ZOZOBRA WATCH PARTY
It's time to cast out out the summer's darkness and despair at our Zozobra Watch Party. Never has the world had more gloom that needs burning! Join us at HIPICO for the only chance to experience Zozobra with a large crowd of people in a safe way. Live music from Northern New Mexico bands Cuarenta y Cinco and Severo y Grupo Fuego will lead up to streaming the burning of Old Man Gloom on our large video screens. Zozobra will stream on the screens starting at 9 PM.
CUARENTA Y CINCO
Cuarenta y Cinco is one of New Mexico's top groups and has been since its start in 1991. The traditional sound of New Mexico is what people think of when they hear Cuarenta y Cinco play its upbeat music. Known for its high energy dance music, Cuarenta y Cinco has long ruled northern New Mexico and been a favorite of many people throughout the southwest. Cuarenta y Cinco has had much success by the blend of rancheras, cumbias, balses, boleros, country/western, oldies and modern rock they perform. The ability of the band to go from hard core rancheras to country to rock and back again is what makes them one of New Mexico's best known variety bands. The ability to get airplay from their seven albums is what has kept them a permanent New Mexico fixture over the years and a powerhouse when it comes to a loyal fan base. With over 25-plus years under its belt, Cuarenta y Cinco has a proven formula for success and will be a force in New Mexico as long as there is a market for good New Mexico dance music.
SEVERO Y GRUPO FUEGO
Celebrating 10 years in 2020, award-winning group Severo y Grupo Fuego bring a high-energy show to every stage they perform on. With the fusion of Mexican and Puerto Rican upbringings, Severo y Grupo Fuego has had a successful career in the Latin music scene, bringing traditional Latin music to the public while incorporating their influences to this music genre. Their pride, passion, and drive shine every minute they are on stage. The Albuquerque Journal called Severo "not only a musician, but also an all-around entertainer that will have everyone up and dancing."
In 2020, Severo y Grupo Fuego will release their 7th highly anticipated studio album, Pura Vida.
AL HURRICANE JR.
Al Hurricane Jr. was born to Alberto Nelson Sanchez (Al Hurricane) and Nettie M. Fleming on October 30, 1959, in Albuquerque. "Hurricane" is a nickname inherited from his father. During his career, Al Jr. has acquired many nicknames, including El Joven, The Godson of New Mexico, and Berb. He was only 14 when he recorded his first song, "El Pintor," and he performed with his dad's band for 30 years. Al Jr. was also a main musician on his father's recordings, supplying trumpet, valve trombone, keyboards, keyboard bass, and programmed drums. When Al Jr. made his first recordings in the Hurricane Studios in Albuquerque, it was on the very equipment that Buddy Holly used in Clovis, NM.
