Creator and innovator, musician and producer, artist, and philanthropist, Herb Alpert is a man with a profound passion.

Born in Los Angeles, the future trumpeter came of age in a house filled with music. At the age of eight, he was drawn to the trumpet in a music appreciation class in his elementary school.

“I was very fortunate that I had that exposure to music and was encouraged to stick with it. Years ago, when the arts programs were cut out of our public schools, so many kids stopped having that kind of opportunity.”

A legendary trumpet player, Alpert’s extraordinary musicianship has earned him five #1 hits, nine GRAMMY® Awards, the latest from his 2014 album, “Steppin’ Out,” fifteen Gold albums, fourteen Platinum albums and has sold over 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. Herb Alpert also has the distinction of being the only artist who has had a #1 instrumental and vocal single.

Some of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass’ fourteen Top 40 singles include; The Lonely Bull, Mexican Shuffle, Spanish Flea and the GRAMMY®-winners “A Taste Of Honey” and “What Now My Love,” and the #1 hits “This Guy’s In Love With You” and “Rise.” Shout! Factory recently released deluxe re-masters of the entire TJB catalogue plus Lost Treasures, a compilation of vintage rarities, and Rewhipped, featuring hot remixes of every track from Whipped Cream & Other Delights. In all, Alpert has recorded over thirty albums and produced for many other artists, including Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66, Stan Getz, Michel Colombier, Gato Barbieri, and Alpert’s wife, GRAMMY winning vocalist Lani Hall, to name a few.

Lani Hall
Grammy Award-winning vocalist and producer, Lani Hall started her singing career in 1966, as the lead singer of Sergio Mendes’s break through group, Brasil ’66. She left behind her city roots in Chicago and, for 5 years, performed throughout the world. While Lani’s singing career took her on the road, she also focused on her writing—committing to the page her personal impressions of the world around her. Sergio Mendes further expanded her writing career by asking Lani to write the English lyrics for many of the band’s Brazilian songs.

    Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass albums and album covers have been the soundtrack to my best friend and I’s friendship for the last 14 years. We both grew up on his sound and then bonded early through our mutual adoration of his iconic sound and visual identity. It would be a tremendous experience getting to see him live.

    Thank you.

    Hdrb Alpert is part of the soundtrack of my childhood.

    My dad grew was a high school friend of Herb Alpert’s and I’ve been a fan of his music for years. My dad died nearly five years ago. Hearing Herb Alpert’s music will bring back memories of him.

    I grew up in a household where classical music played from morning until night. My father was and still is an aficionado – it’s like he couldn’t be awake without hearing it. The only exception was Herb Alpert, whose music we all loved like a family treasure. A Touch of Honey virtually defines who I was as a child, and hearing it now sends me to the moon. I have never heard Alpert live, and doing so would be a immense joy and honor.

    I grew up listening to Herb Alpert, my grandmother was a huge fan and owned every album. Going to this show would be a great remembrance of my grandmother and the fun we had listening and dancing to his music.

    My freshman year dorm room walls were decorated in nothing but Heb Alpert LP covers.

    Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass were some of the very first albums I ever owned and helped shape my musical tastes and sensibilities, but I’ve never been able to see him perform live. Would love to have that opportunity.

    As a child in L.A. In the 60’s, my parents’ favorite albums were Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, and Sergio Mendes and Brasil ’66. I have the best memories of our family dancing to the songs of these groups.

  24. Crystal January 19, 2017 at 9:38 pm #

    My grandma introduced me to Herb Alpert many years ago. It’s not the type of music I typically come across on a regular day, so the memories would be a warm welcome in these dark days.

  25. Diana January 19, 2017 at 10:31 pm #

    I want to take my boyfriend out for a jazz night!

  26. Laurie A Gallinat January 19, 2017 at 11:15 pm #

    Sweet. My parents bought me my first Herb Alpert album when I first started playing trumpet in grade school but never seen him. This would be rad

    Heard an interview with Herb. Interesting guy.

  29. shaylene January 22, 2017 at 3:00 pm #

    Is it sad that I’ve never heard of him? Or, if I have but forgot then it would be a awesome refresher of my missing memory. I’d enjoy going and hearing some new music.

  30. marco January 26, 2017 at 4:24 pm #

    I need this.. and if your winner drops out — I’ll go and enjoy it. In fact, I did that two years ago at the same venue.
