June 21 – Mariachi Rosas Divinas

Mariachi Rosas Divinas seems an appropriate name for this divine all female group. Rosas Divinas have broken the mold when it comes to the beloved style of mariachi music. As the first and only all female mariachi in the DFW Metroplex and one of few in the Country, being different is not all that difficult. Lipstick smudges brass mouthpieces, long fingernails work perfectly for strumming guitars and glossy dark hair flows down the back of brightly coordinated outfits. Breaking away from traditional stereotypes, these vivacious women bring life back into a traditional music which began in the small pueblos of 19-century Mexico.

Desiring to perform the mariachi music she played in her hometown of Taos, New Mexico, Director Tabitha Sanchez Barrientos, sought out to find a team of like-minded musicians. “Playing with passion is the most important element when playing mariachi music,” she says ”But a commitment to musical precision is what we strive to be known and respected for.”

Bringing the heart-felt style of mariachi music with their precise musical execution is what sets these young women apart in a male dominated genre. All who see them perform agree that their enthusiasm and musical creativity breaths life into familiar trios, rancheras and traditional boleros. From being the first mariachi to ever play in the Gran Cayman Islands to sharing the stage with legends such as Fito Olivares, Graciela Beltran and Ozomatli, Rosas Divinas have been captivating audiences since their very first performance in 2005.


July 5 – Squeezebox Bandits

Join us for a special Squeezebox Bandits duo performance!

“The Squeezebox Bandits sound a whole lot like Texas. Their mix of Tejano and C&W reflects the upbringing of the quartet’s co-frontmen, Abel Casillas and Vincent Saldivar, who met as teenagers while playing a benefit concert at a jail in Fort Worth. The two grew up in the predominantly Hispanic North Side under the influence of a tapestry of cross-cultural music. The quartet has carved out a spot for themselves in Fort Worth’s music scene thanks in part to a relentless schedule packed with up to five gigs a week for the past two years, some good relationships, and a sound that connects with a wide audience, drawing in fans of Tejano and country alike.” — Fort Worth Weekly
