Javier Mendoza Returns to WBS Birds In Concert

Join us on Thursday, August 7th, from 7pm – 8:30pm to enjoy Raptor Project music, followed by the ever-popular Javier Mendoza.  Javier has been a staunch supporter of the World Bird Sanctuary, returning every year to perform for our Birds in Concert guests.

Javier has sold over 50,000 albums and has received many honors throughout his career, including “Best Solo Artist”, “Best Male Vocalist” & “Best Pop Artist” by the Riverfront Times Music Awards.  He was also a finalist in the Independent Music Awards and was selected as a Budweiser True Music Artist.

Javier has released 14 albums and shared the stage with such notable artists as Willie Nelson, Los Lobos, The Roots, Ben Folds and many more.  His dedication to creating new and different material and his passion for live performance keeps bringing the fans back again and again.  Whether he’s playing for 10 people or a crowd of 10,000, Javier makes each show unforgettable.  The physical and emotional energy he delivers is truly amazing and must be experienced to be believed.

Rather than focusing primarily on the future, Javier’s music focuses on “Now” and how incredible the journey of life can be if you let it.  For Javier living in the “Now” is about personal growth, working with great musicians, new fans, long time fans, and welcoming all that life has to offer without hesitation. 

Last year Javier was invited by the non-profit “Pan Y Amor” to travel to Bolivia to help raise support for neglected and abused children.  A new short video  has been created to help raise support for this amazing program and Javier produced an original song to accompany the film.  All proceeds from the song “The Forgotten” will be donated to “Pan Y Amor”.

There will also be games and giveaways from:
