Dave Mason


Tickets are now on sale to the general public for two performances by Dave Mason in our indoor Carriage House Theatre on Wednesday, May 23 and Thursday, May 24

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and founding member of the legendary band Traffic, Mason’s illustrious career includes penning one of the most enduring rock anthems of all time -- “Feelin’ Alright” -- and playing guitar on some of rock’s greatest tracks, including Jimi Hendrix’s “Electric Ladyland.” Today, his talent remains as impressive as his legacy. On this tour, "The Very Best of Dave Mason," he'll be performing a selection of his hit songs and fan favorites

Be sure to add the VIP Experience to get exclusive access to the pre-show sound check, enjoy a meet & greet, get a photo with Dave Mason, and more!

Rub Elbows with Your Favorite Performer
Keiko Matsui and the Worsencrofts

Last week, Montalvo presented a sold-out holiday show called Tidings of Jazz & Joy by international jazz stars Keiko Matsui and Euge Groove. It was an unforgettable experience for all in attendance, but especially memorable for two of our Montalvo donors. 

As exclusive sponsors of Tidings of Jazz & Joy, the couple (who prefer to remain anonymous) hosted an intimate reception in the historic Villa prior to the show with 14 of their closest friends. Guests enjoyed wine, hors d'oeuvres, and got to mingle with Keiko and Euge. The group also enjoyed complimentary VIP parking and sat in the first row at the concert.

Concert sponsorships are available for Carriage House shows in 2018 at various levels. Review the schedule of who's coming by clicking on the button below, and if you find a concert you'd like to help underwrite, contact Emma Moon, Development Director, at 408-961-5841 or
