Charanga Cakewalk and Patricia Vonne Perform

Charanga Cakewalk and Patricia Vonne will perform at the Continental Club on Friday, July 24, 2009. Both are Austin's favorite local performers and the Continental is Austin's favorite club.

If you're familiar with Charanga Cakewalk and Patricia Vonne, then I really don't have to say any more.

If you're not familiar with either one let me tell you about them.

Charanga Cakewalk is lead by Michael Ramos, and recently added Brian Ramos of Kanko, a local Austin band. Both individuals, along with the band members, make exceptional music. If you're from the area, you can describe their sound as a combination of Mexican Cumbia, Mexican Folk, Lounge music. I provided a video below to give you a better sense of the Charange Cakewalk "experience." Rock y Roll Radio has seen Charanga Cakewalk numerous times, recently at both Pachanga Latino Music Festivals, 2008 and 2009, and at the One World Theater, as the opening act for Bajofondo. Once you get the Charanga fever, you can't shake it off. You'll know you have the fever when your feet involuntarily start to dance and your body starts to sway at the sound of Charanga Calkwalk music.

I'm not the only fan of Charanga Cakewalk. The other day I was catching up on LatinoUSA podcasts on my iPod and Maria Hinojosa stated that she had Michael Ramos on her iPod while traveling in Chile. I thought to myself, Maria has excellent taste.

Patricia Vonne is also an exceptional singer and musician. She sings both in English and Spanish and mixes Tex-Mex, rock-a-billy and Flamenco into songs with a story. Her voice is sultry and mesmerizing at the same time. I'm sorry to say I haven't seen Patricia as often as I would like to but when I do catch her show it certainly is a treat. I've also provided a video so that you can get a sense of Patricia Vonne's music and style.
