Alright Tejano Fans in Austin TX, this is your chance to show that Tejano LIVES in the live music capitol of the world, not only will you get to see Michael headlining (on the Pavillion stage)  this huge event, you will also get to see what all the hype on AJ Castillo is about (trust me it’s not just hype, I haven’t seen him perform as a solo artist . yet but I have seen him with La Diferenzia and heard his music online , and he ROCKS , and to add icing to the cake, you will also get to see the Chris Perez Band, (or should I say Chris Perez new Project, I”m wondering if he’s picked a new name yet, perhaps you will find out on the 30th).   It sounds like a fun-filled family event.
