Chris Montez!

Oh, man how I love Chris Montez. I got turned on to him by my good pal John P. of King Cat fame, and if that is not reason enough to believe that Mr. Montez isn't something of a ray of sunshine on the face of all living creatures, check this!

Those Beatles fellas opened up for Chris Montez at his 1962 London show!

It is alleged that while in London for said show he got into a fight with John Lennon in a pub and that Lennon poured a pint over his head at one point.

Mr. Herb Alpert signed Chris Montez to his fledgling A&M record label, resulting in 3 amazing records of laid back, cheery, latin-infused bliss.

He provided me with a headlining track on the first mix tape that I made for The First Lady while we were still courting. (Who am I kidding, we are still courting!)

He still sounds as fresh and happy today. If you doubt me cast your peepers on this:

Thank you for reminding me of Mr. Montez! His songs were on a jukebox in my mother's bar. She'd play them and we'd laugh and sing along.
