Mas Mamones and Los Poboycitos at Tipitina’s June 8, 2012

Posted on

Our friends with Los Poboycitos invited us to open for them at Tipitina’s uptown on Friday, June 8.  We are going to start at 10pm.  It’s a “Foundation Free Friday”, meaning that everybody gets in free all night.

Jonathan has been in Los Angeles for several months and we welcome him back for this set.  Also, Martin Krusche is going to play tenor sax.  We have plans to invite some Poboys up to jam Hey Boogaloo with us.

Mas Mamones at New Orleans Jazz Fest 2012

Posted on

We were lucky to appear at the N.O. Jazz fest this year. Our performance was on the Acura Stage this year. It’s the biggest stage at the Fairgrounds and it’s just perfect for me. I imagine being on a stage like this whenever I close my eyes to jam out during a song. We only had 45 minutes so we had to cut out a couple songs from the list as the time ticked away.

We were also lucky enough to have our performance recorded by 3 cameras. This video will be available in about a month. We had Manny, Andy, Michael, Eduardo, Derek and Joe.

Sure hope to be back next year.

We have all played together in different groups over the years

We had a great time at the 2nd annual New Orleans Latin Jazz Festival. The audience was great, Rock n Bowl is a beautiful space, Chris the soundman made it easy, there were so many friends I didn’t get a chance to take photos of everyone.
