Bordertown Blues is formerly known as the Fahlguyz. The band first consisted of Brian Craig (bass), Bob Pickford (drums), and Mark Fahl (guitar, vocals). The band changed their name to Bordertown Blues after the addition of Toni Valdez. They have performed all over San Diego and are seasoned professional musicians.
Toni Valdez has performed with members of the Brian Setzer Orchestra and Carlos Santana. Rockin' Records produced her first hit single, “Jitterbug Jive.” She also sings with the Dry Martini Orchestra and Double Trouble.
Mark Fahl has been playing and performing guitar for 30 years.
