“I want to personally thank all my family & friends for joining us,” Luna tells Tejano Nation. “The city of Angleton and surrounding areas came out and helped me celebrate but also made a clear statement Tejano Music is alive! Thank you to Ram, David, J.R., and Mario for their amazing talents and for bringing the musica to the stage. It was an epic night!”

Luna celebrated his birthday just months after recovering from COVID-19 when the veteran promoter tested positive in July and developed complications including pneumonia.

The promoter, who was inducted into the Tejano ROOTS Hall of Fame in 2010, and Dirty South Venue will be hosting the “Tejano Taco Tuesday” concert series with the best in Tejano for live music entertainment. The artist lineup will be released at a later date.
