Glenn A Baker presents Tijuana Taxi:
A tribute to the music of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass
Friday 27 July, 8pm
Join us for an unforgettable night of entertainment, when the legendary Glenn A Baker graces our stage to host an exceptional evening of music with acclaimed Sydney band Tijuana Taxi.
Tijuana Taxi is a dapper 8 piece ensemble (with real marimba!) that evokes the mood and music of the swinging sixties, faithfully recreating 21 classics of this unique, upbeat, melodic group. They will strike chords of deep nostalgia for baby boomers as well as intrigue and delight the next generation of quality kitsch-loving younger folks. It’s music that spans all generations!
Featuring hits such as “Spanish Flea”, “Tijuana Taxi”, “The Lonely Bull” and “A Taste of Honey”, this is just the tip of the iceberg of the great body of work put out by Herb and his band.
Tijuana Taxi itself is a who’s who of Sydney’s finest latin and jazz musicians, and is led by renowned bassist Tina Harris.
Glenn A. Baker is renowned for his encyclopaedic knowledge of rock music. Described by Rolling Stone magazine Music Editor David Fricke, as: “Not just Australia’s top pop scholar but a world class rock journalist who writes with the enthusiasm of a true fan”. Glenn A. Baker is a three-time winner of the BBC’s Rock Brain of The Universe title and an author of 17 books.
