Beto and the Fairlanes is one of Austin’s longest-standing musical supergroups, having formed in 1976 as a dance-party-jam-band performing the compositions of Robert “Beto” Skiles”, the group’s leader and pianist. With excellent musicianship, very danceable rhythms, and a large dose of humor, Beto and the Fairlanes became enormously popular among a surprising mix of music lovers. Dancing to Beto beneath the stars at Liberty Lunch became a truly “Austin experience”. The legendary venues of that time such as “The Armadillo World Headquarters,” “Liberty Lunch” and “Soap Creek” provided the catalyst for local bands like “Beto”, Stevie Ray Vaughn”, “Asleep At The Wheel” and “Jerry Jeff Walker” to develop Austin’s own unique style and culture. This incredible hotbed of artists, in turn, inspired the creation of the groundbreaking music show “Austin City Limits”. From these fertile beginnings, the popularity of Beto and the Fairlanes continues to grow.

In 2018 they were inducted into the Austin Music Hall of Fame and were given a Star on the South Texas Walk of Fame in Corpus Christi. Robert Skiles, himself, has also been inducted into the Austin Jazz Society’s Hall of Fame.

This special December 13th show will celebrate the holiday season with the best of Beto and special guest artists.

Viva Beto!
