PAQUITA LA DEL BARRIO
Paquita la del Barrio realiza canciones del género ranchero y otros estilos tradicionales mexicanos. Sus temas por lo general son de despecho y en contra de la cultura machista, motivo por el cual se ha hecho tan popular y famosa especialmente con el público femenino. En su show, la frase "¿Me estas oyendo inútil?" es la que la caracteriza y la cual usa como tipo de aversión a los varones para bromear. Muchos de sus discos y canciones son parte del repertorio de rocolas en clubs y cantinas de México. Una de sus canciones muy conocidas es "Rata de dos patas" en la cual usa la metáfora de la rata para compararla a los caballeros. Muchos de sus admiradores, particularmente los que radican fuera de México, aprecian la manera tan peculiar de interpretación musical.

Paquita la del Barrio (“Franny from the neighborhood”) performs rancheras and other Mexican musical styles. Her songs usually take a stance against Mexico's sexist male culture. This has made her popular among female audiences. Paquita’s signature phrase, with which she often teases male spectators in her shows, is “¿Me estás oyendo, inútil?”  ("Are you listening to me, you good-for-nothing?").  Many of her albums and songs are jukebox staples in Mexican clubs and cantinas. One of her best known songs is Rata de dos patas (“Two-legged rat”), in which she uses a rat as a metaphor for a man. Many admirers, particularly outside Mexico, also appreciate Paquita for her camp value.

PAUL THORN
RENTAL FY16
PAUL THORN
Paul Thorn and his band thrilled a Gallo Center audience in each of the last two seasons, so much so that we’re bringing him back to perform at this year’s ROYAL FAMILY KIDS’ CAMP annual benefit concert.  A couple of comments heard last year were “That show was a Paul Thorn love fest with the audience” and “That’s it, I’m officially a Thorniac!” You do NOT want to miss this show! With this blues-rock artist, the first thing you notice is the distinctively soulful and funky voice,  the voice of a man who has walked a long, hot span over dusty country roads. Those who follow his career believe Thorn is one of the best ‘Americana’ songwriters and performers today—including such big fans as Bonnie Raitt, Kris Kristopherson, Mark Knopfler, Elvin Bishop and Huey Lewis.  Thorn is now touring in support of his new album, "Too Blessed to be Stressed." Royal Family Kids’ Camp is a summer camp program for abused or abandoned children. A national organization, (www.rfkc.org) RFKC has served thousands of kids since its inception in the early 90s. We held our first camp for STANISLAUS COUNTY children in 2006 and have grown in each succeeding year. In June of 2014 we served 30 kids at our camp in the Sierras. We are a 100% volunteer staff and all of the funds we raise go towards providing a fun-filled week at camp for these children.
