[1/12] Preview: Ruben Ramos at Primo’s Round Rock

Tonight the legendary Ruben Ramos comes to Primo’s Round Rock (NOT Los Primos Nightclub), along with his big-time band, the Mexican Revolution. The Austin favorite never disappoints a crowd, belting out his classic Tejano hits, and even dropping in a few Mariachi and R&B selections as well.

With a career spanning over five decades, two Grammy awards, and countless albums and collaborations, the handsome, charismatic, silver-haired Ramos is known for his soulful voice and suave persona. Backing him up is the big sound of the world-class Mexican Revolution, known for its funky accordion and hot brass section. Back in the ’80s, Ramos scored a hit with “El Gato Negro,” which quickly became his nickname among fans and musicians alike. He is also known for frequent collaborations with other artists, especially for his work with fellow legends Roberto Pulido and Little Joe as Los Tres Amigos. With other hits like “Canal Seco,” “Voy Navegando,” and “Tierras Planas Del West,” his music is a mainstay on Tejano playlists everywhere.

Primo’s Round Rock is located at 1826 North Mays Street, just east of I-35 and south of Old Settlers Boulevard in Round Rock. The doors open at 7 p.m., and the music starts at 9 p.m. The cover charge is $15, 21+ are welcome. Visit the event page on Facebook here.
