Mission Statement

Ojai Concert Series was started to support live music!! It is our desire to provide a space for great musical talent and to give our community the opportunity to experience music from all over the world. All proceeds are given to the artists after expenses for sound and hall are covered.

Kelli and Shane have been married since 1995 and live in the hills between Carpinteria and Lake Casitas. Shane is a retired carpenter and Kelli is an Occupational Therapist working in Ventura. We are volunteers with the Ojai Mardi Gras, the Santa Barbara Country Dance Society, and help organize a Burning Man musical theme camp called the MINSTREL CrAMP. Our daughter, Casara is 22 and a resent graduate of San Jose State University in International Business is moving to Seattle for a managerial position with Marriott. Teralyn, 19 is a second year student at  UC Davis majoring in Environmental Design.

We have made some wonderful friends through these shows, the Ojai Mardi Gras, and the Santa Barbara contra dance community, which has given us a strong connection to the people in this area, and a desire to be a part of what makes this such a magical place to live. We hope that our love of music, dancing, and community will help us keep the Ojai Concert Series alive and strong for many years to come.

With your help, we know we can.
