rubenramos_okc(AustinVida) – Tonight, El Gato Negro himself, Ruben Ramos, descends on OK Corral along with his big-time band, the Mexican Revolution.

With a career spanning over five decades, two Grammy Awards, and countless albums and collaborations, the handsome, charismatic, silver-haired Ramos is known for his soulful voice and suave persona. Backing him up is the big sound of the world-class Mexican Revolution, known for its funky accordion and hot brass section. Back in the 1980s, Ramos scored a hit with “El Gato Negro,” which quickly became his nickname among fans and musicians alike. He is also known for frequent collaborations with other artists, especially for his work with fellow legends Roberto Pulido and Little Joe as Los Tres Amigos. With other hits like “Canal Seco,” “Voy Navegando,” and “Tierras Planas Del West,” his music is a mainstay on Tejano playlists everywhere.

Their latest CD, El Idolo de Tejas, produced by longtime accordionist/producer/arranger Rick Fuentes, is available now.

Long story short: Ain’t no party like Gato Negro party. If you haven’t seen Ruben and the guys perform live, and you love Austin live music, you’re truly missing out. This will be a great night to experience the charisma, the mega talent, and the energy they’ve been known for all these years.

OK Corral is located at 629 W Ben White Blvd, at the southeast corner of Ben White and South 1st. The doors open at 8 p.m. The cover charge is $12 all night long. 21+ are welcome. For more information, message OK Corral on Facebook.

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.
