Chicano Soul in So. Cali

This September, 2009 Southern California will be getting a musical treat in the form of the Chicano Soul Revue. As a group of veteran musicians from San Antonio, Austin & Temple, Texas join a group of veteran musicians from East Los Angeles to perform three shows packed with sixties soul and R&B classics mixed with several Tex-Mex classics. The band was put together by Eastside author/music historian Ruben Molina and promoter Juan Mendoza of San Antonio, TX to promote the Chicano contribution to sixties American pop culture.
