[9/27] Preview: Marcos Orozco at Texas Club Bar and Grill

MarcosTonight, September 27, Marcos Orozco y Grupo Rebelde will take the stage at the Texas Club Bar and Grill. The award-winning Tejano superstar returns to the Live Music Capital of the World after the release of his latest CD, Musica En La Piel, earlier this year.

The multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer, arranger and musician began his career in the 1980s with groups Blackjack, Powerhouse, and the legendary Fabulosos 4, but it was his time as the lead singer for David Lee Garza y Los Musicales that propelled him to Tejano music super stardom. His unmistakable romantic voice is on the megahits ”Tonta,” “Una Noche Mas,” “Tu Boca Roja,” and more, which are still on heavy rotation at Tejano music stations and on DJ playlists everywhere.

After his time with the Musicales, Orozco embarked on a successful solo career with his own group, Rebelde. To date the group has released eight albums, including four on his own independent label, Oromar Records. Tracks from his solo efforts include “Baila Morena,” “Costumbres,” “Una Historia de Amor,” and “Como Un Tigre.” Recently, he also covered the late Jenni Rivera’s “El Amor.”

Long story short: With one of the most beautiful and unique voices in Tejano music history belting out some of his classics and latest hits, the dancefloor at the southeast Tejano hot spot will be packed with shiny boots, sparkling belt buckles, and twirling cowboy hats.

The Texas Club Bar and Grill is located on Burleson Road just south of Ben White Boulevard in southeast Austin. The show starts at 9 p.m., presale tickets are $12 and the cover is probably $15 at the door. 21+ are welcome. For more information call (512) 541-7621.
