On Friday, Apr. 25, David Lee Garza y Los Musicales will be back at Tejano Ranch. The group is one of the most successful and popular Tejano bands ever, and is sure to pack the dance floor with their set list full of some of the genre’s biggest hits.
Over the past four decades, accordionist and bandleader David Lee Garza has built a musical legacy that few can match. While his group has been the launching pad for other legendary performers like Ram Herrera, Emilio Navaira, Oscar G, Jay Pérez, and Marcos Orozco, “DLG” has maintained a distinct sound that some say is quintessentially Tejano: bright accordion matched with keyboards and saxophone to a strong danceable beat.
The man himself is also known for frequent collaborations with other performers, including the album Polkas, Gritos y Acordeónes, with Joel Guzmán and Sunny Sauceda, which won the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Tejano Album. In fact, Garza’s newest album, Just Friends, features some of Tejano’s best voices and won the 2013 Latin Grammy Award for Best Tejano Album.
Long story short: Hit after hit after hit, Tejano at its finest.
Tejano Ranch is located at 7601 North Lamar, just south of Highway 183 in north Austin. The doors open at 8 p.m. $12 before 9 p.m., $15 after 9 p.m. 18+ are welcome.
