Charo tickets cost $30? Huh.
That's nothing Freddy Fender (RIP) tix at the Skag last year cost $78 a shot. WELL WORTH IT!
Underneath all of the surgical preparations she has undergone this woman has enough talent to give a guitar a workout. This is what Dolly Parton would be if Spanish was her native lanquage. I swear if someone comes up with Tom Jones tickets for you now I'm pissed.
Saying Charo is the Latin Dolly Parton is like saying TV On The Radio is the new Living Color. You see me working here?
Charo's awesome and very energetic, almost aggro at times and she damn sure can play that guitar while Dolly has a sweet sweet voice and writes well. Apples and oranges. Please.
Havbe you ever seen Dolly Parton perform live? She has a sweet voice, writes well, plays the guitar brilliantly, and puts on a damn good show - plus she's been a very prolific artist and humanitarian over the decades.

Dolly's undeniably incredible. First time I saw her was with my folks in the 70s. Porter Wagoner too that day.
I just don't see any similarity between she and Charo other than they are both talented and sexy older women with similar physical endowments.
I think the strongest argument for the Dolly-Charo connection is the use of a "sexy clown" persona to disguise a world-class musical talent, which can then be unleashed on unsuspecting audiences to tremendous effect.
Other than that, apples and oranges (and Dolly's songbook and voice clearly put her in a class by herself.)
