Honestly, we don’t know a lot folks who don’t get down with the Gipsy Kings. The band possesses a mystique that predates the 1987 release of their global hit “Bamboleo.” An outgrowth of the late flamenco legend José Reyes’ France-based family band Los Reyes, Gipsy Kings – brothers Nicolas, André, Paul, Canut and Patchai Reyes plus cousins Tonino, Jacques “Paco” and Maurice “Diego” Baliardo (sons of Manitas de Plata, “the Picasso of the Flamenco Guitar”) – put an easy-drinking spin on modern “rumba catelana.” With a gravelly voice the Los Angeles Times once described as “breathtakingly emotive,” Nicolas leads the band’s unmistakable originals and brave reinventions of untouchable classics like “Volare,” “Hotel California” and “My Way.”

$52-$92, Wed May 16, 8pm, Majestic Theatre, 224 E Houston St., (210) 226-5700, majesticempire.com.
