The Kirkland Performance Center was the place to be Saturday night as local artist, Bobby Medina and his band Whipped Cream performed a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass. The trumpets, drums, strings and keys rang out with the tunes which topped the Billboard charts during much of the late 1960s and 1970s. 

Fun Fact: In 1962 Herb Alpert and Jerry Moss founded the A&M record label.

Sitting in our row was one fan who brought his original reel to reel copy of the Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass's iconic album, "Whipped Cream and Other Delights," which he had autographed by the former model, now 76, Dolores Erickson, who made an appearance at the show.

Thank you to the show sponsors, Santos & Sue Contreras, Don & Merrily Dicks, Doreen Marchione and Grant & Nancy Silvernale.
