I met BJ on my birthday May 1st 2000 while he was playing at the Washbag…he quickly became a dear friend, inspiration & loved member of our family. I loved picking him up at Trieste & going to La Rondalla for the best & one of the only remaining 12 family member Mariachi bands still playing!! We always drank shots of Don Julio & BJ matched me shot for shot all night!
I will miss you BJ and always cherish the wisdom, kindness, wit & spirit you generously shared.
My friend BJ PAPA…A true artist, a universal humanitarian and always a consummate gentleman, I will miss you always…
Aloha my friend & may your spirit dance on the wind, blow thru fields of wildflowers & sit in with any band in the cosmos!!!
