Gipsy Kings

At a Gipsy Kings concert, there is no shortage of energy, or, for that matter, musicians. During each live performance, two bands of brothers, the Reyes and the Baliardos, pile onstage to work up the crowd with their signature “rumba gitano” sound. This happy marriage of rumba rhythms and furious-flamenco guitar strumming spans cultures and moves the crowd.

The group became an international sensation with its 1987 self-titled debut. Certified gold and platinum around the world, the album introduced millions to their fusion of Western pop and Latin rhythms. Since then, the members have toured almost non-stop to far-flung places around the world and sold nearly twenty million records—and have kept their lineup intact.

Hits such as “Bamboleo,” “Volare,” and popular interpretations of songs such as the Eagles’ “Hotel California” unite audiences into a throng of chorus shouters. But the Kings aren’t content to just play their older material. Fans can also expect cuts from 2013’s Savor Flamenco, which won a Grammy for Best World Music album earlier this year.

Saenger Theatre

When it first opened in 1927, the Saenger Theatre looked like a million bucks. Specifically, $2.5 million. It was a lavish investment at a time when $2.5 million wasn’t chump change. Yet audiences could see where the money went, and sit in it too. The ads, which boasted “an acre of seats in a garden of Florentine splendor,” didn’t exaggerate—theatergoers were greeted by a stunning indoor replication of 15th century Italy, replete with a courtyard, gardens, and a cordial Donatello. Statues of Venus occupied pedestals, while a domed, twinkling ceiling gave joy to agoraphobic stargazers.

The venue suffered the same fate as much of its city in 2005, when Hurricane Katrina left its artificial Rome in ruins. But the public was unwilling to lose the storied space, and a 2013 restoration recently returned the Saenger to its former glory. Now looking like $52 million bucks, the Saenger sports the colors and finishes of the 1927 original, yet has been upgraded with some of the most technically advanced sound and lighting systems in the South.
