Special Guests

Frankie Quinones
Frankie Quinones will make regular appearances on the Cinco de Mario Scottsdale Main Stage, emceeing the “Saved By The Bell” Look-A-Like Contest and the leading of a live Cholofit Yoga Class. One of his many performance characters is Creeper, is a “Cholo who has changed his life in a positive direction.” Quinones’ performances are often compared to a one-man variety show. He has performed for our troops overseas in Japan, Europe, and the Middle East and has toured with some of the industry’s most respected headliners including Craig Robinson, Paul Rodriguez, and Eddie Griffin. He can be seen on Comedy Central, NBC, Funny Or Die, and HBO Latino. Check out his new web series, “The Funny Drop” on the Más Mejor YouTube channel produced by Broadway Video and NBC Universal. Also look for him as a starring character in an upcoming TBS series from The Dress Up Gang.

Danny Trejo
Danny Trejo is one of Mario Lopez’ closest friends and he will be strolling the Cinco de Mario Scottsdale festival grounds most of the day, while also stepping up to the Main Stage when needed. Trejo has developed a prolific career in the entertainment industry. Growing up on the streets of Los Angeles, and despite spending the latter part of his youth and early adulthood incarcerated, Trejo has risen to become a great actor and better person. Upon his release from Soledad Prison, Danny became involved in programs aimed at helping those who, like him, battled or are battling drug and alcohol addictions. He has starred in dozens of films including Desperado, Heat, Con Air, Once Upon A Time In Mexico, Machete, and many others. This devoted father of three who is also an intervention counselor does much more – he is also the impresario behind the wildly popular Trejo’s Tacos and Trejo’s Coffee & Donuts in Los Angeles. Of course, we’ve asked him to bring us a box or two of donuts to share with the Cinco de Mario crowd… fingers crossed.
