[3/28] Preview: A.J. Castillo at Desperados in Kyle

AJ CastilloSaturday night in Kyle, Desperados will welcome Austin’s own A.J. Castillo for the very first time. The handsome accordionist with the deep voice and scores of loyal fans will be bringing his new flavor of Tejano to the new club, which has grown by leaps and bounds already this year and booking some of the biggest acts in Tejano music.

He may seem young, but he has been around the music scene his entire life, growing up in a musical family along with his talented brother Sergio. Many consider A.J. to be part of the future of Tejano, because of his innovative interpretation of classics as well as some originals, throwing in influences and techniques from other genres, including jazz and hip-hop. His high-energy stage show only adds to his appeal with a younger crowd. A.J.’s newest CD, Sin Limites, is available now.

Long story short: A night of accordion fireworks and hot cumbias, for sure! A younger crowd will pack the dance floor for nearly every song.

Deperados is located at 110 W. Center Street, just west of I-35 in Kyle. The doors open at 8 p.m.The cover charge is $15 all night long. 21+ are welcome. For more information, message Desperados on Facebook or you can keep up with the Facebook event here.
