Este Vato, those "Bad Asses of Latin Fusion in Austin, Texas debuted a new song to their ever growing play list and added a horn section to the band.
Este Vato always strives for new and original songs, one of the things that I like about the band. They debuted "Palabra" last week at Trophy's Bar and Grill in Austin, Texas on February 5, 2011. They stayed true to their sound by remaining bilingual, maintaining the Latin Fusion sound , using an MC and DJ and most of all staying "edgy." Este Vato is not your run of the mill Latin band. They want to be and are different from other bands, Latin or not. They also strive to improve and expand their sound. The addition of a horn section does just that. They added a trombone and a trumpet player which gives the band a larger sound, more depth and more versatility. I like it all and look forward to more developments.
The band members are:
Rocky Reyna: Bass/Backing Vocals
Oscar Reyna: Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals
Ricardo Lara: Vocal/Acoustic Guitar
Feliciano "Chano" Lopez: Vocals/Percussion
Rey Treviño: Turntables/Samples
Frank "FAAR" Ramirez: Drums/Percussion
David Martinez: Trumpet
Roy Pulido: Trombone
