MANHATTAN, Kan. (WIBW) - Rock and Roll Hall of Fame trumpeter Herb Alpert and his Grammy-winning wife Lani Hall will grace the McCain Auditorium Stage in September.

Kansas State University says the 2022-2023 McCain Performance Series will continue with a full slate of shows in September - including Grammy-winning and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame trumpeter Herb Alpert and his wife, Lani Hall. This concert will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 14, at the McCain Auditorium, 1501 Goldstein Cir.

The New York Times has described Alpert and Hall’s performances as “happy music made by happy people.”

K-State noted that Alpert boasts 15 gold albums and more than 72 million records sold. It said Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass propelled his sound into the pop music limelight, and at one point even outsold the Beatles 2 to 1.

The University also indicated that Alpert guided A&M Records - with partner Jerry Moss - from a Hollywood garage operation into one of the most successful independent record labels in music history. Stars included Janet Jackson, Quincy Jones, Sergio Mendes & Brasil ‘66, Stan Getz, Cat Stevens, Supertramp, The Carpenters, Carole King, Sheryl Crow, Peter Frampton, The Police and scores more.

K-State said Hall was the lead singer of Sergio Mendes’ group, Brasil ‘66, and wrote the English lyrics of the band’s Brazilian songs. She won a Grammy for producing Alpert’s “Steppin’ Out” album and another for Best Latin Pop Performance on her “Es Fácil Amar” album.

In 1966, the University noted that A&M Records signed Brasil ‘66 where Hall met her future husband and music legend, Alpert. The couple married in 1973.
