May 5: Mexican bolero trio, Trio Los Panchos

The World-Renowned Mexican Bolero Trio. Last season, the Brava Theater Center drew over 5,000 people from all over the Bay Area to 16 sold-out concerts of Trio Los Panchos, the most celebrated trio in the Spanish-speaking world. With exquisite renditions of such classics as Sin Ti, Rayito de Luna, and Contigo Aprendi, their crystalline voices and heartbreaking harmonies, coupled with Gaby Vargas’ masterful requito, create an unforgettably romantic evening for all ages. This May, Trio Los Panchos will perform 4 shows over the Cinco de Mayo weekend.

Formed in 1944 in New York City by Mexican musicians, Jesus “Chucho” Navarro Moreno and Alfredo “El Guero” Gil, and Puerto Rican Hernando Aviles, the original trio took to the stage of the Hispanic Theater, calling themselves, “Trio Los Panchos.” Taking their name from the famous Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa, Trio Los Panchos boasts almost 40 years, 2,500 songs, and over 200 albums, including several recordings with Eydie Gorme in the 1960’s.

Tony Lindsay former lead vocalist for SANTANA

Plus Carmen Milagro, Ray Uribes (Vibe Tribe), Rafael Ramirez (Safari), Rich Armstrong (Michelle Shocked), Atma Anur (Journey), Jara Queeto (Blue Bone Express) and Rolando Morales (Los Lobos) make up this extraordinary Latin band called MILAGRO. Not your typical salsa or Latin rock band, MILAGRO has created a show and a musical style that is sophisticated and warm, yet at times, edgy and sensual. Their performances are extremely pleasing to the musical palate with songs in both Spanish and English, sexy originals and traditional covers that focus on romance, melody and harmony that stir emotions and inspire you to dance or sing. "She's the female Luis Miguel...women love her because she sings songs about love and nurturing our children, ideals that reflect their own souls and men love her because, well they do"... All you need to know as an audience about MILAGRO is that they are quite simply THE BEST!”
