[7/19] Preview: A.J. Castillo at Tejano Ranch

Friday, July 19, Tejano Ranch welcomes back Austin’s own A.J. Castillo. The handsome accordionist with the deep voice and legion of loyal fans will once again bring his new flavor of Tejano to the north Austin club.

He may seem young, but he’s been around the music scene his entire life, growing up in a musical family. Many consider A.J. to be part of the future of Tejano, because of his innovative interpretation of classics as well as some originals, throwing in influences and techniques from other genres including jazz and hip-hop. His high-energy stage show only adds to his appeal with a younger crowd. A.J.’s newest CD, The New Movement, is available now.

Long story short: A night of accordion fireworks and hot cumbias, for sure! A younger crowd will pack the dancefloor for nearly every song.

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 $12 before 9 p.m, and $15 after 9 p.m. 18+ are welcome. The Facebook event is here.
