hobbs061915(AustinVida) – Tonight, Tejano superstar Gary Hobbs returns to Desperados in Kyle. The new club has continued to grow and book the biggest names in Tejano music since opening early this year. Famous for his smooth voice and movie star good looks, the charismatic hitmaker from Eagle Pass is an Austin favorite and frequent performer at Tejano music festivals here in the Live Music Capital of the World.

After beginning his career nearly 30 years ago, Hobbs has worked hard to remain successful and popular in a difficult industry that has seen its ups and downs. In 2001, he began his own independent record label, AMMX Records, which, in addition to Hobbs himself, has recorded other top Tejano acts like The Hometown Boys, Ram Herrera, Grupo Stampede and Grupo Fama, and has expanded to include Norteño, Pop en Español, Cumbias, and Christian Music. While he has had many hits during his career, one of his most popular songs is “Las Miradas.”

Long story short: Gary always brings a crowd with his showmanship and solid, synthesizer-flavored Tejano.

Deperados is located at 110 W. Center Street, just west of I-35 in Kyle. The doors open at 8 p.m.The cover charge is $10 before 9 p.m. and $12 after 9 p.m.  21+ are welcome.  For more information, message Desperados on Facebook.

I'm a web developer, graphic designer, and writer, and I manage all things technical, administrative, and creative at Austin's own Rancho Alegre, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and promoting Conjunto music. Our projects include a nonprofit record label, digitizing recordings, interviewing legendary and up-and-coming artists, maintaining and constructing a historical record of Tejano and Conjunto music, connecting artists with professional and business services, affordable merch, and presenting the annual Rancho Alegre Conjunto Festival and various events throughout the year. I am a Professional Member of the Recording Academy and an Associate member of the Latin Recording Academy.
