David Beck’s Tejano Weekend premieres ‘For Somebody’s Sake’ official music video

The Tex-Mex band released the music video for the accordion-fueled stomper from upcoming sophomore album.

David Beck’s Tejano Weekend is set to release their highly-anticipated new album, David Beck’s Tejano Weekend, Vol. 2, on October 15, but the central Texas-based band dropped the official music video for the disc’s lead single “For Somebody’s Sake” this week.


“‘For Somebody’s Sake’ is one of our favorite cumbias to play,” David Beck tells Americana Highways. “It’s exciting and visceral. I was pretending to be John Lennon when I wrote and recorded this song, he was the master of hopeful aggression.”

The visual was directed by Nolan Blair and Julia Renée for Texture Cinema and is the first video to include dancers for the band, which used some of their closest fans to be a part of the experience filmed in a 1920s school gym in Martindale, Texas.

“It was such a blast,” Beck added.

All five band members – David BeckDees StriblingDavid HerreraJohn Saucedo, and Peter Huysman – are Lone Star State natives with a penchant for guitars, accordions, bajo sexto, trumpet, percussion, and keyboards. A fresh band on the Tex-Mex scene that would immediately raise eyebrows performing Tejano music with English lyrics by a self-described “tall, goofy white boy” showcasing sonic authenticity at every turn.
