    Episode 109: Dan Cervantes

    Episode 109: Dan Cervantes

    Episode 109 features Dan Cervantes of the San Diego band, Mrs. Henry.
    Mrs. Henry and Dan just wrapped up a jam-packed 2019. Last August, the band released Mrs. Henry Presents The Last Waltz, a three-LP recording of their performance of The Last Waltz at The Belly Up in November of 2017. The performance features some of San Diego’s most notable musicians, (members of The Schizophonics, Sacri Monti and Louise XIV), and took months of both planning and preparation. The band also documented the entire event through a documentary showing the preparation involved and the entire concert. Tune in to hear all about the events leading up to the concert, their decision to record and document it, and the delicate balance between mimicking the original event and putting Mrs. Henry’s own spin on it.

    Mrs. Henry is also about to release Live At The Cashbah, a recording of their performance at the legendary San Diego venue on the night of its 30th anniversary. Dan also just released a brand new solo single called “Keep On Walking,” under his solo moniker, Dude Cervantes. The episode kicks off with “Keep On Walking” and features tunes from both The Last Waltz , Live At The Cashbah, and Mrs. Henry’s 2019 single “The River.”

    You can purchase all of these recordings and more via Dan’s label, Blind Owl.
