Pablo Cruise: Friday, June 28, 2019 at 8 pm


What’s in the name? For the guys in the hit 70’s disco-rock group Pablo Cruise it’s a philosophical mindset and attitude: ” Pablo ” represents a down-to-earth individual and “Cruise” stands for a fun-loving, easy-going style. Their classic hits include Whatcha Gonna Do When She Says Goodbye?,” “Love will find a way,” “A Place in the Sun” and “I go to Rio.”

With fame and followers, they toured the world in concert for 10 years and made appearances on shows  They were the first rock band to perform in the Grande Ole Opry.

Since the core group of David, Steve and Cory reunited in 2005, they’ve released two live CDs and have added more energy with the talents of Larry Antonio (bass, vocals) and Robbie Wykoff (vocals, percussion). In this revitalized formation, the music of Pablo Cruise remains true with honest, straight-forward vocals and fun, elegant, infectious grooves.

Pablo Cruise achieved some measure of success during the latter part of the ’70s with their mellow, easygoing California pop. The band was formed in 1973 by former members of Stoneground and It’s a Beautiful Day: guitarist Dave Jenkins, keyboardist Cory Lerios, bassist Bud Cockrell, and drummer Steve Price. The group was praised for its compositional and instrumental skill on the albums Pablo Cruise and Lifeline and was rewarded with the Top Ten hit “Whatcha Gonna Do?” in 1977 from A Place in the SunCockrell left and was replaced by former Santana bassist Bruce DayWorlds Away went platinum, as did its predecessor, and produced three hit singles, including the Top Ten “Love Will Find a Way.”
Several Pablo Cruise songs were used as soundtrack material for sports programs on ABC, CBS, and NBC, and the band’s work also appeared in the films Free Ride, An Unmarried Woman, and Dreamer.
