I haven't posted a blog in a while due to an amazing amount of months of awesome events, ridiculous amounts of travel, and hard work that I needed to sleep off. BUT, I'm back baby and it feels good!

My first blog post is dedicated to one of my favorite subjects; supporting local bands and especially in my case local Latin bands. I'm a fan of many and have watch many of them bloom into rockstars along the years. I'm so happy for all of them!
