Saturday afternoon July 12, Tejano returns to the Austin Country Flea Market with Angel y Vimana. The charismatic, fun-loving group will bring their unique, rhythmic sound to the pulga in eastern Travis County for an afternoon of family-friendly entertainment.

Led by vocalist and songwriter Angel Gonzalez, the group has worked hard to establish a fan base around Central Texas and beyond. Gonzalez, who is equally adept at freestyle, brings a different kind of flavor to the music, creating a Tejano sound with Vimana reminiscent of the pop-flavored cumbias made famous by Selena. The group’s first CD, Sin Limites, is available now and will be celebrated with a big CD release party in San Antonio on July 26.

Long story short: This is a fun group who loves to perform and will make an outing to the flea market even more of a good time. Johnny Garza of Los Fantasticos is also scheduled to make a guest appearance, as well.

The Austin Country Flea Market is located on the westbound side of Highway 290 between Springdale and Johnny Morris Road in northeast Austin. There is no additional cover charge and admission is included with the $1 parking fee. All ages are welcome. Music is scheduled from 12:30 to 6 p.m.
