Mariachi Pai Pai is a group comprised of five mariachi musicians that together have over a 100 years of experience playing the mariachi repertoire. Armando Galvan, music director and trumpet player, formed the ensemble over 10 years ago with the vision to bring professional free-lance mariacheros (mariachi musicians) together in order to provide quality music to its patrons. The ensemble consists of two trumpets, violin, guitarron (bass), and vihuela (rhythm guitar). Mariachi Pai Pai prides itself in executing traditional mariachi repertoire with musical integrity and upholding of traditional harmonies and performance practices.
Doors for this free performance open at 12:45 p.m. and it is open seating.
