El Vez, the Mexican Elvis, and a pick up band of ZinZanni musicians held court in the Seattle Channel studios as host, Nancy Guppy, taped a session of Art Zone this past Tuesday. The two hour session featured Teatro ZinZanni’s Latin heartthrob Robert “El Vez” Lopez and a three piece band featuring Hans Tueber and Johnny Morton on guitar, and Korum Bischoff on drums. The group performed two of El Vez’s hits- “Go Zapata Go” and “Si, I Am a Low Rider” for the Art Zone episode airing this Friday, January 14th at 8 p.m. and again on Sunday on KCTS at 11 p.m.
Check out this video, shot by ZinZanni staffer Brian Richards, of the studio session.
