[6/7] Preview: La Tropa F at Tejano Ranch

June 7, it’s another Totally Tejano Friday at Tejano Ranch with La Tropa F. The legendary group will bring its catalog of new material and classic hits to longtime fans at the north Austin Tejano nightspot.

La Tropa F began as a family conjunto way back when as Los Hermanos Farias, with David Farias on accordion. After changing the name, La Tropa F went on to great success during the 1990s and was at the top of the Tejano charts along with other acts like David Lee Garza y Los Musicales, Ram Herrera, and Selena. After scoring with hits like “Juan Sabor” and “Tocando Puertas,” the group later broke up, with David moving on to Los Texmaniacs with Max Baca, and ultimately re-forming Los Hermanos Farias with brothers Joe and Juan.

The current La Tropa F is led by Jesse Farias, and their newest album, Reedifica Su Musica, is now available on Freddie Records.

Long story short: Rooted in 1990s-era Tejano with a few modern tweaks: accordion, saxophone and requisite cowboy hats!

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 $8 before 9 p.m, and $10 cover after 9 p.m. 18+ are welcome. Visit the event page on Facebook here.
