The name, Mambo Jazz Kings, makes you wonder what to expect, but the performance leaves no doubt! “Have Soul Will Travel” is our motto. The founder and leader of this entertainment package is Art Lopez. He has put together a great group of musicians, each having their own style and appeal. When these individuals take the stage together though, the chemistry is magic and you can be assured it will be hard to keep your seat.
The band has made numerous appearances at Mardi Gras appearances throughout Galveston County, Houston’s International Festivals, and The Power of Houston Festival.
