"I'm looking forward to putting on a great show with New Mexico music heavyweight Gonzalo, the famous sister-duo Sorela and Erika Bonilla," says Rene. "They will be joining me on stage for the big New Year's Eve Gala at Buffalo Thunder."

The concert will be high-energy from the first song to the last with a mix of New Mexican, Spanish, Country, Funk and some Rock. 

"I'm looking forward to seeing all of my friends and fans from up North," adds Rene. "Buffalo Thunder's Tewa Ballroom will be packed with people dressed in their New Year's best, dancing the night away.  I always enjoy performing at Buffalo Thunder. It's a classy resort and a special place to bring in 2011."

Tobias will perform many songs from his new best-selling album "Feel the Heat" including "CuCuRooCuCu Paloma" with Barilla. The song is a duet about a dove crying lost love. "Feel the Heat" was released in October 2010.
