True to form, Del Castillo rocked the audience Saturday night May 27 2006 at Stubb's Bar-B-Que in Austin. The band which is currently under contract to Bill Ham's "Lone Wolf Productions", the Texas agency that handles ZZ TOP, among others, is on an extensive US tour showcasing their unique brand of rock music.
Led by brothers Rick and Mark Del Castillo, the band dishes up a plate full of steaming Tex-Mex style Rock Music. An amazing rhythm section consisting of drummer Mike Zeoli, percussionist Reverend Rick Holman, and former "to die for lead guitarist" , now on bass guitar, Albert Besteiro provide an amaizing and rare, solid foundation for the Del Castillo Brothers to showcase their incredible virtuoso guitar pickin' talent. Legendary lead vocalist and frontman Alex Ruiz tops off this ensemble with a stage presence that is honest, invigorating and passionate.
If you get a chance to catch this band live...well..............

FEB 2006: Hats Off to Chuck Berry ! The 79 year old "Father of Rock & Roll" brought his totally authentic music to Austin last week. And "DUCK WALKED" across the stage twice! He even took a piano solo. And talk about spankin the plank. There is none other. He used 2 late 60's silver face Fender Dual Showmans with what looked to be a Gibson ES 335. No reverb. no effects, no pedals. Just 200 watts of pure Fender Tube tone.. Amazing
Also going on!
I've added several new videos to the RibTicklinVideos website, including a new Swartzenegger on Conan OBrien as well as an appearance by Saddam Hussein. Also, a brand new video from Mad TV's Bobby Lee, in the role of "Tank". Freakin hilarious, truly RT!
