A star-studded lineup featuring some of the Valley’s best jazz musicians gather for a tribute to Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass

A Tijuana tribute happening at the Little Red Church

Saturday, Feb. 27 at 7:30 p.m.

The Bates Beach Farm Music series continues Saturday, Feb. 27 at 7:30  p.m. with A Tribute To Herb Alpert and The Tijuana Brass, one of the most successful bands of 20th century music, selling more than 72 million albums worldwide.

Some 50 years later, the Tijuana Brass sound remains fresh today.

Take in a great evening of music and enjoy the sounds of Herb Alperts greatest hits, like Spanish Flea, The Lonely Bull and Taste of Honey, to name a few.

This band has some of the Valley’s finest musicians (Rick Husband on guitar, Michael Eddy on keyboard, Neil Clark on drums, Grahame Edwards on bass, Jake Masri and Jay Havelaar on trumpet, and Jeff Agopsowicz on trombone) and has been performing to full houses, so get your tickets early.

This music series is made possible by the generous financial support of the Obal family (Grace, Mike and Ben), owners of the beautiful Bates Beach Farm.

The Bates Beach Farm Music Series is a family-friendly venue with a fund-raising concession offering tea, coffee, soft beverages and yummy home-made style pies.

This year’s concession beneficiary is the Comox Valley Child Development Association. Sunwest RV generously matches all net profits raised at the concession.

Doors open at 7 p.m. The performance begins at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased at the door for $12.

Advance tickets are $10, available at Bop City in Courtenay and Red Carpet Boutique in Comox.
