The Tubes to headline at Cobb Mountain Daze

COBB, Calif. – Hoberg’s Spa and Resort returned to life in August with a concert celebrating the 45th anniversary of Woodstock. 

“It was a terrific start to something that’s going to continue for a very long time,” said producer Dan Nelson, “It was exciting to see the crowd having a great time – we got a glimpse of the future this weekend.”

The show, which featured the Heroes of Woodstock – Jefferson Starship, Canned Heat, Big Brother and the Holding Company, Imperial Messenger Service, Country Joe McDonald, and the Grateful Dead’s Tom Constanten – was followed on the next day by a Summer of Love show featuring Elvin Bishop, Lydia Pense and Cold Blood, and It’s a Beautiful Day.

The resort is now gearing up for Cobb Mountain Daze, on Sunday, Sept. 21, when the masters of rock and roll theater, The Tubes, will headline a show that will also include Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah, Cheating Daylight and Mystic Man Reggae.

No band has ever combined music, parody, satire and excess better than the Tubes, from “White Punks on Dope” to “Don’t Touch Me There.” A Tubes show is entertainment of the highest order, featuring vocalist Fee Waybill, guitarist Roger Steen, and drummer Prairie Prince.

San Francisco-based Lee Gallagher is a powerful vocalist and strong songwriter fronting a storming organ and guitar-driven rock band in the Hallelujah. 

Lake County’s own Cheating Daylight is full of handsome, young and talented players, strong enough to have been nominated for last year’s “Rock Artists of the Year” award at the Los Angeles Music Awards gathering. 

Mystic Man Reggae fuses Calypso, Reggae, Latin, African Highlife and other strands of world music in a way that has made Mystic Man the best-known artist of Haitian descent on the West Coast.

Cobb Mountain Daze will kick off on Saturday with a Tribute Band Day, a tribute bands concert that will delight with a combination of excellent musicianship and nostalgia for the original sounds. 

Escape (Journey Tribute), Beer Drinkers and Hell Raisers (ZZ Top Tribute), Fleetwood Masked (Fleetwood Mac Tribute), and Jett Black (Joan Jett Tribute) will make for an extraordinarily entertaining day.

Joining the music on the day’s agenda will be a rock band contest, a wine tasting, a chili cook-off, a new menu of food choices, many vendors, and Hoberg’s historical tent, which will explore the rich history of Hoberg’s and Cobb Mountain.

Doors open at noon.

Tickets for Saturday $20 in advance, $25 at the door. For Sunday, advance tickets cost $29 per person or $35 at the door. Two day passes cost $39 each in advance or $45 at the door.

Tickets can be purchased at .
