Concert: Armando Ortega & Wagogo

Tonight is a special night at Outpost honoring one of New Mexico's most prolific and unique musical artists, Armando Ortega. Inspired by "the dance groove music with a positive message," he founded Wagogo in 1993, which features an eclectic group of musicians that stir up a rhythmic cocktail out of their Chicano influences, Northern Mexico folk songs, warm calypso island grooves, and the captivating spirit music of Zimbabwe with lyrics in Spanish, English, and the Shona language of Zimbabwe. Tonight, Ortega will present a set of some of his songs from his introspective/country years, followed by a set with Wagogo. It's Armando Ortega, guitar & vocals; Raymond Thomas, guitar & vocals; Nick Baker, drums & vocals; Brian Shonerd, bass & vocals; Ryan Bridwell, keyboard & vocals.
