Fans of Buena Vista Social Club, Jarabe de Palo and Manu Chao will love Santa Pachita’s horn-infused blend of Rumba, Salsa, Ska, Cumbia & Bolero rhythms & vibes. Santa Pachita is a 9-piece Tucson band that has been playing together since 2012. Guitarist, Miguel Reyes, and bass player, Victor Cruz, started the band after working together on other musical projects. They brought in talented musicians that have a variety of different musical backgrounds. The result is a danceable fusion of ska, cumbia, and rumba-salsa. The congas, flute, and trumpet add depth to the energetic music that is influenced by bands like Manu Chao. The focus of the band is to explore and fuse rhythms like rumba, salsa and son and create an interactive musical experience for the audience.

Here’s the short version: Geeks Who Drink is a homegrown Pub Trivia Quiz modeled after those in Ireland and the UK. Our quizzes cover everything from celebrities in trouble to wordplay to bad television. You can get a feel for the questions we ask by playing a sample round here. Each quiz has two audio rounds: a “Name that Tune” style round, and another round comprised of soundbites from movies and TV. Play in teams of up to six or by yourself if you’re some kind of savant. If you want to play but don’t have a team, come anyway. We can usually get single players recruited onto an existing team. Winning teams gets street cred, bar cash and other prizes depending on the venue. Bonus Questions for free pints are sprinkled throughout the quiz. You don’t have to be a trivia God to enjoy the quiz. Since you’re playing on a team, the collective knowledge base makes for more fun, less pressure. It’s not final friggin’ Jeopardy. Find our full schedule of when and where to play Geeks Who Drink here! But there’s so much more to Geeks Who Drink!
