Live In-Studio: Rock/Jazz Violinist Patrick Contreras
Some people call Fresno's Patrick Contreras a rock violinist. To others, he's a jazz musician. To others still he's a blues or a Latin music artist. His music spans categories and influences from plugged-in Jimi Hendrix inspired riffs to romantic boleros. He and pianist/guitarist Omar Nare joined us on Valley Edition for a live in-studio performance ahead of their concert on Saturday at ApCal in Madera for a Ronald McDonald House benefit.
