Medina plays bass guitar. The Beeville native moved to Dallas in 1978 and graduated from North Texas State University with a degree in music. His studio work includes local and national television, radio and numerous recordings with various artists. Medina is on the research and development team for Mesa Boogie helping to create and perfect amplifiers for the bass guitar. He owns “First Bass Productions,” a record company that produces Horstman’s CDs.
Harpist Cindy Horstman, the 2005 Sammons Center for the Arts Jazz Artist of the Year, reaches out to all ages through her music. She is classically trained with a master of music degree in harp performance from the University of Texas at Austin. After a prize-winning performance in the Lyon Healy International Jazz Harp Competition, Horstman and Medina formed the jazz group, “2 tone.” Together they’ve played for many distinguished figures, including President Bill Clinton and jazz musician Wynton Marsalis.
2 tone performs at various festivals and concerts around the United States. They currently have eight CDs and their music is played on radio stations across the country.
