Carrizozo Music celebrates the 4th of July. From 4:30-6:30, Paul Pino and the Tone Daddies will perform original New Mexican music on the porch of the Carrizozo Woman’s Club. Bring a lawn chair, grab a rib dinner with all the fixings from the Woman’s Club annual fundraising bbq, and join us for an evening of celebration. After the Portico Concert, move on to Valle del Sol with La Ultima playing at the gazebo prior to the fireworks.

The band includes lead guitar Joe Noriega, who extensively has toured the West Coast, drummer Harold Montoya who started playing professionally with Al Hurricane at age 12, and Greg Martinez winner of many awards as a Christian studio musician.
