Los Texmaniacs

When: Fri., Sept. 22, 8 p.m. 2017

Max Baca and his band Los Texmaniacs are keeping the conjunto sound alive and well. Baca, perhaps best dubbed a neo-traditionalist, has been mentored by Flaco Jimenez (who quite frequently plays and records with the band) and well-noted as a true master at his instrument, the traditional Mexican bajo sexto (a 12-string, guitar-like implement). Like a journey through a diverse selection of old South Texas dancehalls on some bygone Saturday night, a typical live set from the Grammy-winning group includes a little bit of Texas country, a little bit of Tex-Mex rock and roll, a little bit of Tejano, and, of course, the rich conjunto tunes that anchor it all.

Price: $3
