Accordionist Anthony Treviño announced his “journey” has ended with The Hometown Boys after over a decade with the legendary Conjunto group.

The accordionist confirmed the news via social media on Sunday.

“I would like to thank my family, friends, promoters, DJs and most of all THE FANS for over a decade of memories,” Treviño posted on Facebook. “Unfortunately, my journey with The Hometown Boys has come to an end. You guys have made my life the greatest, everything I had ever set out to do, all my goals, my achievements, and my awards have all been because of you all and I’m forever grateful.”

The Hometown Boys are a family band from Lubbock, Texas, and rose to fame in the 1990s, enjoying success unheard of for most conjuntos. They built their trademark sound on beautifully blended vocal harmonies, which were supported by a strong, steady, unrelenting conjunto beat and accentuated by the sharp, edgy, but smooth accordion of Joe Martinez, who passed away in 1998 of a heart attack at age 34.

Many fans believe Treviño did justice to that sound as an accordionist for the Grammy-winning group.

“I have never been let go from a job before so I’m not sure how to handle all this but I know the Lord above has a plan for me,” Treviño added. “I’m a firm believer in that. Thank you all again for all of the great memories. I’m just as hurt and saddened by all this as you are but new management seems to think I’m no longer a good fit for the band. I love you all and just maybe I will see you all again someday.”
