Speaking Spanish on TV

Last weekend at the Miami Music Festival with Delexilio was an absolute blast; we played some great gigs and met some incredible bands.  Beyond enjoying the sun and city’s Latin blend, I was thrilled to be able to spout out a few words of Spanish when Telemundo’s Mariana Rodriguez interviewed us live on Acceso Total:

Later the same day, I pretended to be cool on comedian Alexis Valdes’ show Esta Noche Tu Night while I could hardly understand his Cuban accent.

In the ensuing interview, though, Delexilio frontman David Sandoval took the lead as he spoke about “Cell Phones for Cuba“, a nonprofit run by Raices de Esperanza (“Roots of Hope”) that aims to help the people of Cuba get connected.

After our show Friday night at Transit Lounge, we met with Isabel Betancourt, who wrote a great article (in English) for TheCelebrityCafe.com. I promise I said “persecuted”, and not “prosecuted”.

Vos nokh? With Delexilio, I’ll be playing at NUBLU in NYC on December 9. In the meantime I’m working on finishing producing some EPs for some promising artists, playing at CD release with Abby Bernstein (on whose new record I appeared on bass) and MDing a joint show between 2 of my favorite people who happen to also sing the highest: Carrie Manolakos and Morgan Karr.

Happy t-day, y’all.
