On Thursday, September 24, 2015, NLBHA welcomed Santa Fe and the Fat City Horns in their first ever appearance in Santa Fe. Santa Fe & The Fat City Horns are the premier band in Las Vegas, Nevada, performing every Monday night at the Palms Casino and Resort. This is their first performance in Santa Fe which is also their namesake. For more than 30 years, Santa Fe & The Fat City Horns has been one of Las Vegas’ Crown Jewels, never giving less than 100% to their audiences. This band is the “farm club” for many headline acts, shows, and bands that includes all the top musicians in Las Vegas. The band features a 6-piece horn section, and a 6-piece rhythm section and five lead singers. If you are a fan of jazz, latin music, funk, rthymn and blues along with rock n roll, this was a show you will never forget. Those that came out to see the band were treated to SFTFCH's band leader and founder, from Santa Fe and the 2015 Platinum Achievement Award winner, Jerry Lopez. His legendary status in the entertainment capital of the world is on display in his hometown, Santa Fe.
