Spanspek Music and Arts Festival
What's up! It's Thursday morning and the party's jumping. The bass line bumping and the DJ's yelling "Peanut Butter Wolf!"
Yeah, I don't know either, but I swear I've heard that in a song before though. Kevin Figueroa would know. Anywho, it's times to talk about our next Spanspek band! This time it's all about Visalia purveyors of latin groovesMezcal!
Here's a little bit about the band, as listed on their website:
Born out of the belly of the San Joaquin Valley, Mezcal has been entertaining audiences across the state for the past ten years. Their Latin groove's have taken them from Visalia’s annual Dia Del Nino Celebration at the Manuel Hernandez Center to Las Vegas for the nationally televised America’s Next Great American Band. Out of over 10,000 acts, Mezcal was chosen as one of the top 60 bands for the FOX series. They have shared the stage with the likes of Malo, El Chicano, Tierra, and Poncho Sanchez.
Mezcal has kept their audiences moving to their mix of Rock and Afro-Cuban rhythms. In addition, Mezcal participates in community events to support local youth and migrant farm workers through volunteer work and music workshops/performances. Their involvement with organizations like CASA, Sound & Vision Foundation, and other groups has helped raise funds and/or spread awareness for the enrichment of community interests.
There you have it folks, a great band with a heart of gold! We're proud and delighted that they're joining us in Orosi this year! I can't wait to witness all the dancing their vivacious sounds will inspire!
See what I mean!? It's going to be the crazies!
Thanks and we'll see you tomorrow at Tokyo Garden for our final fundraiser show of the year!
