TIJUANA TAXI brings to life the glorious sound of Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass, the unique, upbeat, and melodic sensation of the swinging Sixties. This stylish 8-piece ensemble evokes the sound and mood of the time, delivering a killer set of 21 classic tunes, faithfully recreated with joy, humour and heart.

Hits such as ‘Spanish Flea’, ‘Tijuana Taxi’, ‘A Taste of Honey’, ‘Zorba The Greek’, ‘The Lonely Bull’, ‘Casino Royale’, and ‘I’m Getting Sentimental Over You’, are just the tip of the iceberg of the great body of work put out by Herb and his band.

TIJUANA TAXI, led by bassist Tina Harris, and comprised of Sydney’s finest musicians, is two trumpets, trombone, marimba/percussion, bass, drums, guitar and keyboards. They have been delighting packed houses at Camelot since its launch in 2015.

The music of The Tijuana Brass will strike chords of deep nostalgia for baby boomers as well as intrigue and delight the next generations of kitsch-loving younger gen folks. It’s a sublime, kooky and especially joyful night out.
