Share Article

Frank Ortega, country music artist, will be in Peoria, AZ. on November 18th for a live concert and charitable fund raiser for his elementary school.

"This is a homecoming of sorts for me as it’s been too long since I've played my hometown," says Ortega. “I’ll be bringin’ the twang and playing it on my custom Dos Equis guitar, which will then be auctioned off.”

Country music artist Frank Ortega will be coming home to Arizona to perform at "Skye" in Peoria, Arizona on Friday, November 18th 2011 at 8pm.

He is in partnership with Dos Equis and has been auctioning off his custom Frank Ortega/Dos Equis guitars at his concerts to raise money for various charities.

"This is a homecoming of sorts for me as it’s been too long since I've played my hometown," says Ortega. “I’ll be bringin’ the twang and playing it on my custom Dos Equis guitar, which will then be auctioned off.”

He adds, “100% of the proceeds will go to support the needs of kids at Tomahawk Elementary School in Phoenix—which is about a block from where I grew up. My mother, Jessie Ortega, has assisted with the kids there for many years.”

Frank recently performed in Illinois with dear friend and country artist Heidi Newfield (formerly of "Trick Pony" and known for her hit "Johnny and June"), and raised $2000.00 with one of his Ortega/Dos Equis guitars for "Victory Junction Camp” for chronically ill children, founded in 2004 by NASCAR driver Kyle Petty and his wife.

Frank Ortega hails from Tempe and was raised in Phoenix. He lives in Nashville and has been in the South for the past 15 years. Frank has performed at many Arizona fixtures over the years such as Celebrity Theatre, the now "Ashley Furniture Homestore Pavilion,” and others.

Ortega has been featured in national magazines such as "Country Weekly,” has charted on the country music charts, and has been celebrated as an emerging American Country Artist. It has been said that his Latin background allows him to invite a variety of ethnicities into the American Country Music genre in a way that many simply cannot.

While in town for the show, Frank Ortega will be visiting the music class at Tomahawk Elementary on the18th of November to meet with students and share some of his childhood musical experiences.
