For the past year we have been songwriting and recording like crazy folk. Best stuff we've ever done and delighted to be part of the international (USA/Mexico/Brazil) team of Starburst/Sahlen/Bauer dba Transcontinental Music Conspiracy. Collectively we have a HUGE catalog of amazing recordings perfect for Film and Television. Bobby and I have been exposed to a wide variety of genres. Never thought a day would come when we'd be known for Rapazzi, the jazz-rap style that originated in Brazil! Check out our NEW MUSIC Page. Sister Senorita has already been signed to an exclusive contract with HD Music Now!

Quote From Leslie Sahlen
“Hola my darlings. A health scare over the summer got me thinking about my personal bucket list. I feel so blessed by the terrific response to last year’s season of Cabarets. The success was due to the professional casts, crews, sponsors and staff who lovingly worked many months to create memorable evenings of entertainment. Cabarets require me to wear many hats (Producer, Director, Writer, Box Office, Performer, Publicist, House Manager, etc. etc. etc.) I simply don’t have the strength to do a full season this year. So, ALL goes into this show in November! This will be the best Cabaret to date. New characters, old favorites (Mona will be there,) and musical segments featuring my personal “Bucket List Band” of AWESOME local musicians, and a “Bucket List Band” for Sam Rainwater too! (FYI Sam’s local appearances benefit the Castaway Kids charity) Not sure what the future holds for me. My list also includes releasing a solo CD, being invited to Liverpool with Chris Montez (hear me Chris? hint! hint!) and possible projects with inspiring local young musicians and the Guaymas orchestra. For now my darlings, the only confirmed appearance this year by moi is this ONE, so be sure and get your tickets in advance. Thank you to my friends and fans. Love you! See you November 22nd and 23rd!“

The Mexmo Story
“Why don’t you start the Mexican Motown? Not just record artists, nurture their confidence and stage presence too. You can call it Mexmo!” Those words were prophetically uttered by my longtime music buddy Chris Montez on my front porch as he contemplated his dream of retiring to Mexico and working with kids. That was over four years ago. Chris is still on the road delighting audiences worldwide with his many hits. There’s even a documentary of his life in production now, Chris Montez, A Man and His Music. Be sure and watch for it, he’s a musical treasure.
Mexmo San Carlos located in the state of Sonora, is a Mexican corporation specializing in music production and promotions. The Gatorlegs publishing catalog contains over 250 songs in the Coconut Country, Twisted Americana, Old Folkie, Mariachi Fusion, New Age Classical, and MexiBlues genres. Since 1989, Gatorlegs Music has produced 21 CDs by artists that include Bobby and Leslie (Mexmo and The Sahlens), Christie Forester, The Twins, Manuelito, and Spanky McFarlane. In 2003 Gatorlegs produced the 1960s Music Festival in San Carlos,Sonora, Mexico (see "Links" above) and co-produced the 2003 Curleyfest II (Ferndale, California) and 2001 Curleyfest (Eureka, California) featuring folk rock legends of the sixties that included Chris Montez, Ethan Kenning (HP Lovecraft,) Peter Childs, Spanky McFarlane (Spanky & Our Gang. Mamas and Papas), Kenny Hodges (Spanky & Our Gang), John Kito (Mamas and Papas) and Carlos Bernal (Byrds.)
