Tonight, Dec. 12, Tejano Ranch welcomes back the legendary Jimmy Gonzalez y Grupo Mazz. The Brownsville native and bona fide Tejano superstar is considered one of the best arrangers and songwriters in Tejano music and after beginning his career well over thirty years ago, he is still going strong and cranking out hit after hit.
The story of Mazz is nothing short of amazing and is the stuff of movies. Jimmy Gonzalez has seen it all: countless hits, Grammy Awards, Tejano Music Awards, a famously flawed former frontman in Joe Lopez, a famous rivalry with fellow Tejano powerhouse La Mafia, highs and lows, and finally a resurrection with Gonzalez himself as the voice and face of Mazz. Through it all, Gonzalez has consistently written great songs and has continued to be one of the most popular, bankable and reliable acts in Tejano music.
Long story short: Lots of fans, classics and new hits, and well worth the cover charge to see one of the greats.
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. Visit the event page on Facebook here.
