Latin Legend Ramón Ayala to Perform at Chumash Casino Resort

Ramón Ayala, who’s known as “The King of the Accordion,” will bring his legendary sound to the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 11. Tickets for the show are $55, $65, $75, $85 and $95.

Norteño artist and Grammy Award winner Ayala is one of the most popular and esteemed personalities in Regional Mexican music.

In his four decades in the music industry, the innovative accordionist/vocalist has been at the helm of two of the most successful conjuntos in the history of the genre — Los Relampagos Del Norte and Ramon Ayala Y Sus Bravos Del Norte.

Throughout his more than 40 years in the industry, Ayala has recorded more than 100 albums. He turns out well-crafted and balanced music, featuring lyrics about tragedy, loneliness, broken relationships, almost unbearable longing and pain, and about experiencing love in all its complicated nuances. Ayala's music is nicely rounded out by thoughtful melodies and the soulful, rich vocals of lead singer Mario Marichalar.

Ramon Ayala Y Sus Bravos Del Norte also includes Ayala's brothers, Fidencio Ayala (bass), Jose Luis Ayala (drums) and David Laure (percussion).

Ayala continues to be a classic musician who is remembered as one of the founders of the modern norteño music. Ayala has won and has been nominated for several Grammy awards. In 2001, Ayala was awarded with an American Grammy award for the album En Vivo … El Hombre Y Su Música.

He has also been awarded with two Latin Grammys for the albums Quémame Los Ojos and El Numero Cien.

Don’t miss an opportunity to see this legendary norteño performer when he takes the stage in one of the most popular music venues in Santa Barbara County.

Located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, the Chumash Casino Resort is an age 18-or-older venue. Tickets for all events are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Chumash or online by clicking here.

Mike Traphagen is a public relations specialist for the Chumash Casino Resort.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
