We’re very excited to announce that we’re officially part of the Western Canadian Music Awards BreakOut West Festival in Whitehorse, Yukon this October. We’re hopping on a plane at the end of October for 4 days in the beautiful mountains up north! It’s a dream come true for us to attend the awards, with the added bonus of visiting one of Canada’s most beautiful locations. Here’s how you can help us get there:
Join the Song of the Month Club
We post a ‘live’ song every month on our website, which you can download for $1/mo. Sometimes the songs are from concerts. Other times from rehearsals (hear someone laughing in the background as all the music falls on the floor). Another time it could be while we’re in the car on the road. This month’s song is called “Whitehorse, Land of the Midnight Sun“. We wrote it to the tune of “El cuarto de Tula”, a famous Cuban standard, but changed the words to fit with our Yukon quest. You can see a video of the song, along with the lyrics on YouTube.
Come to our show
Send us off to the Yukon by joining us for a show at Aqua Books on Friday, October 14. All the proceeds will go towards our flights to the Yukon (anything extra goes towards dog sledding!). Book a reservation in the delicious Eat! Bistro, and get first dibs on seats for the show. Aqua Books will be closing its doors soon after this performance, so come say goodbye to a great arts venue and your friendly neighborhood Latin trio.

Now, it’s time to start writing a song about waiting in an airport…
