Texas Music Extravaganza Dec. 12 promo on YouTube

The extraordinary impact of some of South Texas’ most celebrated musicians is the focus of this documentary musical journey. Filmed in High Definition, the Texas Music Extravaganza includes performances from a pivotal concert on Aug. 27, 2009 in San Antonio, Texas that featured alumni of the Sir Douglas Quintet and Texas Tornados with Augie Meyers, Flaco Jimenez, Shawn Sahm, Jack Barber, Ernie Durawa and others. The concert benefited the March of Dimes organization, and also featured dynamic performances by Grammy Award winner Raul Malo, The Krayolas, West Side Horns and Adam Aguilar. The event marked the debut of the highly anticipated supergroup the Vato Valley Boys, featuring Augie and Flaco with Bluegrass legends Byron Berline, Dan Crary and John Hickman. Produced by Bill Millet and directed by award winning Latino film maker AJ Garces, the Texas Music Extravaganza Film also delves into the legacy of Doug Sahm, Augie Meyers and Flaco Jimenez;

the San Antonio sound.

Texas Music Extravaganza The San Antonio Sound

Augie Meyers pure San Antonio Chicano rock is prominently featured in the Texas Music Extravaganza , filmed last year at Leon Springs Dancehall in San Antonio with a dazzling cast of performers playing tribute to the music he and Doug Sahm made. It's an impressive lineup, starring Shawn Sahm, Flaco Jimenez , Raul Malo , Vato Valley Boys, BCH with Byron Berline , the Krayolas, and Adam Aguilar. The extravaganza redefines contemporary Tex-Mex not only through Sahm's and Meyer's music ("She's About a Mover," "Dinero") but by the musicians they influenced (Raul Malo's "All You Ever Do Is Bring Me Down") and the songs that taught them ("Volver, Volver" à la Flaco). The DVD dances with visual flair, and the soundtrack preserves it. Maybe there were musicians in your family too? Check out interesting family history blogs for search information.
