Tejano Stage Shows Have Changed So Much Throughout the Years
TWO TYPE'S OF SHOWS:
If you are a fan of live Tejano music, you have noticed big-time changes in the stage shows of the bigger bands. While some shows have not changed at all. You have the all-out productions with shows of Siggno and AJ Castillo and then you have the puro Conjunto shows where all that extra fluff is not needed. I love both types of shows just depending on the artist.
THE BIG TEJANO SHOWS OF THE 90S:
When La Mafia, Intocable, and David Lee Garza used to roll through town, you usually saw 18-wheelers or those box trucks with the artist logos all-over them rolling through town. The stage setups were massive, hundreds of those huge par cans, stacks of speakers, and awesome Introductions before the bands hit the stage! I mean, check out this setup from a La Sombra show at the Yellow Rose in Corpus back in the '90s. These awesome photos show what Tejano productions looked like in the 90s Ls Sombra, in my opinion, change live shows forever for Tejano music in the '90s. I compare a full stage show of La Sombra back in the day, the full stage 'Rock-teno' stage show of Siggno today. Just my personal opinion. Did you ever get to see La Sombra live?
