Zoot Suit Riot is an exciting theatrical big band party that evokes the spirit of the historical Chicano cultural revolution that shook L.A. in the 1940s. Capturing the post-WWII era's highly-charged, trend-setting swing music, energetic dancing and wildly colorful style, the show features popular songs from '90s swing revivalist bands like Cherry Poppin' Daddies ("Zoot Suit Riot") and Royal Crown Revue ("Hey! Pachuco!"), inspired by the era's combination of outrageously cool style and demands for social change. Learn More

Everything was awesome I would recommend seeing them whenever you get another chance. Too bad that this appears to be their only appearance in the western half of the USA this year. The concert actually was at 6pm instead of 8pm which Goldstar contacted me by phone and email earlier in the day allowing us to choose between a refund and still seeing the concert. We were glad that the concert was earlier since it was on a Sunday. Kudos to Goldstar for customer service.
A musical institution, Blood Sweat & Tears has left an indelible mark on the American music scene since 1968. One of the greatest horn bands in the history of popular music, BS&T’s alumni roster reads like a Who’s Who of the world’s greatest jazz and rock musicians.
As BS&T has evolved through the years, it has maintained its commitment to high standards by including in its current roster the most talented musicians available.
Starting out in Greenwich Village in New York, the band won world-wide acclaim, becoming the first in many categories: first band to tour behind the Iron Curtain, first band to have 3 hit singles from the same record, first band to combine rock with jazz and of course Sunday night at Woodstock.
Racking up sales in the millions, BS&T earned multiple gold albums, 10 Grammy nominations and won 3 Grammy Awards, including the most prestigious of them all, Album of the Year.
