[11/9] Preview: Solido at Tejano Ranch

On Friday, November 9, Tejano Ranch welcomes back the Tejano-Norteño group, Sólido. Borrowing from each genre, which are related, but still quite different, the group describes their sound as “romantic and melodic, ideal for dancing and singing.” The group is often categorized with other Tejano-Norteño groups like Duelo, Siggno, and Intocable.

Based in Rio Grande City, Texas, Sólido has remained popular and productive since the group’s nearly overnight rise to fame after signing with Freddie Records in the early 2000s. Their discography includes the albums Hasta La Cima Del Cielo, Nadie Como Tu (which won the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Tejano Album), Por Ti, Vuelve, En Vivo Contigo, Nuestro Amor, Cuidado, Que Importa, and their latest album, Te Va A Doler.

Tejano Ranch is located at 7601 North Lamar, just south of Highway 183 in north Austin. The doors open at 8 p.m. The cover charge is $10 before 9 p.m, and $12 cover after 9 p.m. 18+ are welcome. Visit the event page on Facebook here.
