Al Di Meola Poster

Al Di Meola

September 22, 2017

Goodness gracious great frets of fire! Al Di Meola is once again hitting the road and bringing his flaming licks and lightning fast fretwork to the stage on the Elegant Gypsy 40th Anniversary Tour. A veritable classic, the 1977 album explores Latin music like flamenco, pushing the boundaries of electric and acoustic guitar with a breakneck-speed fusion of jazz and rock.

Gillian Welch Poster

Gillian Welch

October 3, 2017

Gillian Welch has been playing her stripped down, darkly-hued music for over two decades now, and is one of the respected American folk artists alive. Blending bluegrass and Americana, Welch's lyrics deal in revenge and murder, and sound like they've been beamed in straight from the 1930s.

Michael Carbonaro

October 19, 2017

Prepare to be amazed by Michael Carbonaro! The Carbonaro Effect star is heading out on tour, giving audiences a chance to see his mixture of sleight of hand, performance art and illusions up close. One of the rising stars on the magic scene, Carbonaro is as much a prankster at heart as an illusionist, injecting plenty of wit and fun into his tricks.

The elegant Balboa Theatre has seen many uses over the years, from movie theater to housing for the US Navy during WWII. Beginning in the 1980s, the building was closed for twenty years and threatened with demolition, until a multi-million dollar renovation reopened it as a community arts center and theater space in 2008. It now hosts dozens of concerts and comedians every year.
