09/22/2019 - Music: Herb Alpert and Lani Hall
Trumpeter Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass band garnered six Grammy's, remained in Billboard's Top 10 for 81 consecutive weeks, and have nearly 30 discs recognized as gold or platinum for their work in the arts.

In his 60 years of experience as a musician he has collaborated with hundreds of high profile artists, and been featured at events like the Superbowl and the Olympics.

Take the chance to witness a living legend in brass performance.

Lani has the distinction of recording more than 22 albums in three different languages, four alongside her husband, and in 1983 she sang the title song for the James Bond film, "Never Say Never Again."

In 1986 Hall earned her first Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop Performance for her album, "Es Facil Amar".

Her second Grammy was as a producer of Herb Alpert's "Steppin' Out" album that was awarded in January 2014.

After establishing a successful solo career in music and becoming a wife and mother, Lani began to explore new creative outlets for her writing.

"Emotional Memoirs & Short Stories" is her first book.
