Event Pick: TexMex Holiday Fiesta
TexMex Holiday Fiesta
Celebrate the holidays Texas-style with a special performance at ACL Live
by Emma Banks
If you thought Tex-Mex was exclusively a culinary indulgence, think again: Los Texmaniacs, along with ACL Hall of Fame inductee Flaco Jiménez, will be descending on their state’s capital for a fiesta filled with self-proclaimed “spicy” holiday fun.
TexMex Holiday Fiesta, at the Moody Theater, will feature the two aforementioned Grammy Award winners, plus Peter Rowan, Rick Trevino, Augie Meyers, Johnny Nicholas, Rosie Flores, and one very special yet-to-be-announced guest. After starting with both group and solo performances, the musicians will share seasonal songs, traditions, and memories and conclude with a holiday sing-along.
This isn’t Los Texmaniacs’ first rodeo — far from it. As one of the most revered conjunto bands in the world, the group’s expertise in all things Tex-Mex knows no bounds. Joining forces with fellow award-winning artists is just the cherry on top (or, rather, the jalapeño, if we’re committed to the theme) to what is sure to be an evening for the books. Sold? Us too.
