[11/22] Preview: Elida Reyna y Avante at Tejano Ranch

elidaFriday, Nov. 22, it’s another Totally Tejano Friday at Tejano Ranch with Elida Reyna y Avante. Fans will not be disappointed by the Mercedes native and her band, who always put on a great show highlighted by her truly awesome stage presence and energetic, passionate performance style.

In the past few years, Reyna has dominated Tejano music, consistently taking home honors at the Tejano Music Awards (including Female Vocalist of the Year every year since 2007!), as well as the Latin Grammy Award for Best Tejano Album in 2010. Her solo success, as well as her recent duets with another super-hot performer, Jesse Turner of Siggno, have firmly solidified her Tejano superstar status.

One of the great things about Reyna is that she’s more than eye candy. Although undeniably gorgeous, she has written many of her own songs and has the chops to do any genre she chooses with her strong voice that is never shrill or grating. In fact, aside from the modern Tejano she is known for, she also recorded Mis Raizes back in 2006, an album that featured Conjunto favorite Ruben De La Cruz and the legendary Gilberto Perez. On top of all that, she also did a mariachi duet with Michael Salgado, and even performed with Salgado for President Barack Obama’s Latino Inauguration ceremony.

Long story short – Elida Reyna is hot, and at the top of her game. Expect an amazing show and large crowd of adoring fans.

Tejano Ranch is located at 7601 North Lamar, just south of Highway 183 in north Austin. The doors open at 8 p.m. $12 cover all night, 18+ are welcome. Visit the event page on Facebook here.
