Our CD, Tijuana Road Trip, features an assortment of non-Tijuana Brass songs arranged in a style reminiscent of the TJB’s very distinctive 1960s sound. The tunes come from many places… They run the gamut from TV’s Secret Agent Man to the sultry Caminhos Cruzados, with stops in between on Broadway and at the movies, and the worlds of pop and jazz.

Available for sale from CD Baby!

If you're looking for something a bit off the beaten path for your special event, we may be just the thing. We offer a unique sound and a friendly, professional attitude. If you’re a fan of Herb Alpert’s legendary Tijuana Brass, you’ll know that it's great party music... fun, festive, brassy, retro, but not too loud, and appealing to all ages. Into that mix we sprinkle a dash of other South-of-the-Border flavors, especially the quiet sophistication of the Brazilian bossa nova.

Please consider us for one of your events! See our Guestbook section for reaction from some of our past audience members and visitors to our website. We have been honored to play at various public and private venues in the Washington, DC area, including the Arlington Arts Al Fresco Summer concert series, the Bethesda Urban Partnership Summer Concert series, Exxon-Mobil headquarters, St. Mary’s County Woman’s Club concert series, the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage, the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and others.

We hope you find our site interesting and informative, and please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
