Sipping Whisky Sours, Martinis, and Grasshoppers on a mid-sixites summer eve – these were the glory days of Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass.
TIJUANA TAXI is a natty 8 piece ensemble (with real marimba!) that evokes the mood and music of the swinging sixties, faithfully recreating 21 classics of this unique, upbeat, melodic group whose tunes became the backdrop for the 60’s and 70’s and will strike chords of deep nostalgia for baby boomers as well as intrigue and delight the next generation of kitsch-loving younger gen folks. It’s music that spans generations.
With hits such as “Spanish Flea”, “Tijuana Taxi”, “The Lonely Bull” and “A Taste of Honey”, this is the tip of the iceberg of the great body of work put out by Herb and his band.
TIJUANA TAXI is an entertainment experience not to miss!

Iconic performer, songwriter & Performer Stephen Cummings – took his bow to Australian audiences during his farewell tour at the start of 2019. Cummings was supposed to have retired after he finished touring his albums, ‘Prisoner of Love’, and 50 song collection, but he grew bored of the down time and decided to perform a limited number of acoustic shows from February to May 2020. There would be no more talk of stepping down! A new album of self-penned country blues would follow at the end of 2020. Cummings insists, “You will see me at the height of my powers, taking you on a wonderful spiritual journey you’ll never forget with my guitarist Sam Lemann.
Throughout the 90’s they enjoyed hits with “Green Limousine”, “Lost”, “Caroline”, “Slave”, “Barefoot Bride” “Memphis” and the Top 5 hit “The Weight” with Jimmy Barnes. That is the history.
