We had a great time on Saturday at our third showcase at Jovita’s on South 1st Street. Our Jovita’s residency started January, and we’ll be doing one Saturday night show a month at the venerable South Austin restaurant for 2012. So remember the name and location.

Our recent show featured two Latin dance bands who put their own spin on cumbias and Latin-influenced pop/dance music. Opening the show was Corpus Christi’s electro/hip-hop group Master Blaster Sound System, featuring Charanga Cakewalk collaborator Brian Ramos and Peligrosa’s own DJ Dus. Headlining was Manzanas Malas, which is a new and improved version of Los Bad Apples. The Spanish pop group brings more hip-hop edge and musical presence to the stage than in years past.
