Best Band - 2003
Readers' Choice: Trey Clark
Every Chango Jackson show is different. Sometimes they wear pimp clothes and other times chemical suits. Lately, they've taken to hurling out free tamales from the stage while they roar a tribute to the pre-Columbian snack. Musically they are like no other band on earth: a jazzy, post-punk blend of metal and classic rock, with almost exclusively Spanish lyrics. On their upcoming self-released CD, their sound is even more diverse, as various guests drop in to step up the jazz leanings here, the other stuff there. Already, Chango Jackson is winning fans on both sides of the border, and we expect that trend to continue for many years to come.
