Mambo Jazz Kings; Have Soul Will Travel!
Over Thirty years of exciting entertainment

Often Imitated but never duplicated

The Original Mambo Jazz Kings
ART LOPEZ
musical director of the Mambo
Jazz Kings. He is the glue that Art
Lopez is the founder and keeps
the act together and the driving
force behind this entertainment
package. On stage he is the
lead/rhythm guitar player. Art has
played with many bands
throughout his life. He started off
playing the drums at an early age
but in high school made the switch
to guitar. His local mentors
growing up were, “The Boogie
Kings” and “The TSU Tornados.”  
Arts style of direction and
influence for the Mambo Jazz
Kings has come from none other
than the great Tower of Power.

Art lays down a sweet and smooth
melody that keeps the audience
groovin every time the band takes
the stage!
