Jasso & Garcia
Just got back from The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano for a night of great music. I bought tickets for Donovan Frankenreiter, and he was good. But the two guys that opened for him, Jasso and Garcia, blew him out of the water with their talent. I love musicians that have passion, talent and are not arrogant. You could tell these guys were real.
Jasso's vocal range is off the charts. I just sat their wondering why he's not famous. They did a cover of Light My Fire that was incredible...it was slow, acoustic and included castanets that rocked. I know what you're thinking: castanets don't rock...but I swear the way this guy played them, they did. Unfortunately they don't have that cover on their CD, but I am buying it anyhow. So, these guys are my new favorite local talent!
I would not classify them as classic rock, but its an honor to review them on my blog. I can't wait to see them live again.
