Helping Fundraise for another great cause...The ShobeFest...

The ShobeFest is a music 
festival that just had its 
22nd year of wonderful 
acoustic music from 
around the world on 9/27.
Started by Mike Shobe, 
(pronounced "Show-Bee")
an acoustic aficionado from 
Santa Barbara, Mike put 
together festivals with 
Bruce Dragge, Chili Dave 
and Liz & B.D. in Santa 
Barbara, Carpinteria and Ojai. 
Hani Naser Band

They have included multiple 
Grammy winners and local 
favorites who donate their 
time and talents freely to 
keep the festival strumming 
year after year... Shobe brought 
attention to acoustic music on 
the central coast long before 
"Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?"
Mike passed away in 2011, but 
his musical legacy lives on. As 
he used to say, "Sounds Good!" 
Honeysuckle Possums

Peace, Love, Music and 
Understanding are the words 
of the day and Dave's Chili and 
Paella fed the troops as talent 
from around the world took 
the stage for a foot stompin' 
good time...
Lefty and the Aces

The line up...

A happy Shobefester...

Jumping at the opportunity to 
help raise money for a great 
cause, I am honored to have 
created the image for this year's 
t-shirt. Since there is no charge 
to attend, annual support is 
generated with the help of 
imaginative designs by well 
known local artists. 
A big fan of Hope & Justin...

Something about the ShobeFest gets people sweet...

The "Air Uke" design raised a 
lot of money for the event as 
festival goers made generous 
contributions towards their 
favorite t-shirts, sweat shirts 
and tote bags.

Thank you to everyone involved
in this year's ShobeFest, and to 
those who came to enjoy and 
reminisce about past Fests... to
NewbieFesters and especially 
to Earthtrine Farm for the blessed 
venue. "Sounded good!"
Thank you BD & Liz for your generosity...!
