Life Below the Border

In 2004, I moved to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Though I'd always fantasized about living outside of the USA., Mexico wasn't really on my radar until I got word that my friend Mayer Shacter was building a dream house in this thriving but protected Colonial town, 6000' above sea level right in the center of the country.

I didn't realize that San Miguel was one one of the coolest places on the planet to live!  There is a magic in the air, a fascinating blend of cultures, a scene that overflows with talented artists, authors and musicians. I've managed to squeeze a lifetime of fun, friends, romance and adventure out of my 16+ years here, producing concerts, raising some money for amazing charities, recording new music and more.

7 years ago I became an agent for CDR/Christies International Real Estate. I love living here and the opportunity to hook up with this excellent company seemed too perfect to pass up. Now I get to help old and new friends take the next step in their own adventures.

Right now...we're in lockdown like most of the ret of the world--no gigs, no concerts, no hangs with groups of friends. I' ve played live only 4 times since March of 2020 and it's as surreal for me as it must be for you reading this. Fingers crossed (and washed), masks on and moving forward.

And this little thing about getting older, which is actually a tribute to Jimmy Carter and Peter O'Toole. There is a big ol' curse word at one point, but it passes quickly...
Here's the Doug Robinson Trio (Roberto Falcón on bass, Jesús Estrada on drums) with saxophonist Diego Maroto and trumpeter Alán Fajardo, a bit of inspired jamming on Play The Funky Music White Boy at Cent'anni earlier this year (Part one soloists: Diego and Roberto. Part two soloists: Alán, Doug and Jesús).
