Gotyourdownload.com in conjunction with Suave Groove Records presents the Christmas Stars, "Christmas in the Barrio," CD release party on December 3, 2011 from 8 pm to 12 pm, at Nick's Taste of Texas, 545 N. Citrus Ave., Covina, CA 91723.

The Christmas Stars, along with guest musicians, are a collective musical celebration that will unleash your holiday season mood. Their featured songs "Christmas in the Barrio" and "Pancho Claus Is a Coming into Town," are humorous, mythical, and reflective of an American experience during the holiday season in the eastside of Los Angeles. Christmas song classics included in the CD are Jingle Bells, Silver Bells, Feliz Navidad, Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, Have a Holly Jolly Christmas, Winter Wonderland and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas. These all time favorites will be performed and are artistically arranged within cumbia, tex-mex, blues, Latin jazz, swing, and traditional jarocho, huapango and bolero rhythm forms.

The Christmas Stars is a core of five musicians who have played with local groups such as Los Rock Angels, Alienz, Aztlan, Califas, Road Work Ahead, Los Suspiros and Trio del Alma. Two of the members have toured and recorded with Grammy award winning groups such as the Texmaniacs, Flaco Jimenez, Texas Tornados, Lalo Guerrero, Little Joe and the Familia and Los Lobos. Guest musicians have toured with War and Tierra and artists Poncho Sanchez and Joan Sebastian, and have performed with local groups such as the 44s (blues), Mariachi Voz de America and the Suzie Hansen band (Latin jazz).

Chico Manqueros, from the "Gozando with Chico" show on EastLARevue.com, will be your MC for the evening and the MexiCats will debut as the opening act. The MexiCats will perform a high energy set of cumbias, R&B, tex-mex and blues music and a Christmas jam session will conclude the evening. For ticket information, log on to gotyourdownload.com.
