Video #93 of 1000 – Tequila Mockingbird Orchestra. Recorded live at the Rio Theatre on June 26, 2012 in HD (1080p on XA10).

I keep saying – “It’s hard to describe music in the age of cross pollination; where do you begin with the definitions when one minute a song starts in a tango, builds up with African Rhythms, hooks you with some gypsy-roots-grass riffs, and pours out psychedelic waves of sound walls to a crisp finish. Call it folk. Call it fusion. Call it gypsy-roots-folk-tango-afro-psychadelic-soul-music. Or forget about the definitions and just enjoy one hell of a good show…. TMO opened for Ceu on this night.
