Ozomatli and the Squirrel Nut Zippers – two beloved bands coming from different points on the map – bringing their audiences together for a select run of shows.

Unlike other touring parings, this one is already proving to be a collaborative one. The groups are collaborating on a new song for the tour.  Both groups feel this is an important time in the American Story to embrace, remember and celebrate the wealth of cultural diversity that exists in the United States.

It was about 20 years ago when NPR’s Morning Edition said: “It’s not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that it’s hot.” Last year, the Squirrel Nut Zippers performed their first set of tour dates since 2009 to sold out crowds across the country. The band is currently in the studio working on a new album which will be their first in seventeen years.

Since its inception in 1995, innovation and creativity have defined Ozomatli. Hailing from Los Angeles, the group found a way to represent the city’s eclectic culture through music that appeals to the local community and the world beyond. Their success is exemplified in an impressive variety of genres, from classic to modern Latino, urban, hip-hop and other world styles. The “Dioses del Baile,” or “Gods of Dance,” have created one of the most exciting, captivating and flat-out fun live shows touring today. They continue to harness their musical instincts by conceiving new concepts and forging new sounds that keep fans on their toes and the world dancing.

Processing and convenience fees are standard in the performing arts industry, but since the Capitol Center for the Arts handles ticket sales independently, our fees are much lower than the average fee you’ll find with theatres using third party ticketing companies. A variable per ticket convenience fee will be added to every order purchased online or by phone. You are not charged this per ticket fee when purchasing in person at the Box Office. These fees help to cover the cost of operating the theatre, as well as administrative and box office staffing, credit card fees charged by merchant services, ticketing software, 24/7 ordering via our website, postage, computer and telephone systems, utilities and supplies.

Refunds or exchanges are not permitted for any tickets purchased unless the show cancels. Please do not purchase a ticket unless you are sure that you can attend.  Members of the Capitol Center for the Arts may exchange tickets for credit toward future events.  Tickets must be presented to the box office during business hours at least 24 hours prior to the event. Tickets that are part of a VIP, Meet and Greet, or group/subscription discount package may not be eligible for ticket insurance.
