Sunday Cinco de Mayo Celebration at the Sleeptrain Arena in Sacramento!!

When I was a little girl I saw this moment. I would watch my mother sing on stage. I mesmorized. Somehow I knew one day I would be doing the same thing. My life took so many twists and turns, but God always had a plan for me. He gave me the gift of melody, and the ability to write songs. I can honestly say, that my life would be nothing without God and the mercy he has had upon me. My_mom_and_me_resized.jpg

MARK YOUR CALENDAR'S FOR LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!!!

SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 5TH 2010!!! BLANCA STARTS AT 7 PM!!

In 2009 Salvador entered the studio to record his second major studio album / first solo album Keyboard City. He enlisted underground legends Del The Funky Homosapien, Money Mark (Beastie Boys), and GZA to help him with the album's production.
Keyboard City was built on what Salvador called "a mix of my favorite music, the best of what’s impacted my life, all coming together in a new way." Salvador first masterminded the direction for the album after a 2008 Remixes project where Del The Funky Homosapien was commissioned to remix the SSB song"Hella Tight". The synergy between Salvador and Del, along with the eclectic and fresh sound of the Remixes project was the inspiration for the new musical direction in the studio for his sophomore release.
In late fall 2009 a series of remix MP3s of the album's title track "Keyboard City" were released on the internet. These remixes were performed by internet DJs, The Hood Internet as well as indie electronic musician Dan Deacon, both remixes featured vocals by GZA. These remix MP3s were wildly popular, appearing on taste maker music sites such as Brooklyn Vegan, Pitchfork Media, and My Old Kentucky Blog. Keyboard City was released on February 2, 2010 via Quannum Projects. Keyboard Magazine [1] declared that "Funkadelic and the Meters had a love child who was then raised by Esquivel in a space age bachelor pad full of analog synths." The magazine also stated, "On December 31, 2019, Keyboard City may well be remembered as one of the standout neo-funk records of the decade." Allmusic.com [2] gave the album 4.5 out of 5 stars and Spin Magazine [3] gave the album 3 out of 5 stars.

SCRIBE has been rapping on stage with Grammy Award winning performer Carlos Santana, and his son Salvador, since he was still in high school. As lead MC for the Salvador Santana Band, he toured and performed throughout Europe, Canada and The United States. Sammy has opened for acts such as Santana, Los Lonely Boys, Ozomatli and The Robert Randolph Band. Scribe has also recorded with Carlos Santana on the benefit CD “Food for Thought” (released all over the United States) and the Santana DVD “Hymns for Peace” (released world wide). Scribe, who began his journey as a classical and jazz musician, developed an eclectic taste in music that is so much a part of his current band. As an MC and a songwriter Sammy has the opportunity to write and record with Carlos Santana, Salvador Santana and Los Mocosos. The Scribe project has given me the opportunity to create music that represents my soul and spirit. This six-piece band embodies a global experience, showing off hip hop/funk/rock and soul like you have never seen before. Ft. on the Track "Open your Eyes" with Carlos Santana

With a soulful voice and lyrics from the heart, singer songwriter Blanca Sandoval has captivated audiences. By means of an unrivaled sound that blends together her Latin musical roots with Rock hiphop, Ska, Jazz, Funk, Fusion to Rock en Español, Cumbia, Salsa, Boleros and up beat ballads. Her bilingual style is extremely diverse and prepared to engage any crowd.
Sharing the stage with her brothers in music, Robert Zamora on Lead guitar, Oscar Tablada on Bass, and Mike Juarez on drums, The now band called "BLANCA" is poised on the edge of stardom soulful, edgy and defiant.

Malo
Forty years ago, a group of musicians from the Excelsior and Mission Districts of San Francisco became known as “Malo”. Previously, they had called themselves “The Malibus” and they played at places such as the Mission YMCA and the Nite Life night club. Their big hit “Suavecito” in 1972 has been called "The Chicano National Anthem" and was arranged for Malo by Richard Bean, Pablo Tellez, and Abel Zarate. Malo then had a huge following and released other hits, such as "Chevere", "Nena", "Pana", "Cafe" and "Oye Mama".

Malo is still exciting crowds everywhere they go and will be celebrating their 40th year on July 31st at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. Special guest stars will be performing with them to commemorate this historic event in their home town. Malo’s current line-up includes: Arcelio Garcia (Lead Vocals), Jorge Santana (Guitar), Gus Bogios (Bass), David George (Drums), Gabriel Manzo (Lead Guitar), Gibby Ross (Timbales), Daniel Cervantes (Keyboards), Brian Buekelman (Trumpet), Pete Rodriguez (Trumpet, Trombone), Jack Musgrove (Trumpet, Flugelhorn) and David Chavez (Congas).

She is strong in her convictions and most of her songs include a message, which profess her strength as a woman and as a Latina. When she performs, you cannot help but notice that her fans get out of their seats to get close to the stage so as not to miss a minute of her performance. Her fans also seem to know the words to all of her songs and most are singing along during her performance.
