Tonight the Texas Club Bar and Grill presents Conjunto Romo. The family band from Kyle, also known as “Los Little Rascals de Conjunto” will bring their hardcore Conjunto to the southeast Austin Tejano hotspot.

Considered rising stars on the Conjunto scene, Conjunto Romo includes father Navor Romo on bass and vocals, and sons Cedrick on accordion, JJ on drums and Noe on bajo sexto. With two band members still in high school and one recently graduated, Conjunto Romo has made great strides in establishing themselves among legendary performers and fans alike. Citing the late Jimmy Garcia of Los Garcia Bros. as a major influence, the Romos stay true to the traditional Conjunto sound and have established a strong following.

Long story short: There will be no synthesizers, no saxophones, or any of the extras that you would normally hear at a Tejano show. This is straight-up Conjunto, and will satisfy the hardcore fans and dancers.

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., there is no cover charge, and 21+ are welcome. For more information call (512) 541-7621.
