Description

Best known as bandleader of The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Doc Severinsen brings The San Miguel Five performing “El Ritmo de la Vida” as part of the Society for the Performing Arts’ Cinco de Mayo celebration. This ensemble came together not long after Severinsen moved to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, in 2006. With Severinsen’s soaring trumpet sounds blended with the music of classical guitarist Gil Gutierrez and violinist Pedro Cartas, this electrifying experience features classical Spanish music with a jazz flair and includes gorgeous Latino and American ballads, some great movie music and the popular gypsy jazz of Django Reinhardt.

The event is part of the CenterPoint Energy Music Series.
