Chart-topping, pop rock band Pablo Cruise will perform in concert at the Ponte Vedra Concert Hall on Saturday, March 28, 2020.
Pablo Cruise released their first A&M album in 1975, simply entitled “Pablo Cruise”. The cover was shot in the tropical gardens of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park and it featured a huge gorilla standing front and center. David Jenkins (guitars, vocals), Cory Lerios (keyboards, vocals), Bud Cockerel (bass, vocals) and Steve Price (drums, percussion) were nowhere in sight.
There was a bit of a mystique surrounding Pablo Cruise at that point. When asked what Pablo Cruise meant, the well-rehearsed answer went something like this: “Pablo”, represents an honest, real, down to earth individual, and “Cruise” depicts his fun loving, easy going attitude towards life. In essence, that’s what Pablo Cruise music is all about. Honest, real down to earth vocals, accompanied by fun yet elegant, infectious grooves. To hear Pablo Cruise on record is one thing, but to experience the band live is an exhilarating event!
The band toured the United States, Canada and Japan extensively from 1975 to 1985. They welcomed fans to “Climb Aboard The Good Ship Pablo Cruise”. Reaching the top 10 with mega hits like “Whatcha Gonna Do When She Says Goodbye?” and “Love Will Find A Way” and several other top 20’s, the band went on to sell several million albums and singles collectively. They established themselves as well respected writers and performers within the industry as well as appearing on numerous TV shows.
Pablo Cruise became the first rock band to play a casino showroom and to grace the stage at the Grand Ole Opry. By 1985, after completing several national tours and releasing 7 studio albums in all, the band decided to take a hiatus…..one that lasted nearly 20 years. Fast forward 20 years. In 2005, a reunited Pablo Cruise picked up where they left off and today the band performs all over the U.S. and Canada.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
