Grammy Winners Herb Albert and Lani Hall Performing at Egg 8/4
Herb Alpert and Lani Hall will perform at The Egg on Sunday, August 4 at 7:30 PM as part of the American Roots & Branches concert series.
Trumpeter, bandleader, and six-time Grammy winner Herb Alpert rose to fame in the 1960s with huge instrumental hits performed with the Tijuana Brass, one of the most popular bands in musical history.
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.
Lani Hall is also a Grammy winner and former lead singer of Sergio Mendes & Brasil ’66.
Backed by a jazz trio, Mr. Alpert and Ms. Hall will perform medleys of their ’60s hits, along with standards by composers from Irving Berlin to the Beatles.
Tickets to the performance are $39.50 and are currently available at The Egg Box Office at the Empire State Plaza, by telephone – 518-473-1845 or on line at www.theegg.org.
