Wow this is the first time in a while that all of the "projects" I'm involved with are active at the same time. I try to make it a point to stay "un-busy"..might be a pointless battle...
Starting with Fatigo, It's been a very interesting year. I moved to Bisbee Az about a year and a half ago, started a Bisbee Line-Up of the Band (Sam & Danielle Panther, Randelle Saline, Anji Kate, and NM&WG ...when they're available) and still managed to play a few cool shows with both versions. The people at The Crescent Ballroom have been really great to us and we are very grateful for the support they give to our noise. The Next Fatigo (Bisbee) show will be June 15th at The Bisbee Stock exchange. Also Anji and I play Fatigo songs as a duo. Will be updating calendar......uh today!
Keep an eye out for a Fatigo Ep featuing Bisbee and Phoenix versions of Fatigo....Ya mero! Also in the works are recordings with NM&WG.
Conjunto Royal: This is a group Anji and I formed with some Bisbee locals (Becky Reyes, Jim Harrelson) about 6 months ago. Basically, we 've compiled a list of our favorite latin songs and present them in our own way. We'vejust added Randelle Saline on bass. It's already sounding great. We're stoked to be part of the annual Rock for Rehab concert in Bisbee on 4/27. We're also playing at the Tubac Golf Resort May 11th.
Montoya Clan is back.....The Pops (Pedro Montoya) is dusting off his guitar and fedora and getting us all together for the Rock for Rehab concert on 4/27! If you haven't seen the Montoya-clan we're basically like a Mexican Jackson five! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vJt5ElJwHQ
Well that's it for now....look out for recordings from all three of these groups! Salud! Mike Montoya
