Long Center Concert Club presents Beto y Los Fairlanes, Thursday, May 25 in the Rollins Studio Theatre.
Beto y Los Fairlanes began in the late 70’s as a dance-party-jam-band that mostly performed the compositions of Robert “Beto” Skiles, the group’s leader, pianist and stand up comedian. With excellent musicianship, very danceable rhythms and a large dose of humor, Beto and the Fairlanes became enormously popular among a surprising mix of music lovers. Dancing to Beto beneath the stars became a truly “Austin” experience. The legendary venues of that time such as “The Armadillo World Headquarters,” “Liberty Lunch” and “Soap Creek” provided the catalyst for local bands like “Beto”, “Stevie Ray Vaughn”, “Asleep At The Wheel” and “Jerry Jeff Walker” to develop Austin’s own unique style and culture. This incredible hot bed of artists, in turn, inspired the creation of the groundbreaking music show “Austin City Limits”. From these fertile beginnings, the popularity of Beto and the Fairlanes continues to grow. Now in their 35th year, and with their latest release, Best O Beto, they continue to delight concert audiences as well as pack the dance floor! Viva Beto!
