San Diego’s Hullabaloo has been making music for kids and families for 20 years, performing its own brand of foot-stomping, wing-flapping, free-range, organic kid folk at large festivals across the United States and tiny backyard parties in their own hometown.
To celebrate their 20th anniversary, the band will perform 20 shows in 20 days at 20 different San Diego area venues, kicking off with a solo show by Steve Denyes on Monday, February 5 at 10:30 a.m. at Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego, 2300 Expedition Way, La Jolla, CA.
Each show in the eries will be a benefit concert for the charity Feeding San Diego, which rescues food that would otherwise be left to spoil and provides it to people in need.
Hullabaloo will also release its 15th album, Live from Sun Studio on February 23. Going all the way back to Hullabaloo’s first album 20 years ago, people have compared the band’s sound to Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, and Carl Perkins. Those artists, and a handful of others that had a big influence on Hullabaloo’s music, all got their start at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee. So, when it came time to celebrate their 20th year of performing together, Hullabaloo went straight to the source and recorded a live album at Sun Studio. Live from Sun Studio will be available as a free, digital-only release at major online outlets.
