Jimmy Gonzalez Played His Final Ever-Show in Victoria
As we remember Jimmy Gonzalez on his birthday, let us remember that Jimmy had just played his final ever-show at Community Center Dome. I believe it was a private event. I just remember seeing pictures of the stage setup on the floor of the Dome. Were you at that show?
The Grammy Award-winning Jimmy Gonzalez of Grupo Mazz passed away on Wednesday, June 6, 2018, at Methodists Hospital in San Antonio hospital from complications of diabetes. He was 67 years old when he passed. Jimmy's next scheduled show was going to be as the headliner at the Aransas Pass Shrimporee.
Jimmy Gonzalez recorded over 50 albums in his career going back to the days of the original Joe Lopez and Jimmy Gonzalez Y Grupo Mazz. Of those 50+ albums, 18 of them were recorded at Freddie Records in Corpus Christi after Joe and Jimmy parted ways.
Currently, Jimmy's son, Mike, is keeping his dad's music alive with his group, Mike and the Iconiczz, and is currently working on a tribute to his dad. The new project will feature many different Tejano stars singing his dad's music. Be on the lookout for Mike Gonzalez and the Iconiczz coming to Victoria soon. Keep it locked into KLUB Tejano 106.9 to hear the latest from the Iconiczz.
