Marty Mendoza's
Rattlesnake Kings-
50's bop, 60's pop, with a pinch of country. That's the new sound emerging from southern Arizona's newest alternative country artist, "Marty Mendoza's Rattlesnake Kings". Spilling over the brim of the Grand Canyon to the rest of the country, and the rest of the world.
Why this name?
One day I was sitting and an image popped in my head. The Rattlesnake King!
Do you play live?
Only on special occassions. Mostly radio and television spots/interviews.
How, do you think, does the internet (or mp3) change the music industry?
Just another venue to show off your stuff.
Would you sign a record contract with a major label?
Sure, why not?
