What’s one thing—other than skill, talent, versatility and professionalism—that the All Star musicians headlining the March 17 Peñasco Palooza 2012 have in common? They all developed a great love of some musical instrument at a very early age. In many cases, the instrument they learned to play, some as early as 4 years of age, is not the one they now play to the professional perfection that helped take them to platinum stardom.
To truly appreciate this event is to understand that the word “Taste” in this moniker is used in its full nuance from the word “Sabor” in Spanish which refers to much more than just the taste of food. It idiomatically encompasses all that makes a place, a thing, or an atmosphere endemically and invitingly pleasing to ones senses, like its color, its culture, its art, its people, its music, its dance, as well as its traditional foods and drinks.
With this understanding, may you go forth and fully enjoy the cultural as well as the culinary flavors of colorful Puerto Peñasco, Sonora Mexico at the 5th Annual “Taste of Peñasco”! It all starts at 11:00 A.M. and runs until 5:00 P.M. on Saturday, February 11, 2012 at Plaza del Camarón (Shrimp Plaza) located on Benito Juarez across Fremont Street from City Hall.
Home of the Brave Concerts (HOTBC) first started handling Roger Clyne and the Peace Makers famous “Circus Mexicus” summer concerts about three years ago, then expanded to manage the entertainment for the first annual Peñasco Palooza 2011 last October. Both events took place on a huge stage next to Chango’s Bar and Grill, on the entrance road to the Sonoran Sea and Sonoran Spa Resorts at Sandy Beach. They boasted concert quality synchronized lighting and a sound mix as great as you could find at any concert. For Peñasco Palooza HOTBC brought two additional bands, RoJo who play at Chango’s three nights a week, and another local favorite, Riband.
