Once again, Alvaro Paulino and some of the members of New York City based Mariachi Tapatio were invited back to the set of 30 Rock to record a second part to the episode that they previously recorded on December 5th. This time Alvaro was asked to write a mariachi arrangement of the song “N.Y.C.” from the musical, Annie, which Mariachi Tapatio will perform on the episode scheduled to air on Thursday, February 23, 2012 on NBC. Alvaro and the members of Mariachi Tapatio were treated like stars and had the opportunity to hangout on the set of 30 Rock with some of the cast and crew.
Congratulations to Alvaro Paulino and Mariachi Tapatio for the amazing opportunity and for representing mariachi music on a national level. We look forward to many more appearances on this and other television shows. Next stop, Hollywood! We can’t wait to have you back in San Antonio for the 18th Annual Mariachi Vargas Extravaganza so that you can share your experiences with all of the students.
