ALL SHOWS ARE SOLD OUT!

Nine-time Grammy® Award–winning music icon Herb Alpert and his wife, Grammy® Award–winning singer Lani Hall, have announced their fall US concert tour called, “In the Mood.”

“They have it all – a contemporary look, infinite sound and sex appeal,” said New York’s Times Square Chronicle. Alpert and Hall will be joined by their long–time band, Michael Shapiro (drums), Bill Cantos (keyboards) and Hussain Jiffry (bass).

The couple will perform, their unique way of presenting songs, from their new album “In The Mood,” set to be released this fall, in addition to songs from last year’s Grammy–winning album “Steppin Out.” Also, within the set will be a selection of Brasilian songs and a Tijuana Brass Medley.

“Few people can claim to be a Renaissance man in this complex age, but Herb Alpert might be one of them,” says The New York Times. He is a platinum–selling musician, songwriter, record producer, visual artist and philanthropist. He is perhaps best known for his string of sensational, popular music hits in the 1960s with the Tijuana Brass and co–founded, with Jerry Moss, A&M Records, one of the most successful independent record labels in music history.

“Lani Hall is a charismatic singer with a controlled passion and a point of view evident in her deliveries,” says Cabaret Scenes magazine. Born and raised in Chicago, Hall is internationally celebrated for her emotional vocal interpretations as well as singing the 1983 James Bond film theme, “Never Say Never Again.” Hall was the lead singer for Sergio Mendes’s iconic group, Brasil ’66 and won a Grammy® Award for Best Latin Pop Performance for her album “Es Facil Amar” in 1986. She is also a lyricist and author of “Emotional Memoirs & Short Stories,” a collection of fiction and non–fiction primarily set in Chicago. The audio book will be released this fall.
