"Pinche Pompadours" DJ mix - 50's/60's Rock n' Roll & Rockabilly for grabs!!

I've always been a fan of 50's/60's Rock n' Roll, Rockabilly, big band, and old skool Jazz music as well as the fashion from those times (pictures to left: Amylu @ 22yrs. Top: photo by Annick Rosenfield for Pin-Up NYC magazine and Bottom: Photo taken at a Rockabilly show in 2005).

In college I had a jazz radio show called "Cat Jazz" where I was able to explore the world of Jazz from around the world. I realized that Jazz was in a lot of different styles of music in different forms and languages from Japanese, Spanish, French, English, etc. I was obsessed / in LOVE with it and still am today!

In celebration of Spring and the fact that I wanted to share more happiness with ya'll I've created a very special DJ mix called "Pinche Pompadours" - 50's/60's Rock n' Roll & Rockabilly in Spanish and English. The artwork is by the talented Joshua De Leon from California. (Very special thanks to Joshua and Rogelio Jr).

I'm sure this mix will have you snapping your fingers and maybe even shakin' your culo while making scrambled huevos in the morning! Enjoy chavitos!! XOXO
