We just found out that we will be playing the 25th Annual 116th street Puerto Rican Day Festival on June 12 before the Puerto Rican Day parade that weekend. Big shouts to Rocio, Violeta, Calvin, Jerry, Pedro Navaja & all the other artists at the auditions. Can't wait to be there. This is where it all started and it will be a thrill for Alvin and Derek to play for the old neighborhood. We'll keep you posted with specific times and information as it develops. It was nice seeing Violetta, who was a classmate of ours at the old East Harlem Performing Arts School. She's always been a sweetheart and she hasn't changed a bit. Hope to see you at the festival. Boricua, stand up! El Barrio, stand up! Los Ciegos Del Barrio are coming back to El Barrio!
