CHIHUAHUA DESERT- Borderline Fiesta, Traditional Country Western Music, and More!
Escape to the musical stylings of Chihuahua Desert, and experience the best Borderline Fiesta and western music around! Dry gultched on The Oregon Trail and left for dead, Western and Cantina Trubador Mark Cash and his pack of gnarly Chihuahuas are probably the greatest fiesta band that nobody has ever heard of… despite riding their burros through 8 Western States for over 200 senior communities, numerous casinos and ski resorts, concerts in the park series, county fairs and festivals, wine shops and breweries, corporate parties, and weddings!
Ingenious miners of American and Mexican iconic musicians like Van Sant of Ft. Worth, Jimenez of Dolores Hidalgo, Freddy Fender of The Rio Grande, The Man-In-Black from rural Arkansas and the Tioga Twins, Autry and Travis, Chihuahua Desert is refreshing ,colorful fun, and humble. Heck, their gritty story songs alone are enough to bring the armadillos to their knees!
