Plaza Club

Please join us as we celebrate an industry icon, Al Sturchio with Sturchio Entertainment & Events!

Al Sturchio is a name in San Antonio that is synonymous with beautiful music and nostalgic sounds.  For over 45 years, he has been actively performing for ice shows, circuses, and different road shows of all kinds.  He has performed with such greats as Stevie Wonder and James Brown, and has gone on tour with Johnny Carson and Jack Benny.  One of his most important audiences were Spurs fans listening to his specially formed band, “The Sound Of The Spurs,” way back when the Spurs joined the NBA in 1976.

The son of a musician, Al started off his career in 1946 when he began playing with local big band greats.  He has been Director of many High School and Military ROTC bands and has also been an active participator in multiple community organizations.  Al served in the Korean War in the early 50’s until he was wounded and discharged.  He was later awarded a Purple Heart.

He has been supported for 63 years by his devoted wife Janice, and has three children, Ditto, Tina, and Ann, who were all brought up into the world of music and teaching. 

Mr. Sturchio will be sharing his personal story of how he began Sturchio Entertainment. He will also share some of his experiences in the events industry and a few of his favorite memories. 


In honor of their 40th anniversary, the Plaza Club has a fresh new look!  Come take a peek and check out the stunning panoramic views of downtown San Antonio.
