Los Vigiles

I arrived at Ricardo Vigil’s home last week to be welcomed by numerous members of his family. Three of Vigil’s grandchildren wandered through the Los Vigiles practice room while the group set up their instruments for the evening. Smiles were spread across faces, laughter echoed through the basement halls, and the Vigil family was together. Sounds of a guitar being tuned and an accordion’s bass notes began to fill the air as the hour-long practice got under way. In a way I felt connected to the Vigil family through their up-beat, vivacious tunes. The band members are guitarist and vocalist Joe Vigil, vocalist Christina Vigil, drummer and vocalist Ricardo Vigil, bass guitarist Mario Vigil, accordionist Rene Ochoa, percussionist Luis Vigi, and guitarist Jonah Vigil.
