The lineup is always changing, but here’s the scoop on a few of our returning artists.

Alex Maryol

Alex MaryolThe son of Greek-American restaurateurs, Alex Maryol grew up in Santa Fe surrounded by a lively artistic and cultural landscape. Raised on the music of Chuck Berry, Fats Domino and Elvis Presley, he began songwriting during his teenage years while performing at smoky bars and coffee shops in downtown Santa Fe. While primarily influenced by blues greats such as Lightning Hopkins and Buddy Guy during these years, Alex maintained a love for all musical genres from classical to grunge. In his early twenties Alex gained notoriety by performing as a blues act at festival favorites such as the Telluride Blues and Brews Festival and the King Biscuit Blues Festival. These years of working in the blues laid a solid foundation for him to expand his ideas in other fields of music.

Keith Sanchez

KeiBand-KeithSanchezth has gained tremendous notoriety as a mesmerizing singer/guitarist, performer and songwriter. His music has been distributed throughout the United States, garnering a #1 charting song on the national Rock en Español R&R charts, and he’s been featured on major network shows such as The Shield on FX, and MTV Español International.

Keith was the principal performer and Music Director for Carlos Santana’s Maria Maria Restaurants throughout California and the southwest. Now performing and writing as a solo artist he showcases his reinvented sound laced with rootsy rock, soulful blues, latino groove, artful singer-songwriter reflection, and a healthy dash of pop.

The Tumbleweeds

Band-TumbleweedsThe Tumbleweeds play the timeless southwestern sounds of Western swing, honky tonk and traditional country that gets folks dancing and feeling good. This Albuquerque band plays the music of Bob Wills, Ray Price, Ernest Tubb and Hank Williams with fresh energy that honors a classic sound.

Featuring Jordan Ripley’s jazz-era vocals, Joe Carter’s bluesy fiddle, Byron Ripley’s twangy guitar and Dave Klaus’s rock solid bass.

Le Chat Lunatique

Band-LeChatLunatiqueAs unpredictable, fearless, and entertaining as their namesake, Le Chat Lunatique purveys an addictive genre they call “filthy, mangy jazz,” a signature sound that makes you want to smoke and drink too much—if only you could get off the dance floor. Le jazz hot of Django Reinhardt and Stéphane Grappelli is their north star, but they use that beacon to navigate through a wide range of genres, blending Western swing, classical, reggae, d00-wop, and “anything else we damn well please” into strikingly original compositions and audaciously reworked standards alike.

Their irreverent humor, their intensity, and their expert musicianship will soon win them your acclamation as the best time you’ve ever had in public with your clothes on.

The Fabulous Martini-Tones

Since the summer of 2005, The FabulouBand-MartiniToness Martini-Tones have been performing their unique blend of exotic-surf lounge music with a mid-century style. The aim of the Martini-Tones is to charm and intrigue their listeners with music that is unusual yet familiar.

The sound of the Fabulous Martini-Tones is probably best described as instrumental lounge music that draws from cool jazz, 60’s surf guitar, exotica and space-age pop. A Martini-Tone performance is as laid-back or upbeat as the mood of the venue or occasion calls for.
