Beto & The Fairlanes 40th Anniversary says
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”. 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 40 years later, and with their latest release, they continue to delight concert audiences and pack the dance floor! Vivo Beto!

This show is an Independent Artist's Project, supported in part by the Cultural Arts Division of the City of Austin Economic Development Department.

Performance at 7:00pm. For tickets, call 888.616.0522.
