Hartt & Soul Productions Presents: Benefitting One World
Beto and the Fairlanes Merry Texmas
Show Time : 7:00 PM
Beto and the Fairlanes, one of Austin’s longest standing musical super groups, began in 1976 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 at Liberty Lunch became a truly ‘‘Austin experience,’ and 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. Do not miss your holiday favorites done ‘Beto Style.’ Vivo Beto!
