In keeping the great Tejano tradition at the Ysleta Mission, the Festival Committee announces “Ysleta Mission presents Tejano Nite” on Saturday, May 16, 2009. Tejano Nite will include all your favorite Tejano styles, from the Tejano big band sounds to the conjunto Tejano style that has been emerging the lastest Tejano internet radio waves.
Featuring Two-Time Grammy award winner Sunny Sauceda. Sunny brings his own conjunto Tejano style directly from San Antonio, the Tejano music capital of the world. Sunny Sauceda encourages Tejano music fans to “Live Free” .
Sunny Sauceda’s career started as a childhood star in San Antonio, recording his first album at 5 years old. During a lifetime spent with music; first with his family then with highly successful groups and now as a solo artist, Sunny’s songwriting, recordings and performances have been enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of fans across the world. As the charismatic front man for Grupo Vida, Sunny Sauceda’s legendary stage presence influenced a decade of up and coming performers – something he is continuing to do even stronger with new artistic freedom.

Also, featuring at the Tejano Nite concert are the original Ambassadors of Tejano Music – The Latin Breed.
If the ol’ famous cliché holds true, “the only constant in life — is change” then these words speak volumes of The Latin Breed. The evolution of Tejano music’s most influential group remains as constant as the deep truth conveyed in the art & sounds rendered in their classic repertoire. Rejuvenated with a spirit of carrying on the authentic flavor of The Latin Breed sound, the band is reliving the buzz worthiness of the early years started back in 1969. For further information on The Latin Breed please visit www.tejanonotes.com.
Tejano Nite concert will also feature El Paso’s own Windy City – A “Chicago” Tribute Band. Windy City is definitely the closest thing you will ever hear to THE GREATEST ROCK BAND of all time, that being “Chicago”. The concert will be on the grounds of the historic Ysleta Mission 131 S. Zaragosa Road. For the latest information, please call the Parish Office at 915-859-9848.
