[9/5] Preview: Erick y Grupo Massore at Tejano Ranch


Tonight, it’s cumbia time at Tejano Ranch with Erick y Grupo Massore. While not a Tejano group per se, the red-hot Mexican family band returns to the Live Music Capital as a fan favorite, having played to bigger and bigger crowds in numerous clubs and festivals around town.

The Sanchez brothers from Coahuila, Mexico have been together since the mid-90s with brother Erick on timbales and lead vocals. In recent years, Tejano has tilted more and more toward more cumbia-based groups, and Massore really hit it big with Tejano fans in 2010 with the single, “La Inconforme.” Since then, they have been a mainstay at festivals and events all over Texas and the United States, with fans loving their youthful energy and hot beats and infectious rhythms.

Long story short: A lot of energy, tons of dancing, standing room only. Cumbias, cumbias, cumbias!

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 $10 all night. 18+ are welcome. Visit the Facebook event page here.
