A Mariachi band interrupted a meeting on Wednesday between Colorado GOP Sen. Cory Gardner and local business leaders.

Gardner was hosting a meeting with the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce when the band began playing at the back of the room as the senator was answering questions.

Local outlet KOAA reported that the band paid $250 to become members of the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce so they could attend the meeting.

The Colorado Republican has come under fire for not hosting town hall meetings and meeting with Latino constituents.

"Our community has been writing letters, making calls and he's just not responding," Hilda Nucete, the program director of a Latino engagement group called "Protegete," told the outlet.

Gardner disputes that he is not holding town halls and asserts he has held numerous tele-town halls.

"We've held dozens of forms of town halls over the past many years, held a number of tele-town halls just in the past several weeks," he said. "I think we've had over 44,000 people who have participated in our tele-town halls," Gardner told KOAA.
