The historic Cactus Theater is proud to welcome back Los Texmaniacs to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month!
Max Baca and Los Texmaniacs are the Past, Present and Future of Conjunto music. Conjunto may be a familiar sound to residents of Texas, but its worldwide appeal can be surprising. Combine a hefty helping of Tex Mex conjunto, simmer with several parts Texas rock, add a daring dash of well-cured blues, and R&B riffs, and you’ve cooked up the tasty Grammy winning Los Texmaniacs groove. Max Baca is a legend on the bajo sexto, a twelve string guitar-like instrument, and his nephew, Josh Baca, is fast attaining legendary status on the accordion, with those two instruments creating the core of the lively conjunto sound. Los Texmaniacs are the new worldwide kings of Texas Roots music, feeding the masses with only the best in musical fare, cooked up from a wide-ranging experience. While Max Baca has participated on eleven Grammy award winning projects, the band themselves won their first Grammy in 2010 and a nomination for their last Smithsonian Folkways recording in 2019, Borders y Bailes – featuring Lyle Lovett and Rick Trevino. Whether playing an intimate house concert or as an acoustic trio to rocking stage/theater/street dances the band always entertains and educates. This music is not a dusty museum relic, but a vital heartbeat for a group of folks who truly have one foot on either side of the border and live a daily code-switching identity.
We’ve shifted the start time of this concert to approximately 9 pm so we can screen the Texas Tech vs NC State road game on the Cactus silver screen as a complimentary offering to the community. Your ticket to the concert can serve as your seat holder for the Tech game as well…so arrive early to catch the game, if you’d like! We’ll check tickets after the game to insure all concert ticketholders have their reserved seats for the post-game concert/celebration we all anticipate!
