Spanspek Spotlight 2016: Mariachi Sol de Oro

What's the word nerds?  I went to Universal Studios this past weekend and spent some times in Hogwarts.  It was the shit! I'm a wizard now basically, so who's the nerd now bullies?!

Anyway, it's not often we here at Spanspek Headquarters to book an Orosi born and raised act.  So we are extremely excited to give it up for Orosi mariachi squad MARIACHI SOL DE ORO!
Here's a little bit about the grupo from their Facebook profile:

With its roots beginning from a high school class, Mariachi Sol de Oro has been around since 2004 and has now developed into its own independent mariachi group. With member ranging from 14 years old to 56 years old, we are a group of much diversity, which we are very proud of. We are happy to play anywhere anytime so don't be hesitant and ask.

Ok folks, here's the deal. This ain't gonna be your typical set of mariachi classics played for your Tia Josefina's hijas boda.  For one night only, Mariachi Sol de Oro will be playing some roc en espanol favorites for our faces! The set is super top secret though, so we're not sure what songs will be in the set, but rest assured it's gonna unique and brilliant!  I for one hope they play some Cafe Tacvba, cause watching a mariachi get down to some Mexico City punk would be the shit!

Thanks for reading folks!  And by the way, to get more information on Spanspek 2016 go here and RSVP on our Facebook event page! Good night!
