marcos_dat(AustinVida) – Sunday August 23,  Dance Across Texas welcomes award-winning Tejano superstar Marcos Orozco, along with his top-notch backing band, Grupo Rebelde. The group will bring their special brand of romantic cumbias, and rancheras featuring one of the most beautiful voices in Tejano music to the new club, which continues to bring some of the biggest acts in Tejano music.

The multi-talented singer, songwriter, producer, arranger and musician began his career in the 1980s with groups Blackjack, Powerhouse, and the legendary Fabulosos 4, but it was his time as the lead singer for David Lee Garza y Los Musicales that propelled him to Tejano music mega popularity. His unmistakable voice is on the megahits ”Tonta,” “Una Noche Mas,” “Tu Boca Roja,” and more, which are still on heavy rotation at Tejano music stations and on DJ playlists everywhere.

After his time with the Musicales, Orozco embarked on a successful solo career with his own group. Tracks from his solo efforts include “Baila Morena,” “Costumbres,” “Una Historia de Amor,” and “Como Un Tigre.” His most recent album, Buenos Dias, is available now, with the single “Buenos Dias Amor” on Tejano stations from coast to coast.

Long story short: With one of the most unique voices in Tejano music history belting out some of his classics and latest hits, the dancefloor will be packed with shiny boots, sparkling belt buckles, and twirling cowboy hats.

Dance Across Texas is located at 2201 East Ben White Blvd just east of I-35 in south Austin. Doors open at 6 p.m. Tickets are $12 presale and $15 at the door. 18+ welcome. For more information, contact Dance Across Texas at 512-910-4000.
