(AustinVida) – Tonight, Jaime y Los Chamacos will make their debut at Desperados in Kyle. The San Antonio powerhouse will bring their high octane stage show to the south suburb, offering a night of conjunto classics and new recordings. 

It’s been nearly three decades since they were chamacos, but Jaime DeAnda and the guys still have the same energy and charisma they did when they first started, and their fans still love them just as much as they did then. Their career has included numerous Grammy and Latin Grammy nominations, two Tejano Music Awards, and hits like “Yolanda,” “Como Te Llamas Paloma,” “Ex-Novia,” and “Pajaro Negro.” Their most recent album, Born to Be Bad, was released in March and features popurris of favorites and greatest hits as well as special guest conjunto legend Rene Joslin (father of Chamacos bajo sexto player Roel Joslin) on “Al Pie de Este Arbol.”

Long story short: A great band with solid musical credentials with a great following makes for an awesome show. Conjunto power!

Desperados 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 $12 before 9 p.m. and $15 after 9 p.m.  21+ are welcome.  For more information, message Desperados on Facebook.

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 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, and presenting the annual Rancho Alegre Conjunto Festival and various events throughout the year.
