Video: Max Baca and Dwayne Verheyden getting ready for Sunday



On Tuesday, we caught bajo sexto master Max Baca practicing at home with Dutch accordion wiz kid Dwayne Verheyden. They performed these two Flaco Jiménez classics ahead of today's performance at the Tejano Conjunto Festival. Here's the complete schedule for the TCF grand finale, which, at the end of Flaco Jiménez's set, will include a performance with his brother Santiago Jiménez Jr., according to Baca. It would mark the first time the two brothers play together since 1982. — Enrique Lopetegui
