Latin AllStars Hit their Mark

If you missed the October 5th show, then you missed a good one. Anyone who took my word and came to see the show told me that I was right about the group and they were totally entertained and impressed with both Ray Carrion & The Latin AllStars and Heavy Weather.

After a great opening set of early Santana favorites by Heavy Weather, the next set started off with one of my all time favorites, "Me And Baby Brother" led by longtime WAR harmonica players Tex Nakamura. The group continued with one classic after another from Gilbert Stokes, LuLu Cardona, Rocky Padilla and finishing off with Mike Jimenez and Steve Salas performing Tierra classic "Together" – a crowd favorite.

The rest of the group performed with great precision with Tony Hernandez, Steve Gutierrez and a great horn section with Robert Navarette and Bobby Loya. It was great to hear from everyone who were thoroughly entertained by the show and who trusted my invitation.

40th Anniversary Puro Bandido - Sat Nov 2 - Club Fox

Corner of 25th Street and York

The journey this group has taken over the years could only be described by the Grateful Dead quote, "What A Long Strange Trip It's Been".

I remember seeing the group for the first time booking them back in the early 80's for the 24th Street Fair and was blown away. This was when they were headed up by a real Bandido, Jose Mayorga, who not only looked like a pirate but dressed like one as well. Along with Richard Segovia on timbales and Johny Gunn on guitar, the group would come out smoking and just blow fire from all sides.

One of my favorite shows had Johnny Gunn riding up on to the front of the club on his motorcycle, removing his jumpsuit and jumping up on stage right on cue for the start of the show with guitar in hand. The owner of the club outside witnessed this and said,"Wow, if I had know he was going to do that I would have provided a ramp right up to the stage."

The group has gone through the usual personnel changes that most groups go through over the years as well as the death of Jose Mayorga, but Richard Segovia and Johnny Gunn have continued to carry the torch for the sound they created, Border Rock by Puro Bandido. And now they bring their show to Club Fox to celebrate their journey over these last 40 years.

Along with opener Rose Marie, Richard has promised many surprises and special guests and will once again leave the stage smoking with fire coming from all sides. This show is nearly sold out (by Richard himself) so try and secure your tickets soon or you will miss this celebration of Puro Bandido!
