Camaradas de Conjunto: I'm already working on the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center's 31st Annual Tejano Conjunto Festival en San Antonio 2012, but before I give you an update, I just want to wish all of you and your familias the very best of health and happiness during this holiday season y feliz dia de las gracias. We all have a lot to be thankful for, gracias a dios. 

The 31st Annual will be held from May 15-20 at the Guadalupe Theatre and Rosedale Park so put it on your calendars. I should be booking the conjuntos within the next month or so and once again, I'm asking for your input. Who are the best conjuntos performing today and who do you think should definitely be at next year's festival? I can't guarantee that I'll be able to include everyone you mention because I'm limited by time and money, but I do guarantee that I'll take all of your recommendations into account and put the best line-up together that I can, given my limitations. As usual, I try to have a one-of-a-kind line-up with a  good mix of those conjunto legends that are still living and popular performers, plus a healthy mix of new, up-and-coming conjunto artists. 

Also, we're looking for talented visual artists and graphic designers to participate in this year's 31st Annual Tejano Conjunto Festival Poster Contest. The Overall Winner receives a $1,000 cash prize and the winning design becomes the official poster for the 31st Annual Tejano Conjunto Festival. Please spread the word to your visual artist friends. The rules and guidelines will be up soon at http://www.guadalupeculturalarts.org Deadline for submission is February 17.

Como siempre, gracias por su apoyo and may your and your familias have a healthy and happy holiday season llena de bendiciones. Juan

I agree. I've never seen Flaco live. I was hoping he would perform last year but no dice!
Fingers crossed!

So many great conjuntos to choose from, but definitely Los Fantasmas Del Valle and Conjunto Kingz de Flavio Longoria. 

I'd love to see the return of the accordion and bajo workshops too.

Camaradas: thanks for your suggestions and responses. Keep them coming. I'm formulating the plan and line-up for the festival and will start booking soon. I guess you heard that Johnny "El Brujo" Cruz was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident last week. We lost another talented conjunto accordionist and vocalist. QEPD El Brujo. And please spread the word on the Tejano Conjunto Festival Poster Contest. Guidelines should be up soon at http://www.guadalupeculturalarts.org

Jappy Jaladays and many blessings of health and happiness to you and your familias. Juan

Sure would like the Accordion Workshop for Tuning,Repair and Maintenance to be recorded on a DVD so we could purchase one. Might be a good way to raise funds.

Los de la Cruz from the Dallas area would love to take the stage again! An even mix from cities across Texas is always nice for a great balance.

I second that vote, Karlitos.  I'll go a little further, and raise your bid for a reunion of Juan Moreno AND Jaime De Anda playing the set together.  Nombre, estaria de aquellas!  I'll raise your bid again, and put my bid for bringing back LOBO IV.  Nombre, puro conjunto heavies.  Oh and definitely Los Padrinos.  They're like always playing in San Anto to the locales.  Be good to see them playing for the internacionales!

Juan, Please thoughtfully consider inviting Conjunto Baraja De Oro to this years festival, I'm coming all the way from Arizona, and they are one of the most talented and popular conjuntos playing today as well as receiving a Tejano music award this past year.

Hola Juan

Can't wait till May comes around it's my favorite time of the year.  I would like to suggest a few Conjunto for this years festival.

My first suggestion would be San Antonio's own Los Padrinos.  They are great ambassadors for Conjunto music and they have a great traditional San Antonio sound.





My second suggestion would be Conjunto mi Gusto from Snyder Texas they have a young phenomenal accordionist Jordan and they have a solid sound/repertoire.  Also CarlosJesus51 is a Reyes forum member that is also member of the group.  He comes quite often as a fan to the festival and it would be nice to see them perform on stage as performers.





My third suggestion would be San Antonio's 4X4 Leo Aguilera is one of the best on the squeeze box and they have a great sound plus they put on a great live performance.





My fourth suggestion would be Tejano Boys out of Brownsville Texas they are another high energy Conjunto with a great progressive sound.





My fifth suggestion would be Conjunto Clemencia out of Austin Texas.  This new Conjunto features to very talented female musicians Reyes's own suzanbanan Susan Torres one of the most talented female accordionist in Conjunto music and Clemencia Zapata an amazing percussionist and singer.  Not to mention Bradley Jaye Williams on Bajo Sexto and Bubba Hernandez on Bass.





My last suggestion would be an encore performance for my favorite Central Texas Conjunto, Conjunto Romo.  They had a great TCF debut last year and brought a lot of energy and excitement to the lineup.

I'd like to see the old school musicians
Paulino Bernal
Flaco and Santiago Jimenez
Los Dos Gilbertos

Amigo proyecto254, this event would not be appropriate for a norteno band, after all it is a "Tejano Conjunto" festival not an accordion festival.

lol @ el chupacabra

I know this vato who's real feo, he plays the accordion too, we call him cucuy, he'd be a great performer tambien.

But in all seriousness I second the group Conjunto Mi Gusto, that accordion player is bad ass.

Camaradas de Conjunto: thank you for all of your suggestions and know that I've taken all of them into account. Obviously, I can't book all of the bands as I am limited by money and time slots, but I think we have a kick-ass 31st Annual Tejano Conjunto Festival en San Antonio 2012 lined up for you. I'll be posting the new musical line-up and schedule soon. Hope you're making plans to come to the festival May 15-20. 

Also, please help us spread the word on the poster contest:
Attention visual artists and graphic designers: $1,000 cash prize and the winning selection becomes the official poster for the 31st Annual Tejano Conjunto Festival en San Antonio 2012. Deadline for submission is February 17. For complete rules & guidelines go to http://http://www.guadalupeculturalarts.org/docs/TCF_contest_form.pdf
