Straight from Ve­gas: Jerry López and Friends

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Jerry López grew up in Santa Fe, per­form­ing mu­sic as a kid with his brother, Gil­bert, in the 1960s. The young boys gar­nered a fan base be­fore they were even old enough to at­tend school and were pro­fes­sional record­ing artists by their teens. In the 1970s, look­ing to broaden their mu­si­cal reper­toire and au­di­ence, the broth­ers moved to Las Ve­gas, Ne­vada, where to­day Jerry López is a mem­ber of Santa Fe and the Fat City Horns. He has per­formed with Glo­ria Estefan, Car­los San­tana, and Ricky Martin. Jerry López and Friends play their pop­u­lar brand of New Mexico, Latino, and Chi­cano mu­sic at the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Fran­cisco St.) on Fri­day, Sept. 25, at 7:30 p.m. The con­cert is a ben­e­fit for the Josie Tor­ralba Romero Schol­ar­ship Fund of the Na­tional Latino Be­hav­ioral Health As­so­ci­a­tion. Tick­ets, $20 to $50, are avail­able by call­ing 505-988-1234 or vis­it­ing www.tick­etssantafe.org.
