Paloma Negra performed during the inauguration of Reynoso Galeria in Sacramento. Hundreds of people walked through the gallery, enjoyed the art work from artists like Ivan Rubio, Leonardo Ceballos and Gustavo Reynoso, among others. Visitors enjoyed wonderful food and drinks and of course, our music!
Thank you, Gus for putting this hot party together. Your gallery is way too cool.
Paloma Negra is busy these days. So many more amazing performances coming up such as The Fleet Feet's Shamrock’n Half-Marathon in Old Sacramento on March 16 at 8:00 a.m. Thank you Brian Fischer for all the help with bookings. And a wonderful event everyone should attend at Zocalo's on March 31 for the Sacramento International Film Festival's after party. Please check out their website under "Festival Guide" and "Special Events" for screenings and after parties.
Also, stay tuned and visit Paloma Negra's web page for upcoming shows, videos, sound files and news- and of course, the date for our CD Release Party.
