Whatever the reason, don't miss his performance with The Blazers at the Quincy Vets Hall Saturday, March 6. The Blazers, hailing from East Los Angeles, play big- hearted Latino roots rock mu- sic that's soulful, surprising and always fun. Combining electric guitars, bass and drums with traditional instru- ments, such as the bajo sexto and button accordion, The Blazers make music that draws on the deep well of Mexican- American culture and life. The Blazers have a long dis- tinguished history. Ruben Guaderrama and Manuel "Manny" Gonzales began playing music in high school while growing up in East L.A. Their free-style form of music knew no boundaries -- they felt just as comfortable play- ing rock and roll as .they did playing boleros, cumbias and mariachi music. Through the years, Ruben and Manny went through a succession of group names and band members, finally embracing the name The Blazers. Playing clubs, dances, and parties around Southern California, the band built a devoted following for their unique blend of Ameri- can rock with traditional Mexican music. In the early '90s, they came to the attention of renowned roots label Rounder Records. They released several critical- ly acclaimed records on' Rounder including "Just For You" which marked their first association with produc- er Pete Anderson. The band quickly developed a close musical kinship with Anderson, who had been in- strumental in the rise of the "new traditionalist" move- ment personified by his work with Dwight Yoakam. That friendship eventually led to The Blazers signing to Anderson's Little Dog label. Their collaboration produced the critically acclaimed "17 Jewels," which has often been described as the band's crown- ing musical achievement. Not one to sit on his laurels, Ruben returned to Little Dog's studio last year to con- tinue to build on The Blazers' legacy, this time with produc- er Tony Rambo. The result is the ebullient "Dreaming a Dream," another down-and-dirty masterpiece that defies anyone to keep his feet still. As Ruben laughs, "There's a guaranteed pachanga in every song!" "We're 'the other band' from East LA," said Manny with a laugh. Comparisons to Los Lobos aside, this band tours constantly throughout the United States, and takes regular forays to Europe. They have developed a repu- tation as an excellent live band and an extraordinarily nice group of guys. "We've played with Los Lo- bos in Salt Lake City and Alvin. Lee in Sweden last summer," said Ruben, "and in both in- stances the audience response has been overwhelming. It's good to see that we have sort of a universal appeal." Guaderrama is excited about bringing the music of The Blazers back to Plumas County. He still remembers the dance at the Solar Cook- Off more than a decade ago. The band also left an im- pression on local events pro- ducers. This band is one of Plumas Arts Director Rox- anne Valladao's personal fa- vorites, and she has been wanting to get them back to Plumas County since they played the Solar Cook-Off years ago. Plumas Arts hosts the event and thanks the James Irvine Foundation for support for artist fees to bring culturally diverse performers to Plumas County audiences.
