[4/10] Preview: Ruben Ramos CD Release Party at Tejano Ranch

Ruben RamosFriday, Apr. 10, you’re invited to party with Ruben Ramos and the Mexican Revolution at Tejano Ranch. The Austin icon and his big-time band will be celebrating their latest album, El Idolo de Tejas, with a club full of friends and fans at the north Austin Tejano hotspot.

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 1980s, 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.

Also joining the buys will be Tejano legend Jessy Serrata of Los Buenos fame, and Austin’s own CaƱonazo featuring Robby G and Erika Santana, led by Tejano veteran Steve “Rat” Silvas.

Long story short: Ain’t no party like Gato Negro party. If you haven’t seen Ruben and the guys perform live, and you love Austin live music, you’re truly missing out. This will be a great night to experience the charisma, the mega talent, and the energy they’ve been known for all these years.
