ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Celebrating their 40th anniversary, TIERRA’s invigorating blend of R & B, Latin and Pop was the precursor to many Hispanic artists. TIERRA, named “Best Rhythm and Blues Vocal Group” by Billboard Cashbox, Record World, and BRE (Black Radio Exclusive), as the first Hispanic act to have four songs on the national pop charts, and two songs simultaneously in the top 100. Leader of the band, Rudy Salas holds the foundation of the group strong as he leads TIERRA into the new millenium. With their new CD, "On the Right Track", this is one band that will not stop!http://www.tierramusic.com http://www.youtube.com/user/TierraMusic

Dakila was a San Francisco band composed mostly of Filipino-Americans. Their only album, Dakila, was released in 1972, recorded in San Mateo and released by Epic Records. After many years of requests by different organizations and fans to bring the music of "Dakila" back, one of the original members, David Bustamante, felt compelled to try and organize some performances. Don’t miss the return of this epic band!https://www.facebook.com/dakila1972
Puro Bandido was instrumental in the development of Border Rock - crossing all borders; having no boundaries. Their sound is a combination of old school and new sounds created by a combination of driving percussion, an incomparable rhythm section and vocals to match.http://www.reverbnation.com/purobandidohttp://us.myspace.com/purobandidosf
