Somewhere in Mexico there’s a field of dreams …

August 29, 2009

I filmed this live at La Tasca at Lake Chapala Ajijic, Mexico where the men are all handsome, the ladies are all beautiful, the weather is perfect and we all know how to have fun.

Notice in the “Way Down South in Mexico” video as the camera pans across the dancers you’ll see dancers from 20 something to 80 something and in between.

Somewhere in Mexico there’s a field of dreams …

While many in the world may think that Mexico is a land of drug smugglers and flu bugs, for many retired Baby Boomers and open-minded adventurers, Mexico is a place where dreams come true and life is easy. At least that is the case for three counter culture renegades who met in Ajijic, a small village on the shores of Lake Chapala, minutes away from the bustling city of Guadalajara Mexico. What began as an occasional gig at local bars and cantinas has become a weekly tequila throw down for both Mexicans and Foreigners looking for a taste of the good old days.

Who’d have thunk it – a retired sod buster, an ex-Navy man and a very absent minded professor – joined together as The TallBoys Band. After playing covers of “classic rock” (otherwise known as the same stuff over and over and over again) and 70s country rockers, they decided to spin their own tunes. It’s music about escaping the daily grind and living life in a land where friends and family take precedent over chasing the dollar, and a evening sunset beats the evening news every time.

This is the world of the TallBoys Band. Explore their site. Listen to the music. Watch the videos and then come down to Ajijic, Lake Chapala Mexico and we’ll go see the Tall Boys in their home venue.
