We all dream…we all want to be happy…we all want to live the “good life” (though our definitions of what EXACTLY this means, may vary)…The fact is: we all WANT…
But how many of us are actually willing to GIVE what it takes to make our WANTS come to fruition? How many of us are willing to step outside of our comfort zone and risk it all, in the name of our dreams?
I once laughed at a dream of mine - the very notion of having this band (Son Salvaje) become a reality - and…for a long period of time, I cast this dream aside. I knew that going for this particular dream of mine would require a tremendous leap of faith on my part…and, I was afraid of falling. I was afraid of trying; I was afraid of failing; I was afraid of having people laugh at my botched attempts at accomplishing something that many told me I wouldn’t be able to do in the first place. The way I saw it, it was far easier to stay in my comfort zone and never try, than to bet it all and risk the embarrassment of defeat.
Fortunately for me, I’ve been blessed with an amazing army of friends and family who have believed in me when I had trouble believing and who have FOUGHT for me, when I lacked the strength and courage to do so myself. Through their love, through their guidance, through their patience, I’ve transformed from frail child, too afraid to fight for his dreams, into fearless soldier, that won’t STOP fighting for his dreams…For this, I am eternally grateful.
…It’s strange how things start falling into place when we start believing…The band that stands before you is proof of this phenomenon. I acknowledge that, as a collective unit, we have a GREAT deal to learn but I can assure you that, what you have before you is NO ORDINARY band…this is an assembly of Latin All-Stars…a representation of some of THE best “musical assasins” I’ve encountered in my journey thus far. With their support, and that of my family and friends, I’m here to deliver a message to all that will listen: “even our WILDEST dreams can become a reality…if we attack them with “Brute Force”.
