  2. I really enjoy your website. I like Tejano music and do my part to keep it active by buying Tejano CD’s at Walmart or downloading Tejano songs or albums on Google Play & going to live shows. Can your website be updated more often to keep up with new Tejano albums or upcoming Tejano shows.

  3. There is a new Tejano and Country Nightclub opening up October 11th, 2012 in El Paso, Texas called “TEXAS ROSE” located at 1840 N. Lee Trevino in the Vista Hills Shopping Center. We will be having Tejano Nights every Thursday and Country and Tejano Saturdays and Sundays as well as Live Music. For more info check out the website For bookings contact the General Manager Mark Nunez at (915)255-7048. Hope to see each and everyone of you all out there. 🙂

  4. We have a huge Tejano event coming up at the Ft Worth Convention Center April 21, 2001. It is called presented by Gloves & Guitars and the Paulie Ayala Foundation, called The Tejano Throwdown. It Features 8 Pro boxing matches with a concert following featuring Michael Salgado, Siggno, and Elida Reyna! If you are interested contact me and I will send you a poster for your blog. We are updating our website now for another reference for you.

  5. Hey fellow Gringa,

    I just wanted to request you add Rancho Alegre Radio to a couple of your categories. We are an online radio station out of Austin that also does interviews with artists, music reviews and a variety of other things, including a Tejano/Conjunto events calendar for the Austin-San Marcos area. We post our mixes to YouTube as well. We specialize in rare, out of print and hard to find Tejano and Conjunto, and we play stuff you won’t hear anywhere else.

    Please stop by our website and check us out:

    Thank you so much and keep up the great work!

  11. Gringz,

    Do you know of anywhere around utah or surrounding states where tejano bands come to play?


    • Hi Rich,
      Well w/o looking at each artists tour dates I’m not going to say that Tejano artists never tour in Utah. I would venture to guess that it is a rarity, and that your best bet in seeing a Tejano Act in Utah would be at an event where Tejanos are performing with other Regional Mexican Acts. La Mafia performed in Salt Lake City earlier this year with some big name Gruperos, they were the only Tejanos on the bill. Now in neighboring states, NV has Tejano Events from time to time in Vegas (and casinos in other cities ), and AZ has an active Tejano Scene, you might try Tejano Mike’s board (The Tejano Awarness Board at for info about events in AZ .

  12. Gringz,

  33. I just got my new polka music catalog. On the front page is Paulino Bernal’s new CD. I plan to call and order it tomorrow.

  34. Also, I noticed the information on the new Paulino Bernal recording. I am at work, so I am going to try to sample the album.

  35. I just did a search on “Tejano Awareness Board”. It appears TAB II, the sequel has arrived. I wonder if registration is required.

    • Yes registration is required. I was still registered from last year but forgot my password, had to do one of those “forgot your pasword?” thingys. I haven’t posted anything in there yet.

  36. I happened upon your website while searching for the Tejano Awareness Board, which still appears to be defunct. I always enjoyed corresponding with you on the old TAB.

    • Hey Dave , thanks for dropping by, I’ve always enjoyed corresponding with you as well. Hope you noticed my post about Paulino Bernal’s CD .

      Looks like the Tejano Awareness Board is coming back online Tomorrow March 9!
