[8/3] Preview: Conjunto Baraja de Oro at Texas Club Bar and Grill

Saturday, August 3, it will be another conjunto good time at the Texas Club Bar and Grill with El Conjunto Baraja de Oro. The red-hot north Texas conjunto returns to Austin after super successful appearances at the Rancho Alegre Conjunto Festival, Moose Lodge, and Cinco De Mayo Celebration.

Affectionately known as Conjunto BDO or simply BDO, Conjunto Baraja de Oro is one of the hottest bands going these days. Husband and wife duo Mario and Betty Barajas are taking the conjunto (and Tejano) world by storm, boasting multiple Tejano Music Award nominations, incredibly well-attended shows, high-quality songwriting and recordings, and a loyal army of fans.

Mario and Betty may seem like newcomers, but Mario has been working hard for over 20 years playing accordion and singing in various Tejano groups. For over a decade, he and Betty have, with their super-talented band members, steadily built the phenomenon that is Conjunto Baraja de Oro. Their discography includes two studio albums, La Marca and The American Dream.

Long story short: BDO is at the top of their game, and their show is not to be missed. Conjunto with plenty of accordion fireworks and great vocals.

The Texas Club Bar and Grill is located on Burleson Road just south of Ben White Boulevard in southeast Austin. Cover is $8 before 9 p.m. and $10 after 9 p.m., and 21+ are welcome. For more information call (512) 541-7621. Visit the Facebook event here.
