[4/13] Preview: Avizo with Joe Bravo and Jimmy Edward at Texas Club Bar and Grill

Saturday night, April 13, fans at the Texas Club Bar and Grill will get a taste of the classic orquesta style of Tejano with legends Joe Bravo and Jimmy Edward joining Houston brass powerhouse Avizo.

Avizo is known for its big brass section and wall of sound. Nominated for a Grammy Award in 2005, Avizo is known for collaborating with a variety of different performers. Lead singer Chris Quiroga has one of the strongest voices in Tejano music, and frequently duets with other artists.

Also performing is the legendary Joe Bravo. Since beginning his career in the early 1960s with the Sunglows, Joe Bravo has been one of Tejano music’s beloved icons. Among his catalog of hits, the classic “Que Casualidad” is one of those songs that is truly part of the soundtrack of the lives of Chicanos everywhere, and continues to reside on all Tejano playlists in clubs and on radio stations.

Jimmy Edward will also be taking the stage that evening. Another legend, Jimmy’s known for his time with the Latin Breed, and also for his successful solo career as well. One of his biggest hits was “Tu Prieto,” and like other hits of the era, remains firmly in place in the hearts and minds of Tejano fans all over the country.

Long story short: Old school, horn-driven Tejano at its finest, with two of the masters of the genre.

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., the cover charge is $10 all night. 21+ are welcome. For more information call (512) 541-7621. View the Facebook event here.
