Music Awards, Freebo is the only artist to grace our home who has also appeared on Saturday Night Live, The Muppet Show and in concert with the legendary Spinal Tap.

His compassionate concern for the world and people around him, as evidenced both in his lyrics and his open stage banter, has helped Freebo connect with listeners worldwide. And no one else alive can balance this introspection along with hooking his audience into singing “My Dog Has Fleas” along with him…and loving it.

Freebo will take us from insights about what kind of positive mark we hope to leave on the world upon our own passing with Standing Ovation to where you stand with your pets and your partner with She Loves My Dog More Than Me. A musical evening with our friend Freebo will be astute, insightful, cleaver, and truly melodic. Please join us on Saturday, February 6.
