Del Castillo Live At The Vine St. Lounge in Hollywood

Posted in Main Blog (All Posts) on October 12th, 2006 8:24 am by HL

I was reading my good friend Bartcops site site a couple of days ago when I saw his posting that one of his favorite bands, whom also happen to be friends Del Castillo, would be playing at the Vine St. Lounge in Hollywood, which is only about a 10 minute walk from H.L. Headquarters. Bart has been raving about these guys for a long time, and was thinking of having them play at a future Poker and Tequilafest in Austin Texas which is where Del Castillo is from. Bart used to own a couple of night clubs in Tulsa, and Del Castillo played at them way back. These guys played the music on the Kill Bill soundtrack, so they have become famous in that respect.
Got to the Vine St. Lounge a few minutes before the show, A nice crowd for a Tuesday night of about 150 people were there. A couple of minutes later the band came out. Del Castillo plays a Spanish style acoustic rock with the 2 brother Rick, and Mark Del Castillo sitting on stools and trading riffs on their acoustics.

As Bart says both these guys are awesome guitar players. During the songs they would take turns, one would play lead while the other strummed chords and played rhythm, they kept switching back and forth and were really getting into it. These guys have been playing together for at least 30 years since they were kids, and know each other so well that one knows what the other is thinking. The band also has a great drummer, Conga player and singer. The show lasted a little over an hour and was excellent. I can’t wait to see the Kill Bill movies again, so I can check them out on the soundtrack. Quentin Tarantino rules afterall. Pulp Fiction is one of my favorite movies ever. Anyway the show was great. Bart, you should definitely get these guys to play, at the Austin Tequilafest. I didn’t get to meet the band as I had to run out right after the show. Still I had a great time.
