Life In Two Bands With Mariachi El Bronx

Life In Two Bands With Mariachi El Bronx

The best things about being in The Bronx and Mariachi El Bronx.

With an Australia tour just announced around their Bluesfest 2015 appearance (all dates down the bottom) and their brand new album Mariachi El Bronx (III) due for release on Friday 7 November, Ken Horne from the group decided to fill us in on all the good parts about being in two bands at the same time. If there's any bad points, we don't know them, but we do know the following, which you can check out after streaming their new single, Wildfires.

TOP 5 THINGS ABOUT BEING IN TWO BANDS AT ONCE

1) It's fun to switch up totally different styles of music. Punk and Mariachi are are two different ends of the musical spectrum.

2) The touring opportunities are so varied! One day we can be playing a punk dive in Germany, and the next day we can be playing on the beaches of Cancun! One Australian tour at Brisbane’s Crowbar and the next at Bluesfest!

3) Playing/trying/discovering different instruments for each The Bronx and Mariachi El Bronx. MEB features vihuela, guitar, bajo sexto, accordion, jarana, drums, various percussion, guitarron, requinto jaracho, violein, harp and more.

4) More opportunities to play in different environments. 

5) More the merrier!!
