Combine a hefty helping of Tex Mex conjunto, simmer with several parts Texas rock, add a daring dash of well-cured blues, and R&B riffs, and you’ve cooked up the tasty Grammy winning Texmaniacs groove.
Founder Max Baca (bajo sexto, vocals) is a legend on the bajo sexto, a twelve string guitar-like instrument, which customarily provides rhythm accompaniment for the button accordion, thus creating the core of the conjunto sound. Max is being credited as turning a traditional folk/roots/conjunto instrument hip again, attracting young, new audiences while maintaining his roots in traditional conjunto.
Los Texmaniacs lineup is
Max Baca (lead vocals & bajo sexto), Josh Baca (Accordion ), Noel Hernandez(bass, backing vocals) and Danny Martinez (drums).
These Guys play a fantastic “Tex Mex Blues,” a genre indigenous to South Texas, particularly San Antonio and regions south thereof. Check out the tonal banter between electric guitar and bajo sexto (baho sexto) on this video.
