The Conjunto Conservation Society
Hole Comadres Y Comprades,
Ever wonder what makes us say hmmmm?
Well please, any Tejano bands out there don't take this wrong, it is not an intent to put any musician down by all means. It just an opinion
So let me say just this. Tenjano Bands
Recently I went with my wife and friends ( I had to bend the rule a li'l )from here in Austin, and drove to San Antonio. We went to see Jay Perez at Graham Central Station. We must have arrived around 9:oo P.M. The place was kind of warm, and seemed the A/C was not working as well, or they had it down to save some paka. Ok, at 10:00 P.M. Jay came on stage, played for 30 minutes, and great music by the way, and took a long, long break. Is something wrong with this picture?
Ok, Now CONJUNTO BANDS
We all have been to several outings, and clubs and Conjunto dances where they feature great talented Conjunto Bands. If in most cases an ad may state Dance, El Pody, La Musica starts at 7:00 P.M. ...You can bet your last Bud Light and dollar that they will start playing at that time. Heck I have seen grupos already playing imaginary instruments behind the stage before they get on stage. And to put the icing on the cake, they play for an hour song after song after song before they take a break, and by the way...how many groups of conjunto take 15 minute breaks anyway? They know that if they don't play, Conjunto Fans won't come back. They love to play and see every different style of dancing when we get on El Piso. They love to see the Vatos Stacy's, Tapitas, Y Las babies all dressed up. You see there eyes wondering around and are thinking as they are playin "Did this Vato get his Stacy's on ebay, or at a regular store, or maybe a garage sale?...Hijole....lol
Ok, so how many of you agree, please, again this is not an intent to bring down Tejano Bands I just want people from the Tejano World know what the big difference is. And the big difference is
PURO PINCHE CONJUNTO!!!!
By the way,
Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads, Papi's, Fathers, Daddy's, Ole Man, El Chigon, Jefe's out there.
