[5/17] Preview: Conjunto Baraja de Oro at the Moose Lodge

Conjunto Baraja De OroSaturday, May 17, it will be another conjunto good time at the Moose Lodge with El Conjunto Baraja de Oro. The red-hot north Texas conjunto has become an Austin favorite after super successful appearances at the Rancho Alegre Conjunto Festival, and the Cinco de Mayo and Diez y Seis de Septiembre celebrations presented by Fiestas Patrias of Austin.

Affectionately known as BDO, Conjunto Baraja de Oro is one of the hottest bands going these days. Husband and wife duo Mario and Betty Barajas are taking the conjunto (and Tejano) world by storm, boasting multiple Tejano Music Award nominations, incredibly well-attended shows, high-quality songwriting and recordings, and a loyal army of fans.

Mario and Betty may seem like newcomers, but Mario has been working hard for over 20 years playing accordion and singing in various Tejano groups. For over a decade, he and Betty have, with their super-talented band members, steadily built the phenomenon that is Conjunto Baraja de Oro. Their discography includes three studio albums, La Marca, The American Dream, and their most recent release, Tres.

Long story short: BDO is at the top of their game, and their show is not to be missed. Conjunto with plenty of accordion fireworks and great vocals.

The Moose Lodge is located at 2103 E.M. Franklin Avenue, north of MLK and east of Airport Boulevard in East Austin. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., presale tickets are $10. All ages are welcome.  View the Facebook event page here. For more information about ticket prices and availability, call 512-926-0043.
