Local home-grown talent

Our local Presidio High School tuba phenom, Uriel Uranga, just made Texas All State Band for the third time. That would be like The Resonators playing for the President's inaugural ball! Uriel comes stright outta good ole Presidio and he has accomplished a feat that may never be repeated again in Presidio, ever. And what a nice kid! He's never had a problem with his head fitting through the door, plus he makes damn-good grades, too. Let's hope that he spreads the love at college next year. Felicidades, Uriel!

And while we're talking about the next generation, it's getting close to the time when Molly and Max will take the stage with The Resonators. Molly's got some pipes, while Max is scary creative. This won't be a novelty; 100% business.

Stay tuned.

Happy New Year!

Wow, what a night we had in Presidio, Texas on New Year's Eve! It was The Resonators' fifth gig together to ring in a new year, but by far, the best. The Sta. Teresa Church Committee did a fantastic job selling out every seat in the hall, plus the headliners--Generacion X--rocked! The party finally ended a little after 2:00 AM, with everyone getting 2009 off to a really fun start.

The Resonators will play a private party in Alpine, Texas for one of our dearest fans on Valentine's Day. It will take place at the newly-renovated Granada Theatre, so it should be a terrific party at a really promising venue.

For further information on upcoming gigs, stay tuned!
