YOU CAN CARRY A GUN, BUT YOU CAN’T CARRY A BEER? “The Cantina” My newest song!

You heard right. That’s the law in Arizona, and the motivation for writing “The Cantina”. And now my vision is coming to life for the song!! What a blast…and a lot of work.

TIME: High Noon Sunday

I am so excited that I am going out of my tree! Today is the beginning of the project! I am anxiously waiting for the Mariachi band to show up at my house! I’m serving bagels and….salsa?

Mariachi Sol Azteca is coming to rehearse, with full costume for a photo shoot, going in Zocalo Magazine! I cannot thank them enough for stepping up to the plate to keep me within my budget. So this is phase 1. (And of course, thank Zocalo Magazine for covering my book and the song!)

Phase 2 will be rehearsing with the “cowboys”. This song will cross over between 2 musical cultures that are very prominent in Arizona. It’s a new venture for me. Out of my tree!

Now I must prepare the brunch. Musicians love to eat!

TIME: Sundown Sunday

My mouth still hurts from smiling! We were given a private serenade in our backyard, by the most charming Mariachis! This is just half of the band, but Mariachi Sol Azteca are full of personality and talent. I feel so lucky that Maria Powell introduced us.

They showed up in 3 cars and a Harley. We did a rehearsal. And I cannot wait to lay down the tracks! Phase 1 is complete! Very special thanks to band leader, Angel Guzman.

He’s gonna fall for me!

Ahhhhh!

Ahhhhh!

I hope y’all fall for the song! Come see me perform it live at Tucson Folk Festival, La Cucina, on May 3rd, and May 10th at Hacienda Del Sol. Perhaps with surprise guests!
