Joe King Carrasco & Border Soul at Louie Louie Rock Estepona: The King of Tex-Mex arrives, a devilish mix of Mexican corridos, European folklore brought by emigrants and the influence of rock & roll. Pure dynamite Austin (Tx) to be able to stop dancing. The musical legend of Texas, is a true troubadour with an illustrious career of more than 4 decades. He has played with many greats and his songs have been recorded by great artists, such as Texas Tornados and Mano Negra / Manu Chao. The last one, the great Michael Jackson, even sang on his album “Do not Let A Woman (Make A Fool Out Of You)”! Joe King creates a stylistic border area of pop, rock and Latin rhythms.
And he does not come alone. On this occasion he is accompanied by no less than Border Soul.  Single ticket € 10.   https://louielouierockbar.com/2018/09/02/joe-king-carrasco-border-soul-el-rey-del-tex-mex-en-louie-louie-rock-live-estepona/ & https://www.facebook.com/louielouierockbar/

AAR: “Axarquia Animal Rescue (AAR), is a charity, (no. 10567 Spain), manned solely by unpaid volunteers, that rescues abandoned and mistreated animals in the Axarquia region. We do not have a holding kennels, so when an animal comes into our care, we have to find foster carers for them, until our caseworkers can find them their permanent home. The role of the foster carer is therefore vital to our work and we are always seeking more of these wonderful people to care for our ever increasing workload. If you can help us, please contact Tracy Della, Torre del Mar, on axarquia-rescue@hotmail.com.
