One of the most influential ensembles in the history of mariachi, Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan was founded over 100 years ago in a small city near Jalisco, Mexico. More than 50 recordings later, the 13-piece ensemble brings together five generations of musicians who continue to define the sound of modern mariachi while firmly rooted in the musics rich folk tradition. Sporting ornately embroidered charro outfits, the performers of Mariachi Vargas fill the hall with the vibrant sound of strings, brass, and strident vocals, performing their own takes on traditional and popular forms like thehuasteco, waltz, popurri, polka, huapango, and cumbia.
VIP tickets include a reception and meet-and-greet at 6pm, prior to the show. ($125 tickets)
