Artist / Program Description:
Once a member of the legendary Mexican trio Los Tres Ases (from 1960 to 1966), Gustavo Lopez (b. 1938) is one of the last remaining authentic voices of the golden years of "bolero romantico." Whether with only his voice and guitar or as a member of a trio, his performances are engaging, entertaining, and full of the first-hand knowledge of a fifty-year veteran of his caliber. These performances are all peppered with stories and anecdotes (in Engish or Spanish) that involve the audience, young and old, in a way that only a world class pro can do it.
