[8/2] Preview: Jimmy Gonzalez y Grupo Mazz at Texas Club Bar and Grill

Jimmy GonzalezTonight, Tejano returns to the Texas Club Bar and Grill with the legendary Jimmy Gonzalez y Grupo Mazz. The Brownsville native is a bona fide superstar and considered one of the best arrangers and songwriters in Tejano music, and is still going strong and cranking out the hits after beginning his career well over thirty years ago.

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.

The Texas Club Bar and Grill is located on Burleson Road just south of Ben White Boulevard in southeast Austin. The show starts at 9 p.m., cover is $15, and 21+ are welcome. For more information call (512) 541-7621.
