Roberto Tapia, one of the most popular performers in the Mexican Regional music genre, makes his return to the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 29, 2018. Tickets for the show are $45, $55 & $65.
The Latin star is known for his wide range of styles, performing everything from romantic ballads to controversial corridos. Tapia also weaves fast-paced, high-energy songs into his concerts, which have helped him secure a loyal following among fans.
In 2013, Tapia performed his greatest hits in front of sold-out crowd at the Chumash Casino Resort. Since then, he has proceeded to release new material and tour throughout North America. His most recent albums include “Diferente,” a 2015 release that diverted away from corridos and focused on romantic tracks, and “Esto Es Sólo El Comienzo,” which earned the star critical acclaim upon its release in 2017 for its mix of banda anthems and soulful norteño ballads.
The native of San Diego moved to Sinaloa, Mexico, when he was a young boy and later enrolled in Difocur, a prestigious music school, at the age of 11. After some coaxing from friends and family, Tapia began performing in dance halls and receptions to gain experience in front of crowds. At 17, he made his professional debut in Tijuana, Mexico, alongside El Lobito de Sinaloa, and, in 2001, Tapia assembled musicians for his forthcoming debut album. Mixing Latin rhythms with touches of hip-hop and electronica, Tapia released his self-titled album in August 2002. It vaulted the Latin artist to superstardom, and his popularity has grown during tours throughout Mexico, the United States and Latin America.
His past hits on the Latin Billboard chart include “Caminos Diferentes” in 2009 and “Me Duele” in 2011. Tapia has also scored on Regional Mexican charts with songs such as “Pancho Loco,” “Las Edades,” “El Pistolero,” “Amores Como El Nuestro,” “Peor Que a un Perro,” “Solo Piensa Que Te Quiero,” “Los Amigos del M Grande,” and many others.
Don’t miss an opportunity to see this renowned Latin music star when he takes the stage in one of the most popular entertainment venues in Santa Barbara County.
Located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, California, the Chumash Casino Resort is an age 21-and-older venue. Tickets for all events are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Indulge or online at www.chumashcasino.com.
