Surfrider Benefit Brings Diverse Group of Song Writers to Alcazar Theater Carpinteria

A diverse group of songwriters brought their skills to the Alcazar Theater in Carpinteria, Saturday night November 4th. The intimate acoustic evening was organized by Ones To Watch Productions, the musical promoters who have brought a wealth of Americana music to local venues in Southern California. The historic 200 seat non-profit Alcazar theater, which was recently remodeled boasts accidentally perfect acoustics, due to its architecture.

Volunteers served donated locally brewed beer and wine for $5 a glass and took bids on silent auction items like a surfboard and other surf related items.
