Bo Brown:
Rising country music star and a veteran of the New Mexico country music scene, Bo, - who is the son of the late New Mexican Spanish and country music legend Freddie Brown - began his music career at the ripe old age of 12 after winning a talent show in Phoenix, AZ singing George Strait's "The Fireman". He went on to pay his dues playing throughout New Mexico and the Southwest and, after stints in LA and San Francisco, returning to his roots. Bo will be performing songs - all self-penned - from his new Rema Records CD Believe.

Steven Michael Quezada
Steven has gained national recognition in his recurring role as "Gomez" on AMC's locally-produced, Emmy-award winning, hit television show, Breaking Bad. A true entertainment renaissance man, he is a playwright, an actor, a producer and 5-time winner of New Mexico Hispanic Entertainers Association (NMHEA) Comedian of the Year Award that has been making people laugh throughout the Southwest since 1987 with his unique Chicano-style of humor.

Richard Smith

There seems to be no limit to Richard's ability to quickly master whatever guitar style captures his fancy. He has toured around the world, surprising audiences everywhere with his genius, showcasing a repertoire spanning an incredible range of musical styles from country, bluegrass, mainstream jazz, modern pop and rock, to classical guitar.
