JR GomezTonight will be a non-stop party at the Blue Moon in South Austin! Some big-time Tejano names will be on-hand to celebrate with Austin’s own J.R. Gomez, including Max Baca, David Farias, Ruben Ramos and Ram Herrera.

Gomez is a multi-talented and well-known vocalist and accordionist and is a frequent guest all around town. Best known for his tenure with Tejano superstar Jay Perez and with A.B. Quintanilla III and the Kumbia All Starz, the man can definitely work a crowd, so you won’t be disappointed.

Special guests on-hand will be bajo sexto master Max Baca, his former fellow Texmaniac accordion virtuoso David Farias, Tejano superstar Ram Herrera, and the legendary El Gato Negro himself, Austin’s own Ruben Ramos. At shows like these, you really don’t know who else will show up.

Long story short: If you’re a Tejano fan in Austin, this is the place to be tonight. And no cover? Seriously…GO.

The Blue Moon Bar and Grill is located at 2200 S IH 35 at the northeast corner of Oltorf and I-35, next to Best Western. No cover. 21+ welcome. Show starts at 8 p.m.
