An Evansville native is part of the first American band to win a Latin Grammy Award, in the family music category.

Alisha Gaddis and her husband Lucky Diaz, make up the duo, Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band who will perform in town this weekend.

Gaddis describes their bilingual music as “indie pop” that kids of all ages can enjoy.
