Mark Guerrero with El Chicano

The Spa Resort Casino
Art Laboe's Latin Jam
Palm Springs, California
January 14, 2017

     El Chicano performed at Art Laboe's Latin Jam in my neck of the woods on the bill with Rose Royce and Tejano music legends Rene Rene and Sunny Ozuna.  El Chicano closed the show.  I had shown up the morning of the concert to have breakfast with my friend Rene Ornelas, now known as Rene Rene.  By sheer coincidence, I ran into the leader of El Chicano, Fred Sanchez, at the casino.  After saying hello he asked me if I wanted to play with them that night.  I was kind of blown away because we weren't going to have time to rehearse, but agreed to play.  At the sound check there was no time to go over anything so I went home and reviewed the songs on you tube for about a half hour.  I was familiar with the material and had played most of it before at some point.  It worked out well and I had a great time.

Musicians Fred Sanchez (bass, lead and harmony vocals), Jerry Salas (lead vocals, rhythm and lead guitar), Mickey Lespron (lead guitar and harmony vocals), Joey Navarro (Hammond organ and harmony vocals), Eddie Avila (drums), Mio "Timbalero" Flores (timbales), David "Chango" Chavez (congas), Rosella Hamilton (tamborine and harmony vocals), and Mark Guerrero (rhythm guitar and harmony vocals)
