SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – The City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department is on the search for bands to participate for their annual Concerts in the Park event.
In order to qualify, bands must submit an application to their website, be able to establish their experience playing for large crowds, deliver a 90-minute sample setlist as well as links to past performances.
