BLUES & ARTS - Musician Spotlight


5th Annual International Blues &Arts Fiesta 2011 ~ Musician Spotlight

Look right here for regular news about the show's musicians and artists. This week Javier Batiz is our featured musical talent. And showmen don't get any better than our returning friend, the world class Javier Batiz.

Master guitarist, Javier Batiz, and his red hot band, hail from Tijuana, B.C., Mexico where he still lives in the house where he was born. As his legion of fans know, Javier doesn’t play stereotypical Latin music but rather delivers a pulsing and inclusive style which just burns up the stage. Widely known as the “Godfather of Mexican Rock”, Javier has helped many other musicians get their start in the business ~~ all in the Batiz family house in Tijuana. The legendary Carlos Santana gives credit to Javier, in print and on stage, that Batiz is the reason this Grammy Award Winning guitarist decided to play guitar! Oozing charisma and charm, Javier Batiz' appearance at the San Felipe 2011 Blues & Arts Fiesta will mark his second appearance ~ and is back by popular demand. Local San Felipe music aficionados know that Javier also headlined a sold out fundraiser concert this past October for the Cruz Roja or local Red Cross. By all accounts that show was over-the-top entertainment in addition to helping the San Felipe community. So besides being a great musical entertainer, Javier is truly a man with a big heart to match that mega-watt smile and smokin' guitar.
