It’s a country rock band that’s sure to make the borderland proud Tuesday night! Las Cruces’ very own Border Avenue will be opening for country music legend Keith Urban at his Tuesday night show at the Pan American Center in Las Cruces.
In September, Urban announced that he wanted a local band to open before his big concert, which prompted nearly 25 local bands to send in videos to Urban. Border Avenue ultimately was chosen! Keith Urban’s concert is Tuesday, October 18th. Border Avenue is set to take the stage starting at 7:30 PM.
Saturday, October 15th, Border Avenue will perform at El Patio Cantina in Mesilla, New Mexico, starting at 9:30 PM.
Border Avenue, armed with an old honky tonk feel, toes the line between country and rock n’ roll, but ultimately brings music deeply rooted by country music. Singer/songwriter Frank Gomez, who grew up in Texas and New Mexico, fashioned the four-piece band with members bringing a unique sound from their various musical influences. Gomez cites his upbringing in Texas and country music as focal points to creating Border Avenue.
Together, Gomez (vocals, rhythm guitar), Chris Nuñez (bass), Sam Campos (drums), and Jonathan Maynes (lead guitar) compose the music that has been stirring up in Gomez’s mind as a kid growing up around country music. Border Avenue’s music artfully blends country, rock, and pop on a stage where the band sees as the simple campfire they sat around on so many nights crafting the music they bring to the Country Music scene. Though the band hopes to one day become part of mainstream country music, the goal always remains the same: the never-ending ambition to touch people’s lives and hearts through their music.
