Jerry Lopez

Jerry Lopez
Jerry Lopez has been keeping a secret for a long time…at least from those who don’t live in Las Vegas. You see, since the mid seventies, Jerry has been the leader of Santa Fe and the Fat City Horns…one of the most proficient horn-based bands around. How good are they? Let’s just say they rank with horn sections such as CHICAGO, Earth Wind & Fire, Tower of Power and Seawind Horns. As lead vocalist and guitarist of the band, Lopez’ Fat City Horns play to a packed house every Monday, where half of the audience is typically comprised of musicians who play the many live shows in Las Vegas. In fact, all of the Santa Fe and the Fat City Horns band members are full-time Vegas show musicians themselves. With the release of their new album, WHEN THE CURTAIN GOES UP, Lopez and his Fat City Horns are ready to let one of the best-kept secrets out…and we’re here to help. Inside MusiCast welcomes Jerry Lopez.

Absolutely wonderful interview. Jerry Lopez and his band members are the nicest, most talented people I've ever met. I am blessed to be involved with them. I invite everyone to come witness this unbelievable band ASAP.

I've been following Jerry & Santa Fe for roughly 10 years... Discovered them by accident on a trip to Vegas and was blown away. The talent is enormous and they all play from the heart and it shows. I agree with Bobby G., they are the nicest bunch of musicians I've had the pleasure to meet. This band is so tight, they squeak, they play like they are of one mind. GOOSE BUMPS BABY! If you're in Vegas, so not miss seeing them, it will be a night you'll never forget.

Nice head shot JL! ;-D

Monday nights in Vegas....who woulda thunk it? Thoroughly enjoyed this interview. I was most impressed with the idea of everyone in the band bringing their own ideal song to do, and they simply work it out. I look forward to catching a one of their shows sometime.

Thanks, Jerry.....and as always Rick and Eddy.

When you experience a performance by Santa Fe & the Fat City Horns you feel an energy that gets your heart pumping, head bobbing and the atmosphere is very inviting. Everyone is a VIP at The Tiffany Lounge located in the Tropicana Casino. We go to the show every Monday because we Love supporting a group that gives us such joy and the joy it brings others is very present. When they play it's an hour and a half of pure fun and spiritual healing. The guys are always kind and greet you with a handshake or hug after the show. They appreciate the continued support and admiration for their craft. We highly recommend you check them out. They are amazing and you never know who might show up. The interview is a great insight to how it all started. Jerry is a great man and we are happy to see him succeed at doing what he Loves. Keep on keepin on Santa Fe & The Fat City Horns. God Bless!
