Tap Your Feet to Tejano

Quick musical quiz: In what state was tejano music born? Here’s a big clue: Tejano is Spanish for Texan. Yep, Texas is the right answer. The unique Tex-Mex music, which combines styles of both central and south Texas and northeastern Mexico—as well as European waltzes and polkas—is the specialty of the David Perez Band. Hear the five-generation family band perform on June 23, 6:30–8:30 p.m., at a free KXBX concert in Library Park in Lakeport.
