Alfonso Arias

In Memoriam
December 9, 1927 -June 27, 2011

The heart and soul of the Arias Troubadours for so many years,
the current members of the group are striving to maintain his legacy.


Celebrating over 90 years since it's founding, the Arias Troubadours now include the fourth generation of musicians, singers and dancers. In 1915 at the occasion of the Panama -California Exposition in San Diego, Ca., Jose Arias founded the Arias Troubadours not only to entertain audiences but to continue the traditions and influences of music in early California.

Through the years the Arias Troubadours have performed for U.S. Presidents such as former Pres. George Bush, sr., former Pres. Bill Clinton, and countless celebrities such as Gilbert Roland, Ricardo Montalban, John Wayne, Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, Melanie Griffith and Cheech Marin. That tradition continues today as the Arias Troubadours appearances include:

Dodger Stadium

The Rose Parade

Universal Studios

Angel Stadium

Santa Barbara's Early California Day's

Moraga Winery, Bel-Air, Ca.

Mission Inn, Riverside, Ca.

The Bowers Museum, Santa Ana, Ca.

There is a long history of association with the Ramona Pageant which is California's official Outdoor play. In 1924 Jose Arias and his Troubadours were invited to perform for the Ramona Pageant. That relationship continues to this day as during April, 2016, his nephews, grandchildren and now even great-grandchildren will again be the Ramona Pageant orchestra, singers and dancers.
