John Sebastian to perform in Juneau Sunday

Musician John Sebastian, a former member of 1960s-era band The Lovin’ Spoonful, will perform in Juneau on Sunday, Oct 11 at 7 p.m. at the Juneau Arts & Culture Center. His performance will be presented by the Juneau Arts & Humanities Council as part of its 2015-2016 concert season.

Singer songwriter Sebastian is best known for his work with The Lovin’ Spoonful, and his concert repertoire includes songs from the band’s catalogue such as “Do You Believe in Magic,”, “Younger Girl,” and “Darlin’ Be Home Soon”. However, since leaving the band Sebastian has had an active solo career, and has continued to write and perform music influenced by traditional folk and blues. He has also been involved in music for films (most notably Francis Ford Coppola’s “You’re A Big Boy Now” and Woody Allen’s “What’s Up Tiger Lily”), Broadway, and TV, including the theme song for “Welcome Back Kotter.”

He was inducted into the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 and recently was the subject of a PBS special “Do You Believe In Magic: The Music of John Sebastian.”
