Juan Son and his Heart of Gold

Juan SonMexican pop star, Juan Son, has announced that he is waving his performance fees and donating all show proceeds to Mission Creek Music and Arts Festival effectively making the concert a fundraising event.  He will perform alongside Nacotheque (Mexico/USA) and Pop Noir (USA) on Saturday, July 18th at The Blue Macaw. CONVERGENCE MMIX is produced by San Francisco-based Brown Note Productions in conjunction with Mission Cultural Center for Latino Arts and Peña Pachamama.  This mini festival within the Mission Creek festival will present a series of ten events. CONVERGENCE MMIX includes a premier screening of the Brazilian documentary “Rhythmic Uprising” and a celebration of South American café culture.

Juan Son rose to fame as lead singer for the band Porter, before going solo.  He performs Cheap Tricks number one hit song "I Want You To Want Me" on the soundtrack of the new film, “Rudo y Cursi”, which stars Gael Garcia Bernal (The Motorcycle Diaries, Amores Perros, and  Y Tu Mama Tambie). Both Gael Garcia Bernal and Juan Son hail from Guadalajara, Mexico.

The festival is happy that Juan Son is helping Mission Creek to enrich the Latin programming we are developing notes festival Founder and Executive Producer, Jeff Ray.  And we are extremely fortunate that he is donating his immense talent to support our efforts, as well as the work of Intersection For The Arts.  Ann Blankenship adds "Having the support of such a high profile artist as Juan Son is a tremendous gift.  We are very grateful for his generosity."
