Sunday, Sept. 22, the El Flamingo Club will welcome Los Texas Wranglers for a traditional Sunday tardeada. The popular Austin-based conjunto will bring their friendly, down-home style to the southeast Austin dancehall (also known as the Flamingo Ballroom) for an afternoon of conjunto, country, and dancing.
Earlier this year, Los Texas Wranglers celebrated the release of their newest cd, Mi Canciones, which includes original material written by bandleader Julian Limón Fernandez. The group, which features veteran musicians and female voices, is a hard-working conjunto with a loyal fan base that loves to dance to the group’s unique blend of country and conjunto music. Fernandez has won Austin Music Awards for Best Drummer, accordionist Mariano “Sonny” Trujillo has won in the Miscellaneous Instruments category, and the group has also won for Best Latin Traditional Band as well.
Long story short: Wranglers dances are always easy-going, fun, family-friendly events. No one is a stranger, and there are lots of smiles, laughter, and great tunes from some great musicians.
The El Flamingo Club is located at 8619 U.S. 183 South, in far southeast Austin. Music starts at 3 p.m. Tickets are $10 presale, $15 at the door, and all ages are welcome. For more information and to buy presale tickets, contact Julian Fernandez at 512-933-1485.
