April 3-5, 2009 — Is it the Strawberry Festival or the Poteet Music Festival? ….

Actually it is two competing events.  I have no problem with competition, there will be enough people converging on tiny lil Poteet, TX for each of the events to be a big success.   However, I do find the advertising to be a little misleading.   The commercial that I heard for the Poteet Music Festival (which is actually the event held in The Saloon ,which I believe used to be called the Strawberry Saloon) starts out saying “It’s Strawberry Time, and that means yadda yadda  …, and gives the lineup for the Saloon, to me it kinda makes it sound like that is the only event where Tejanos will be performing, combine that with the fact that I’ve only seen one Tejano website even mentioning the actual festival (kudos to Tejano Live  for giving both events equal billing).   People are going to have some tough choices to make BUT they need to have ALL the information.

The return of Jennifer Pena to Fan Fair, TEJANO BEAT SCOOPS everybody! Check out the EXCLUSIVE video interview….

tbjenOn Friday (Mar 20), Jennifer Pena made a “surprise” appearance at Fan Fair.  Although it was supposed to be a secret (which makes more sense to me, I may have to get up on my soap box about that in a later blog  LOL) word had gotten out.  Unfortunately they switched her stage at the last minute, causing folks who had waited for over two hours to miss her performance, but Tejano Beat was on top of things . 

Click here to go to Tejano BEAT to check out the video interview , some great pix (like the one one that I ripped off) and a story on what went down (You will find  two different posts on this event, one with the story and pictures and another with the video). 

Bookmark Tejano Beat and keep checking back for more Fan Fair articles, photos and videos.
