It was a great pleasure to have been invited to a private gathering in celebration of Santa Cecilia patron saint of musicians. This was called the day of the accordion. This private event has been taking place for some years in Mexico, but was held in south Texas for the first time at Hacienda Los Papalotes in Pharr. Who's who in the Norteño scene comes out to spend a day of comradery, food, and music. It is a one of a kind reunion.

I want to thank my good friend Don Juan Villarreal for his hospitality and for inviting me to this incredible event that he organized. I was fortunate to meet up with musicians, radio personalities, and pioneers that I use to listen to when I was a young kid growing up in south Texas. Living in the Rio Grande Valley back in the 70s, afforded me the opportunity to be a part of both the Conjunto and Norteño world; similar in some respects (accordion), but so different in so many other levels. It would take a book to explain the differences in social, political, philosophical, and music styles. Here is a glimpse of the other half of my world.

Hugo De La Cruz, Padre, Rogelio Boteo Rios, Gilberto
The last time I saw Don Rigoberto Rosales was back in 1974 at his house in Reynosa Tamaulipas, Mx. He is a friend of my father's.

Alla en el Rancho Grande!  Incredible pictures.  This is the first time I see a lot of the norteno pioneers together in one place.  I have some old LPs of Monteclaro  and Carlos y Jose.
