It's always great when we hear about a young East Texan making their way in the world. East Texas is so full with talent. One of those talented East Texans will be holding a free concert in Mineola this Labor Day weekend.May I introduce Rafael Espinoza from Alba, Texas ! Rafael was all-state jazz guitarist at Alba-Golden High School and performed with The All-State Jazz Band at The Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, which featured the best high school student musicians in the state of Texas.

Rafael has even played with Grammy Award Winner/Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Tom “Bones” Malone of Blues Brothers Fame and who now plays in the CBS Orchestra on The Late Show With David Letterman. Recently Rafael was named the top blues guitarist at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he is a scholarship student. No small feat! Click here for more on Rafaeal.
