Impossible Tour

A one-of-a-kind mash-up of classical, hip hop, rock and R&B with a message, the classically-trained string duo Black Violin – Kev Marcus (violin) and Wil B (viola) – fuses the sounds of today with classical virtuosity. Or, in the words of Black Violin, “It’s a party, man.” Adding DJ SPS and drummer Nat Stokes to the lineup, the group has collaborated with the likes of Kanye West, 50 Cent, Aretha Franklin and Tom Petty. They’re bringing their chart-topping, genre-bending, stereotype-busting sound on the Impossible Tour, proving that there are no limits to what we can achieve, regardless of circumstance.

Tickets may also be available from UCSB Arts & Lectures at (805) 893-3535 or online through their website.

Jon Batiste and Stay Human
Friday, May 1, 2020, 8:00pm
Presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures
Back by Popular Demand!

With his “virtuoso chops and capacious personality” (The Boston Globe), Jon Batiste “whips up excitement” (The Wall Street Journal) as the leader of the rip-roaring jazz-roots collective Stay Human, igniting the music world – and your TV – as Late Night with Stephen Colbert’s house band. The Juilliard-trained jazz and R&B multi-instrumentalist has forged his own artistic path, from his particular brand of New Orleans-infused funk and pop to his eloquent solo album Hollywood Africans. Following his life-affirming Santa Barbara debut last season Batiste is back with the full force of his band, pounding the keys in a high-octane night of pure musical joy.

Tickets may also be available from UCSB Arts & Lectures at (805) 893-3535 or online through their website.
