Tijuana Brass tribute band at MAC in Parksville

A group dedicated to the sound and history of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass perform at the MAC on Saturday, Sept. 29.

Having performed house shows in Courtenay and Campbell River, the seven-piece tribute band will stage a two-hour show starting at 7 p.m. at the MAC (McMillan Arts Centre, 133 McMillan St., Parksville).

Herb Alpert is a jazz musician who’s trip to Tijuana, Mexico and attendance at a bull fight inspired his song The Lonley Bull in the 1960s. Gaining fame, and continuing to write songs, demand for live performances grew and Alpert put together an actual band.

Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass soon became one of the highest paid acts in showbusiness.

The tribute band peforming Sept. 29 consists of Rick Husband on guitar, Michael Eddy on keyboard, Hans Verhoeven on drums, multi-instrumentalist Grahame Edwards, Jay Havelaar on trumpet, Jake Masri on trumpet and leader of the band, and Paul Nuez on trombone.

Tickets to the concert are $20, or $18 for OCAC members.

They can be purchased at the MAC.
