In 2008 I flew by myself from Holland to see this. When I got to the Avalon some people asked whether I was at the right place :-). Made some friends with some latinos when they figured out I knew all the music the DJ was playing prior to the show. We had a blast.
When the music started I dreamed away to a place I never expected to become ever accessible again. It was outright MAGIC.
The band playing these Sapo and Jorge Santana songs (even though Richard Bean claims it was all his work!) with such joy and energy. I wished it would go on all night.
I remember leaving really late back to San Francisco and rented a car without navigation and ended up back at my small hotel when the sun came up. I played one more song and fall asleep as the happiest man in the world.
What a gift to share this video with everyone. This music deserves to be heard by many. Thanks for producing this. You made me very happy again watching it.
