In just a few years, banda crooner Espinoza Paz
has risen from an undocumented farmworker toiling in fields outside Sacramento to a rising star on the Latin music scene. A winner of the 2010 BMI Latin Songwriter of the year, the cowboy-hatted heartthrob recently enjoyed a big hit with “Lo Intentamos,” a sexy song that opens with one whispered “Corazon.” When the horns kick in, it’s all over—hello melting heart, goodbye underwear. Let love in with Espinoza Paz on Monday, May 29, at the Wells Fargo Center. 50 Mark West Springs Road, Santa Rosa. $80–$105. 8pm. 707.546.3600.
