Javier MendozaDoors open @ 6:30 & Show starts @ 8
Born in Virginia and raised in Spain, Javier Mendoza headed back to the States on a soccer scholarship to play for St. Louis University. When an injury kept him from playing, he picked up the guitar and began writing music. Soon after he signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell, writing for Enrique Iglesias, Ricky Martin, Emilio Estefan and others. Approached by Bass/Schuler Entertainment to begin showcasing and an increase in demand to tour, Javier hit the road as a singer-songwriter and performer. Javier has independently sold over 50,000 albums and has received many honors including “Best Solo Artist”, “Best Male Vocalist” & “Best Pop Artist” by the Riverfront Times Music Awards. He was a finalist in the Independent Music Awards and was selected as a Budweiser True Music Artist. “Beautiful”, “On Top of the World” and “Veronica” received radio airplay. Mendoza’s songs have also been featured on several TV reality shows and he’s had multiple magazine features and live performances on both radio and TV.
