Renowned electronic production duo Thievery Corporation takes the stage at the Greek, hot off the release of their seventh studio album, Saudade. Constantly evolving their sound, with a wide range of influences that includes Jamaican dub reggae, punk, vintage film soundtracks and psychedelic space rock, Thievery Corporation embraces their bossa nova roots on their latest CD, trading the fiery energy of their last two albums for the more laid-back mood of the Brazilian genre. The duo is famous for the carnival-esque atmosphere of their live shows, often bringing out over a dozen musicians and vocalists to jam with. And with Grammy winner Stephen "Ragga" Marley opening, it's sure to be a great night of music. Learn More

Oh, the Gipsy Kings. You are one of my favorite. The Greek Theater was packed for this performance where you played many of your newer songs. The romance was in the air. The night lovely. As I arrived about 30 minutes late, I was disappointed there was no opening band, but did learn the Greek cuts off at 10:15. Stacked parking was a bit difficult to get to that one HAS to come early to the Greek. Met a nice lady when I gave her a free ticket. Had a good time overall.
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.
