Coyote Mike and the Wetbacks are coming to San Felipe

 The Wetbacks are a group of international musicians that got together in Ensenada in the spring of 2010 with most of the members having had previous experience with different groups over the years with varying degrees of success.  We came together to create a blend of sounds ranging from blues and rock to funk, jazz and reggae. We do original material as well as covers always with that ¨Wetback twist .

The reason for the name of the band was a tongue in cheek social statement rather than a racial slur or derogatory statement. We as a group have never seen an alien, let alone an illegal one,  and knowing that we are all citizens of this one small speck of dust flying through the cosmos we feel that if one person is called a wetback then we are all wetbacks. Borders we believe are false constructs that separate rather that unite people.

The musicians range in age from 17 to 61 years old  and having this wide age range allows us to accept the new and see the old with fresh eyes and ears. We look forward to performing for all of you.

As always we wish you happiness, love and great tunes.
