American Music

By: Laurie Gallardo

Seriously. Just listen to what the man said. “Real musicians playing real music.”

High praises from one of the greatest artists ever. To say Grupo Fantasma was deeply honored by the ultimate compliment would be an understatement. In their twenty-plus years together, the Grammy Award-winning nine-piece outfit has produced seven albums, worked on numerous collaborations, and played countless mind-blowing shows, all with a rich, multi-layered and multi-cultural sound defying any music category.

This is one of the best bands of all time. See Grupo Fantasma at their show this Saturday night, June 12, at ACL Live at The Moody Theater, 310 Willie Nelson Blvd. Joining them on the bill is another live show heart-stopper, Nané. Two of your favorites. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the music starts at 8 p.m. Masks required for entry.
