On July 15, the Music Under the Star series continues with a special concert featuring Grammy Award winners Los TexManiacs with special guest and "Living Legend" Flaco Jiménez. An enchanting combination of Tex Mex conjunto, Texas rock, and a touch of well-cured blues and R&B riffs, best describes the TexManiacs groove. Founded by Max Baca (bajo sexto, vocals), the TexManiacs are a product of his wide-ranging experience touring and recording with everyone from his father's family conjunto, Flaco Jiménez, the original Texas Tornados, Los Super Seven and even the Rolling Stones.
Few if any artists in conjunto and Tejano music have received the level of acclaim Flaco Jiménez has enjoyed over the course of a career that spans six decades. Without compromising his musical vision, Jiménez has introduced the traditional conjunto sound to mainstream pop and country listeners thanks to his collaborations with the Texas Tornados, Dwight Yoakam, and the Mavericks, and he is celebrated by adventurous rock fans through his work with Ry Cooder, Carlos Santana, Doug Sahm, and the Rolling Stones.
