Lalo Guerrero Tribute at Jazzville Palm Springs

About this Event

JAZZVILLE✨presents a tribute to the legendary Lalo Guerrero with an 8-piece band! Lalo was a Mexican-American guitarist, singer and farm labor activist best known for his strong influence on today's Latin musical artists. This incredible evening will feature music from Lalo's early Cha Cha and Mambo days to some of his biggest Latin hits in both Spanish and English. His son, Mark Guerrero, will be a guest musician in the show.

Eduardo "Lalo" Guerrero Jr. (1916–2005) is known as the father of Chicano music. His career began in the 1930s, contributing to most of the new developments in Mexican-American music in the southwestern United States.

Early in his career, Guerrero composed romantic songs that became successful on both sides of the U.S.-Mexican border. He recorded big-band swing and music in tropical dance styles. During and after World War II his music played a central role in the Latino youth culture of the Los Angeles area. He recorded a series of hit Spanish language parodies of Anglo-American pop songs, and he wrote and sang topical corrido ballads until very late in his life.

Arizona mariachi musician José Ronstadt told the Arizona Daily Star that Guerrero "was really an incredible man…. To me the most interesting phenomenon about Lalo Guerrero was that different generations knew Lalo through his different expressions of music."

Doors open at 5:30pm with a 7 pm showtime. Dinner and drinks served throughout the show. No minimum. We encourage you to arrive early for dining to help minimize server activity and noise during the live show.
