Texas Music Extravaganza Film broadcast on PBS Television
KLRN Ch-9 San Antonio, TX will be airing the Texas Music Extravaganza Saturday, December 12th at 10pm.
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.
