The weather was clear but got a little chilly as the evening wore on. I've learned to take a lap blanket to cover my legs. .

Way overrated..

We used to enjoy listening to this group and were looking forward for the event.

Unfortunately we found it to be nothing but noise, we also had bad seats, and there was little, if any, help from the staff.

Now every time we...continued

Husband and I see them every year. Who can resist the Spanish guitar. ( I know I know they are from south of France ) Performance is always superb and the Greek is the perfect venue. Bring a sweater it can get a bit chilly.

Description

Twenty-five years is an eternity in pop music, but the story of the Gipsy Kings reaches back much farther. Theirs is a music that extends through generations, to the sounds of their ancestors, and reflects the eclectic and peripatetic history of the gitanos, Spanish Romani people who fled the Catalonia region during the Spanish Civil War. The group’s unchanging roster consists of two bands of brothers—the Reyes (Nicolas, Canut, Paul, Patchai, and Andre) and the Baliardos (Tonino, Paco, and Diego). The father of the Reyes brothers, Jose Reyes, formed a celebrated flamenco duo with Manitas de Plata which counted the likes of Miles Davis and Pablo Picasso among its fans. When the pair parted ways, Reyes became even more popular after starting his own band, backed up by his sons and called Los Reyes.

Venue Rules: No cameras (any type), no recording devices, no laser pointers, no alcohol, no drugs, no cans, no bottles, no portable T.V.s, no weapons, no picnic baskets, no ice chests or backpacks.
