Tonight conjunto returns to the Texas Club Bar and Grill with Los Badd Boyz Del Valle and Da Krazy Pimpz. The sounds of South Texas will fill the air at the southeast Austin club, with the Elsa-based Badd Boyz bringing their hardcore style from deep in the Rio Grande Valley and some first-rate flashy showmanship courtesy of the Pimpz from Eagle Pass.
Los Badd Boyz Del Valle have enjoyed immense popularity in the past few years with a couple of hit singles and albums, earning them a growing fan base that reaches from their home turf to Houston, where hardcore conjunto has exploded amongst a younger crowd. In 2011, the guys won the award for Best New Artist-Group at the Tejano Music Awards, and scored a big hit with “Eres Clicka.”
Da Krazy Pimpz came on the scene in 2007 with wild stage costumes and strong conjunto and cumbia chops. Led by accordion and sax player Eddie Jimenez, the group has recorded four albums with Tejano superstar Gary Hobbs on his AMMX Record label. The hard-working band has traveled all over the state and made their Austin debut at the 2013 Cinco de Mayo celebration at Fiesta Gardens.
Long story short: conjunto, cumbias…AWESOME suits from both bands, just a good ol’ time on the south side.
