With almost 30 years in the Texas music scene, Los Skarnales was started in 1994. The band rose out of the ashes of local punk rock band Desorden with help from original members Felipe Galvan and Jose Rodriguez. Always true to roots music in all forms, Skarnales performs a mixture of ska, reggae, rockabilly,  cumbia, and danzones, all with a punk attitude. Never letting down at a live show, the band has performed extensively throughout the United States and Mexico and has shared the stage with such artists as Flaco Jimenez, Ozomatli, Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, the Aggrolites, Maldita Vecindad, the Slackers, the Specials, Fishbone, Agent Orange, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, and many more.

By the mid 2000’s, the band had released three full length releases: Vatos Rudos, Suavecito Style, and Pachuco Boogie Sound System and had been featured on numerous compilations and live recordings distributed throughout the U.S. and Mexico, including the song “Demasiado Tarde” in the 1999 movie, “Sexo, Pudor y Lagrimas”.  

In 2010, Los Skarnales released its Fourth studio album entitled “Dále Shine!” which was recorded in New Orleans. The Album retains the Ska/Reggae feel of previous works, but incorporates more Latin sounds for an energetic mesh that will most definitely keep the bodies moving.

Los Skarnales celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2014 with the release of “Vatos Rudos Forever”, a collection of 34 songs spanning the band’s beginnings to the current line-up, demonstrating the band’s diverse sounds.

In 2015 the band released the EP entitled “Another Day, Another Borrachera” on Smelvis Records. Once again, the Vatos Rudos from Texas were at it again, mixing global roots music with their Chicano style showing off their Pachuco Boogie sounds.

Recently coming back from performing the massive Ska festival SKA-TEX in Texcoco, Mexico in Oct. 16th were they headlined and closed the festival in front on 40,000 eager fans and sharing the stage with international Ska bands as Inspector,  Los Intocables, Inspecter 7, Los Autenticos Decadentes, El Gran Silencio, Molotov, and many more.

Money Chicha

       Money Chicha is an Austin, Texas based group featuring members of the Grammy-award winning Latin orchestra Grupo Fantasma and its offshoot funk outfit Brownout which performs a fuzzed-out, reverb-drenched and percussion-heavy style of music inspired by the sounds of Peru and Colombia in the 60’s and 70’s. This style of music, sometimes called “Chicha” music, is known for its infectious Latin beat, its psychedelic, surf guitar pyrotechnics and its melodies influenced by the indigenous culture of the Andes mountains.

       The group’s sound is derived from the exhilarating syncopations of congas, cowbell and timbales, the gritty tones of combo organs and vintage synthesizers, effects-laden guitar melodies, insistent basslines and a healthy dose of trippy, psychedelic effects. Money Chicha is a modern translation of this South American musical style interpreted by highly skilled veterans of America’s most vibrant music town. In their capable hands the “Chicha” genre takes on a new and unique character, guaranteed to move one to both dance and listen, entranced by the undeniable rhythms and virtuosic displays of musicality.  

          Money Chicha’s debut album “Echo en Mexico” was released in July 2016 on Vampisoul/Munster records (Spain) and received overwhelming praise from critics and tastemakers in North/South America and Europe as well. The band’s music has also been featured on numerous compilations including “The Rough Guide to Psychedelic Cumbia” and “Songlines Compilations disk Fall 2016” and has been featured on British Airways Songlines radio playlists. The group has performed at Tropico Festival in Acapulco, MX, Mapquest music festival, SXSW, Pachanga Festival and is scheduled to perform at  Mole de Mayo festival in Chicago, IL

The Modern Don Juans hail from Austin, Texas. The band consists of members of some of the best known and most celebrated US rockabilly bands to have emerged since the 50s. It’s more than likely that you have seen Tony Estrada – vocals and guitar, Tjarko Jeen – guitar, Todd Wulfmeyer – bass and Bobby Trimble – drums on stage somewhere, sometime if you’re into rockabilly at all. Their resumes include The Star Mountain Dreamers, Big Sandy and the Fly-Rite Trio, Ronnie Dawson, Marti Brom, The Bellfuries, The Modern Don Juans, The Dave And Deke Combo, The Planet Rockers and Kim Lenz and that’s just the rockabilly acts they’re associated with. Individually but also often as a team the guys have backed up just about every original 50s artist that has reemerged on the scene and that versatility, flexibility and experience shows up in their music, sound and individual styles. The music is not just rockabilly or 50s Rock and roll. Being from Texas other influences like country, blues and swing can’t help but sneak in. The band prides itself in mainly playing original material but doesn’t shy away from playing a few well-chosen covers either. After their Spinout records debut album and accompanying 45 there are now plans for a second full length due out in the near future.
