My College Buddy is Hitting the Big Time

I got an email from a college buddy today - he's been living in Boston for the last 20 or so years, doing well with his own residential renovation business, playing music on the side. His band, Santa Mamba is going to be opening for Los Lobos in June. Gary plays percussion. Check out this video from You Tube:

From a critic:

"For over 10 years, Santa Mamba has been igniting venues all along the East Coast with their spicy blend of Latin Jazz, hip-shaking salsa, driving rock n' roll guitar, swaggering bass funk and smooth merengue beats. Their energy and musicianship guarantee an entranced audience and a packed dance floor, as the band's sizzling world rhythms and fiery passion continue to attract new fans and surprise old ones."

If you like the music, you can download their latest album on iTunes.
