If you ever heard a Robinella record or saw her act live, you heard Cruz Contreras, her ex-husband and band leader. Since they split up, each has continued with music. On Thursday night, Contreras will be at Kirk Avenue Music Hall, opening for Shannon Whitworth Band. Get details at Top Tickets. (In a total coincidence, Robinella will be at Kirk Ave. on Jan. 29.)
Here, we talk about Contreras’ new music and stream some of it.
