Happy Christmas to you all.
By word of the family, Victor’s service will be delayed probably
until after the holidays. I’ll will post when there is more information


Victor of Savor flavor has died.
My good friend, I hope you’re in a great place now. I’m gonna miss you for sure. Through all of these 20 years we knew each other and spent all that time making music and dancing. Through thick and thin, through no one showing up to dance, endless conversations, wine, women and song. Playing to empty rooms, playing to sold out rooms, I’m gonna miss you. Brings a tear to my eyes. You were the anchor for music when no one was playing.
Thank you for the 20 years my friend. Thank you for the countless nights of great dancing. Thank you, thank you, thank you….what great taste you have….in Cuban time,
Tres mojitos.


Thank you James.
It was a pleasure and we the community will always remember you and your wishes and will towards the goals which allowed so many to enjoy life and dancing.
Gracias amigo nos vemos en el cielo de el más allá.
Abrazos fuertes


I wish for all of you who want to return to what was once a playground,
to return to the playground.
It seems as though we are in this situation for another year.
There is of course the governmentally imposed sanctioning against our Culture, Life, Liberty and the Persuit of Happiness and the right to refuse service to anyone.
There is also the bio and psycho warfare and indoctrination to a greater disservice, by getting the vast amount of people,
Not to trust each other again.
Things will never be the same.
Couples dancing may be something of the past at least for the near future.
We all have situations with those whom we can, do and may trust.
So in a clandestine manner as we became the victims of prohibition.
I urge you to begin a slow and protracted and careful beginning,
towards the end.
As I used to say, The Best Is Yet To Come...!
We are as strong as our weakest link.
Your skill level should never be a factor in wanting to and
getting out to dance. They can take our culture, but they can never take
our dancing shoes.
God bless you all


Riddle me this
What is culture, without the culture?

Nacha Mendez on Museum Hill - Postcards from Santa Fe

It’s official tonight at 7.
Thanx and let me know what you think

The "Postcards from Santa Fe" series features vignettes of our favorite musicians performing at iconic locations from our beautiful and unique city. Feel fre...


Yes! And yes! Finally a sense of relief and things moving in the right boogie?!


Nacha asked Shannon and I to dance for the filming of Post Cards with Nacha, Carla and Melanie.
Man, this was fun and thank you Nacha. There will be 9 other Post Cards as far as I undersrand.
Nacha also thought it would be cool to play at Museum Hill Cafe. I think the grand terrace there will provide plenty of social dancing distances. Unless you and your partner have already cleared the air between you. Looking forward to our culture returning now. More news as the project evolves. Keep smilin

Nice! Something to look forward to....

Coming May 22 2020!
Our new album "Tempestad" brings together everything that make Nohe & Sus Santos such a distinctive Latinx act.

The four-piece band incorporates alt-rock en espanol, quirky cumbia and indie pop grooves (and beyond!). It is soulful, passionate and possesses a good dose of attitude.

Celebrated Honduran vocalist Nohelia Sosa completes a group of fabulosos musicians that can only be described as excitingly fresh, with a style that is all its own.

Tempestad consists of 8 original compositions along with 2 classic songs interpreted by The Santos. With songs about love, loss, and healing, Tempestad refers to the storm of life and the cleansing that happens when the tempest has passed.


Seems as though the panic has come to the dance floor and our beloved dancing, bands, music and fun is coming to an end. All the cancellations ending our culture. Incredible, since at this time the state has no diagnosed cases. No toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies, etc. people with giant shopping carts over flowing with stuff. Fat people buying up multiple shopping carts. What next? No dancing anywhere of course. I haven’t seen empty shelves at the store since I was in Peru in 1974-75. Cumbia was the rage back then. People, get a grip. This is exactly how they want you to act. Fear! How are musicians and all those who depend on the dancing scene and venues supposed to endure. When will they close restaurants, grocery stores, public sites, hotels, the Lensic and Opera, All events of public concern, libraries, gov. buildings, vacation rentals, tourism, schools of all types, etc. and all the spring and summer events all over?! This isn’t just Santa Fe, this in everywhere. This state isn’t rich enough to take on such an economic hit over how many months. This is really crazy. I’m sorry for what’s happening. Truly sorry to see this.
I have to add that when this kind of thing happens, big father (forget big brother) is applying the cloak and dagger. There is definitely someting of great magnitude happeing in a nefarious way somewhere sponsored by big father and we are being made to look else where. Its how they have been doing it for hundreds of years. Just like the recessions and depressions all over the world not just in this country. Wonder what it is that makes you look another way, along the way to nowhere, when it’s all over and then think, what was that all about anyways. It will be in a tiny story, a tiny column on the back page of the NYTimes in a few months

Ooo, strictly on a bad night of no one to ask or when she’s in the ladies room.
I will be waiting, anticipating, watching, thinking.....of how she moves in the night.
Sensual, masterful, intelligence in heels

For everyone to be in prosperity, all the forms of prosperity.
A new decade, year and a new opportunity to make everything, everyone inspired.
Think about what comes out of your mouth, how you listen, what way you continue to profess anything but the goodness, and stand up to yourself and create something new!
Bailamos con pasion e inspiracion

Tito Einstein : "We dance for laughter, we dance for tears, we dance for madness, we dance for fears, we dance for hopes, we dance for screams, we are the dancers, we create the dreams."
My man, Alberto Einstein ! Ya ves ? Nunca sabes a quien le encanta bailar !


That was a blast at Tumbleroot with Nosotros and Manzanares!
The joy of what it is. Come dance and enjoy wholesome fun, where men and women treat each other as they should, lots of boogie, body work and soul food. Learn a new skill for the quality of life and a quality of/for your mind and longevity. What every therapist says, a physical, non-competitive, non-sexual, sweaty activity two can share and do together. As well as supporting the local live music scene, establishments and musicians. Keeps you looking young/younger. When you can say, “I have never smiled so much in my life”. When ten, twenty years later people think you’re still a kid. When your younger sibling has more wrinkles than you. It’s all in fun, don’t take it so seriously! Push your envelope. Keep smiling, ‘cause Santa is looking!
