Dave (the accordian player) and I were born in Aluquerque and grew up in the south valley.
I listened to music constantly growing up. Every possible opportunity was spent practicing, listening, and pushing the fear back to get up and try new things.
Santa Fe calls our music Zydejano which is a fusion of new orleans Zydeco and texan/northern mexican ranchero music. We call it Burqueno Blues, gypsy jazz, southwestern honky-tonk, to keep it short: Americana. We just play what comes to us in the moment and when we are playing we aren't thinking at all about what it is called.
