LIVE MUSIC ARTIST BIOS
Brenton Wood is an American R&B/Soul musician whose career has spanned an impressive five decades. Wood had two hit singles in 1967, "The Oogum Boogum Song" and "Gimme Little Sign." Wood's success as a songwriter, vocalist, and pianist was achieved without any gimmicks, which were common among artists of the time. For 50 years, Wood's music has resonated with the Latino and Chicano communities not only for its catchy rhythms, but also for his "can do" message of empowerment.
The Latin Breed
Born on the south side of San Antonio in 1969, The Latin Breed is on of the most distinctive bands to survive the Chicano/Tejano renaissance. Their signature sound blends influences of Tejano, R&B, Jazz/Funk, and orchestral/big band. With 19 recorded albums and a Tejano Music Award, The Latin Breed has kept traveling on the road, performing diverse music along with their well established hits. The 10-piece band continues with a celebratory 50th Anniversary tour across the nation. Catch them live in Peoria, Arizona on Saturday, September 28, 2019!
El Chicano is a premier Latino Rock band founded in East Los Angeles in 1970. The group has recorded 12 studio albums and has received 5 Gold records for album sales. The group blends rock, soul, Latin, funk, and jazz elements to create their signature sound. Now in their 50th year, El Chicano is still recording, touring, and delighting audiences by performing music "always from the heart."
