La Placita Village
Tucson, Arizona
October 6, 2002

     On Sunday, October 6, 2002 Mark Guerrero & Radio Aztlán headlined a concert at La Placita Village in downtown Tucson, Arizona.  It was a beautiful outdoor setting, where we introduced four new songs to our repertoire and had a great time.  Tucson is a very hip town.  The night we arrived, Al Dimeola was appearing at the Rialto Theater.  We caught part of his show and later he and his band were hanging out in the lobby/bar area of the historic Hotel Congress, where we were staying.  (The Rialto is right across the street from the Hotel Congress).  In the nightclub of our hotel, Steve Wynn, formerly of the 80s band Dream Syndicate, was playing with his current band.  They were in town recording a new CD and staying at the hotel at no charge in exchange for playing a free show.  The night we performed at La Placita Village, also appearing in town were John Mayall, at the Rialto, and Tony Bennett, at Casino del Sol.  We also did a live performance and interview at KXCI FM radio the afternoon of our concert.

The Galaxy Theater
Santa Ana, California
July 20, 2002

     Mark Guerrero & Radio Aztlán's first performance was Saturday, July 20, 2002 at The Galaxy Theater in Santa Ana, California.  We were on the bill with Malo and Tierra for that show as well.  Our set included nine of my songs, as well as a couple of my dad's, legendary Chicano singer/songwriter Lalo Guerrero.  We did a tight show we were extremely happy with and received an excellent response from the sold out house.  Malo followed with a powerhouse set, led by original member Arcelio Garcia on lead vocals.  They had the house dancing and groovin' and closed their set with their classic hit, "Suavecito."  Tierra closed the show with a phenomenal set, which included a display of great musicianship and showmanship.  They dawned zoot suits at one point and a sax lit up with rolling lights during a hot solo.  Rudy Villa (one of their two sax players) also did a great comic impression of the late rhythm & blues DJ, Wolfman Jack, wig and all.  They did a great version of one of my favorite Tierra recordings, "Mi Gente," and closed the show with their classic hit, "Together."  The Galaxy Theater was jumpin' all night long and the people, including myself, had a great time.  See flyer below.

The First Incarnation of Radio Aztlán

     In 1991, I put together what was the first version of Radio Aztlán.  Due to some personal circumstances, it only lasted for a few months during which time we recorded a few demos, played a show on January 12, 1991 at the historic La Golondrina Cafe at Olvera Street in Los Angeles, and were the house band on a live show called "Noche de Risa y Susto," that featured Cheech Marin, Rita Moreno, Paul Rodriguez, George Lopez, Culture Clash, Carlos Mencia, and others.  The band members were Mark Guerrero (guitar, keyboard, and lead vocals), Ron Reyes (lead guitar), Bill Reyes (drums), Leo Valenzuela (bass), and Alex Armstrong (guitar and background vocals).  Ron, Leo, and Alex were all to be in Radio Aztlán when it resumed eleven years later in 2002.
