It is with the deepest regret we let you know that the Alejandro Ziegler Quartet will not be able to complete their 5th USA tour this year, including their scheduled appearance at the CMC Mission Milonga on Saturday October 8.

Although Alejandro was able to enter into Texas, USA from Buenos Aires a week ago, the crossing from Canada to USA was not allowed by US immigration officials. He has legal work visas, but apparently there was a technical issue that his lawyer did not inform him of.

This is a very stressful situation for Alejandro. He already lost a ton of money and his health is suffering from all the stress.

This dramatic emergency situation affects all the hosts and organizer of the 2016 NorCal Tour and we apologize profoundly for the inconvenience. We are asking the Tango community to support us and come out as planned to the Opening Night of the CMC Mission Milonga on Saturday Oct 8.

We are lucky to have found a beautiful replacement with local tango ensemble: Redwood Tango Trio - www.redwoodtango.com

Thank you for your patience.
