AUSTIN – If you’re feeling like some groovy Tex-Mex with a little salsa-cumbia rhythms added in, then make plans for a free show with Calle Seis at Blue Moon Bar & Grill in Austin on Thursday, July 2. Also, set to perform at the recurring first Thursday’s event is Nikki Lopez and lots of special guests.
Calle Seis is a band made up from a bunch of musicians that have played together in other bands. Grammy winner Wild Bill Perkins (manager/trumpet) and Grammy winner Jess Lopez (vocals/drums/percussion) met playing for Little Joe Y La Familia, with whom Jess still tours with every weekend. Perkins currently tours with Ruben Ramos and the Mexican Revolution along with Grammy winner Rene Garcia (vocals/trombone) and Grammy winner Chris Rivera (vocals/drums). Grammy winner Mario Vigil (bass,keyboards) tours with Gary Hobbs on the weekends and to round out this all-star cast is legendary guitarist David Guzman (vocals/guitar), one of the best accordion players anywhere, 21-year-old JJ Olivarez (accordion) and the “Charranga King” Hugo Guerrero.
Nikki Lopez started her professional musical career with Los Texas Wranglers at the age of 18. Los Texas Wranglers often referred to her as “La Mexicana Beyoncé” because of her charisma and energy on stage. In 2010 she was awarded “Best Young Female Conjunto Vocalist” by the South Texas Conjunto Association. Her first CD recording, entitled “Los Texas Treats,” with Los Texas Wranglers was released in 2010 and her second single titled “Carnaval” released with Canonazo in 2014.
