A towering figure in American music, trumpeter, composer and producer, Alpert achieved worldwide fame with his Tijuana Brass project, whose songs remain part of the public consciousness today. The nine-time Grammy winner and co-founder of A&M Records has earned five No. 1 hits, 15 Gold albums, 14 Platinum albums and has sold more than 72 million records.

Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass propelled his sound into the pop music limelight, at one point outselling the Beatles two to one. In 1966, they achieved the since-unmatched feat of simultaneously having four albums in the Top 10 and five in the Top 20. Alpert also has the distinction of being the only artist who has had a No. 1 instrumental and a No. 1 vocal single.

Alpert will perform alongside vocalist, musical partner and his wife Lani Hall – a two-time Grammy Award-winning vocalist and producer. Hall started her career in 1966 as the lead singer of Sergio Mendes’s breakthrough group, Brasil ’66. Hall has the distinction of recording more than 22 albums in three different languages (English, Portuguese and Spanish), and in 1983, she sang the title song for the James Bond film, Never Say Never Again.

Since 2006, Hall and Alpert have been touring with their band to sell-out performances. Hall, Alpert and their incredible band perform an eclectic mix of American standards, Brazilian jazz, some Beatles and classic Tijuana Brass and Brazil ’66 songs. The show also includes a large video wall that displays hundreds of classic photos, videos and memorabilia from Hall and Alpert’s legendary music careers.
