    1. Caught the 2nd half of Domingo’s band performance tonight, before a large crowd at Geronimo Plaza. He performs guitar with two other guitarists, plus drummer and violinist. Mostly instrumentals with a few vocals. Don’t think I would call this jazz music at all, more modern Spanish influence. Next group up in two weeks, always free.
