With a career spanning over five decades, two Grammy awards, and countless albums and collaborations, the handsome, charismatic, silver-haired Ramos is known for his soulful voice and suave persona. Backing him up is the big sound of the world-class Mexican Revolution, known for its funky accordion and hot brass section. Back in the 1980s, Ramos scored a hit with “El Gato Negro,” which quickly became his nickname among fans and musicians alike. He is also known for frequent collaborations with other artists, especially for his work with fellow legends Roberto Pulido and Little Joe as “Los Tres Amigos.” With other hits like “Canal Seco,” “Voy Navegando,” and “Tierras Planas Del West,” his music is a mainstay on Tejano playlists everywhere.
The Austin icon never disappoints a crowd, belting out his classic Tejano hits, and even dropping in a few Mariachi and R&B selections as well.
Long story short: No one parties quite like Ruben and his crew. Rumor has it that David Marez, Street People, Cañonazo, Nikki Lopez, and Raphael Rodriguez of Los A-T Boyz might show up. You really don’t know just who will walk in the door and join him on stage. Definitely worth the cover and then some.
