A song that no one would expect you to love”

By now, I am sure that you all recognize that there is not really anything too out there that I would not enjoy to some extent. But I really love Spanish Music. So here is a little fun fact about me… well something pertaining to me. My dad used to be in a very popular band in El Paso, TX called “River City Band.” In fact, they even at one point were nominated for the Tejano Music Awards. They even played shows that THE Selena Quintanilla opened up for back when she was not famous. They were so good that they won several awards and even got offered a record deal. Unfortunately, some of the members decided it was not the path they wanted to take, and my dad had to move away for work shortly after and that was that. But my dad still to this day plays in bands because what can I say? Music runs through our veins. Although, River City Band now is nothing compared to what it used to be, this song is one that I hold dear to me. It is from my dad’s former band. I forgot to mention he is the lead singer and one of the sax players. He is the reason for my love of music and determination to follow my dreams to one day be the lead singer of a band and create beautiful music.
