[8/2] Preview: Stampede at Tejano Ranch

It will be another Totally Tejano Friday on August 2, when Grupo Stampede takes the stage at Tejano Ranch. The high-energy DFW-based sextet will return to the north Austin Tejano club with a growing fan base, thanks to previous well-received performances at other Tejano hot spots around town.

Since forming in the mid-1990s, Grupo Stampede has straddled the line between Tejano and NorteƱo, and is often put in the same category as other groups like Siggno and Intocable. The group plays originals, breathes new life into covers, and defines its sound by building on the classic Tejano formula with strong lead electric guitar, keyboards, and powerful vocals by charismatic frontman Alex De Leon.

Long story short: Stampede is known for their stage show, so there will be plenty of entertainment on-stage and on the dance floor.

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 after 9 p.m. 18+ are welcome.
