A small Santa Cruz band that grew into a world force, the Doobie Brothers, play their first local gig in 20 years to headline the Santa Cruz Blues Festival's 20th anniversary on Memorial Day weekend, Saturday and Sunday May 26 and 27.
The festival started by bringing in strictly blues artists from Chicago and Texas, but has broadened its scope into American roots music of various kinds.
Tickets are $65 for lawn space and $110 for gold-circle chairs for one-day, or $120 and $200 for two-days. Children under 12 are $25 for one day or $40 for two. Children 6 and under are free.
