Rancho Alegre Reviews – Tejano Dawgs – Traffic Jam Mix Show – 4/6/11

Wednesday night, Rancho Alegre piled in the cruiser and headed down south to Applebees on William Cannon and I-35 for our first Traffic Jam Mix Show. We enjoyed a lovely sunset, a cool breeze, food and drink, and spent some quality time with the crew from Para La Gente 1560 AM and, most importantly, got to check out the Tejano Dawgs.

Since it was a school  night for us, we didn’t stay long enough to check out a special appearance by Ruben Ramos, but we’re sure it was fantastic. Gato always puts on a great show.

Rancho Alegre Spotlight: Tortilla Factory 1973 and 1974

We here at Rancho Alegre were saddened to hear of the passing of Tony “Ham” Guerrero, leader and founding member of the legendary Tortilla Factory. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Guerrero family, and we express our deepest condolences. Ham influenced countless musicians over the years, and he will be greatly missed, but his legacy will live on.

Rancho Alegre Spotlight: “She’s About a Mover” by Ruben Naranjo

Here at Rancho Alegre, we talk. A lot. Frequently we’ll have more than one topic going at once. During Saturday’s marathon discussion, Frank mentioned that Ruben Naranjo did a cover of She’s About a Mover. So when we got home, I listened to it. And I listened again. And again. It was mind-blowing.
