Santa Fe Bandstand Presents
Rock and Roll Covers | Funk
Chango has had audiences dancing for over 3 years now with a blend of Great songs, high-energy shows and deft musicianship delivered with a sense of humor and a sound that is uniquely Chango. Fueled by the guitar-shredding wizardry of Greg Lopez, the sexy vocals of multi-instrumentalist Andrew Primm, 3 time NM Mic award winner Micah Chappell on drums and the 5 string prowess of bassist James Griego. The four native Santa Feans in this current line-up of the locally beloved Chango has been called “La Verdad” the truth…or the real deal by their peers of other musicians, bands, and bar owners. Always fun and engaging, with tunes you know and love from back in the day-to songs that dropped just last week-slip under the covers with Santa Fe’s Premier and only cover band Chango!
They’ve been kicking ass at private parties, winning a 2013 New Mexico Music Award for best R&B song with “Makin’ Love in Outerspace,” appearing at gatherings like the After Hours Alliance Festival and slowly but surely writing originals that have yet to be unleashed upon the public—they’re funk act The Sticky, and they rule the land.
“We’re putting together a real show and that’s something that very few people do [in Santa Fe],” vocalist Amy Lindquist says. “It’s like a full performance without the dinner.”
