Rancho Alegre Interview - Little Joe

They won Best Album at this year’s Tejano Music Awards for their most recent album, Lo Que Me Dejaste, and front man Jesse Turner took home back to back Best Male Vocalist honors in 2011 and 2012. AND his duet with Elida Reyna, “Juntos Hasta Morir,” earned him a share of Song of the Year and Best Vocal Duo as well.

Rancho Alegre Interview - Conjunto Romo

As the traditional audience ages, everyone’s talking about how to get young people to listen to Conjunto and Tejano music. Kyle, Texas, has an answer with Conjunto Romo.

Meet Navor Romo…bassist, bandleader and vocalist. Together, he and his sons Cedrick (accordion/vocals), Noe (bajo sexto) and JJ (drums), are making their mark in Conjunto music. And, in the case of Noe and JJ, juggling high school at the same time.
