Lessons from my bewildered, maladjusted youth!

A hilarious new uncensored, unrated, unabashed, unchained One Man Comedy about growing up. It's Freddie Prinze meets Richard Pryor in this honest, fast paced, spicey hot, innocent yet edgy recollection of life in the 70's, in The Bronx. 40 something year old Cisco Gonzales takes us on a guided tour of The Family, Little League, The Church, Birth, The Brothel and much, much more..

A young innocent boy raised by wolves (actually big brothers) grows up and shares stories about his bewildered, maladjusted, disconnected, misguided, penis focused youth in "Growing Up Gonzales: love, lies and my first hooker." After generations of secrecy, the truth about "Machismo" is finally revealed, the "Secret Ritual Beatdown" at the Latino Funeral is finally exposed and borderline psychotic childhood lessons are finally dissected.

Non-Latinos will be shocked, Semi-Latinos will be inspired, Authentic Latinos will be pissed. "Growing Up Gonzales: love, lies and my first hooker," the Stand Up Comedy Story that asks the question, what the hell happened to you?

Starring Herbie Quinones (HBO, The Apollo, Loco Slam, Latino Mix Morning Show etc...) as Cisco Gonzales, written and directed by Felix Rojas, produced by Reel Players and Poets Club Inc. (the company that provides artistic and creative opportunities to young, capable adults on the Autism Spectrum).

With tight musicians and intriguing lyrics, Happy Freuds delivers high energy guitar rock with stylistic flair on Echo Of Sounds, their debut release. Produced with a minimum of overdubs or fixes, the album consists of a mix of original material, rearrangements of works from others and selected, less known, classic rock.

A kinetic rhythm section is the bones of the music, offering interesting patterns that augment sometimes unexpected harmonic changes. It's brainy rock, in other words, meant for music lovers who can appreciate the quality. Teo's vocals are raspy and expressive, growly when necessary - perfect for the musical mode. Teo also covers lead guitar, adapt at ear worm leads, with a tone that can be clean or dirty as required

Their sound ranges from straight up hard rock in tracks like The Mountain to the pop-flavoured acoustic Background Noise and folky To …
