[2/6] Preview: Sunny Sauceda and Art Tigerina at Tejano Ranch

Art Sunny posterTonight will be electric at Tejano Ranch. All eyes will be glued to the stage as San Antonio powerhouses Sunny Sauceda and Art Tigerina bring their high octane show to the north Austin Tejano Club.

After starting out in Conjunto with his father, Sauceda began his professional career with Grupo Vida before branching out on his own. He also collaborated with other accordion greats Joel Guzm├ín and David Lee Garza on the album Polkas, Gritos y Acorde├│nes, winning both the Grammy and Latin Grammy Awards for Best Tejano Album in 2005. Since releasing his first solo project, Sunny, also in 2005, the be-gloved acordeonista has released four more studio albums including 2010’s Homenaje A Mi Padre, which was a very personal tribute to his father who passed away late last year.

Art Tigerina, another alumnus of Grupo Vida, will also be there. The Grammy-nominated sax player and vocalist masterfully works the stage and will bring his passionate style to further compliment Sunny’s musical chaos.

Long story short: ENERGY. And lots of it. Both are sizzling performers and there’s never a dull moment. Definitely a spectacle and a thoroughly fun show.
