Special to the Parade
La Villita Dance Hall in San Benito will be featuring five of the premiere conjuntos every Saturday in the month of December 2011.
Los Fantasmas will hit the stage Dec. 3, Gilberto Perez y Sus Compadres is slated for Dec. 10, Los Angeles Del Sur is scheduled for Dec. 17, Ruben De La Cruz y Su Conjunto will play on Dec. 24, and Ruben Garza y Su Conjunto has the Dec. 31 slot.
Rogelio Nuñez, co-founder of the Narciso Martinez Cultural Arts Center and one of the organizers of the annual Narciso Martinez Conjunto Festival in San Benito, spoke favorably of the events.
“This is a line-up not to miss. Spread the word. Invite friends,” Nuñez said via email. “Support local business and most importantly, help to preserve America’s music tradition, the Rio Grande Valley’s musical genre, Texas Mexican Conjunto Music and the premiere conjunto music dance hall, La Villita.”
