Burque Music Scene: Fernando Ortega

What I am finding so wonderful about musicians past and present in Albuquerque's music scene, is that it encompasses so many genres.  Fernando Ortega is a singer-songwriter of adult contemporary Christian music.  He was born and raised in the North Valley and graduated from Valley High School.  His brother was in the wildly popular …

I was only acting!

I’ve never aspired to be an actor on stage or in the movies, not even secretly.  Acting is just one of those things that was never a dream of mine.  I don’t have a fantasy Oscar speech tucked away somewhere and have never even thought of what I would say if I won an Academy Award.  

Recently I worked with a troupe of Latina women,…

Hey Colorado, back off!

OK, let's just get this straight.  New Mexico has the best green chile in the world.  Is there any doubt about that?  If so, can Colorado really compete with the green deliciousness that we are so famous for?…

Burque Music Scene: The Planets

From what I've been told, The Planets were THE band in town to see.  I am fortunate that friend John Cline has written a little biography of the band.  Here is what he posted on Vintage Bands of Albuquerque's Facebook page:

 "The Planets was formed in…

Burque Music Scene: Joanie Cere

Joanie Cere has one of those voices that when you hear it, you don't forget it.  I wrote about Joanie and her BIG voice back in 2008.  Her voice only seems to get bigger and better with time - you could say time is on her side!

From her bio on the Joanie and Combo…

Burque Music Scene: Floozy

Cool is the word when describing Floozy.  Not only do they write cool songs, but also cover unexpected songs in a cool way. I am a bonafide member of Floozy Nation!  Formerly a trio and now a duo, the band is Bronson Elliott on guitar, drums, spoons, dance (Latin), vocals and Tanya Nunez on upright bass, dance…

Burque Music Scene: Frank McCulloch y Sus Amigos

I adore Frank McCulloch Sr.  I have known him and his family since I was a first grader at Alvarado Elementary School when I went to school with Frank Jr.  Frank Sr. is a cultural treasure in this city and the state.  Not only is he one of my favorite painters, but one of the coolest musicians around.  He celebrates his New Mexican heritage both musically and…

Burque Music Scene: Femme Fatale

The hair.  Oh that 80s hair!  My best buddy Pete and I would head to Graham Central Station or one of the other top 40 clubs in town and dance all night to Babe Ruthless.  Lead singer Lorraine Lewis was a powerhouse singer with energy and sex appeal to drive the…

Let's just talk about Hillary Smith.  Have you ever heard a voice so powerful, so soulful, so seductive, that the second you hear it the goosebumps just pop up all over your body?  If you've heard Hillary sing, you know exactly what I am talking about. 

Hillary has one of those one-in-a-million voices that transcends all genres.  Whether belting out the…
