Al Reed’s Visit to SA Was a Flashback to the Past

Al Reed is among the last of the Mohicans when it comes to true Chicano rock’n’roll music legends.

This means the January 1958 Fox Tech High School graduate – born Albert Gonzales — preceded the Royal Jesters plus Little Joe and Sunny Ozuna, who with Isidro López are considered to be the “Founding Fathers of Tejano Music,” in recording his first single.

“My Padrino (Godfather) sparked my interest in music when he gave me a guitar and my first performance was when I sang Hank Williams’ ‘Jambalaya’ during a talent show at Ira Ogden Elementary School,” the 72-year-old vocalist said during an interview at Mi Tierra Café.

It was Rapping at Noche Caliente

By Jonathan Liles

Surprise!!! Its Devin The Dude!

River City Attractions (RCA), received an invite to Noche Caliente at the last minute on October 29, 2010. We were expecting to see a concert with San Antonio Hip Hop artist King Kyle Lee as the main event. However Kyle Lee along with Swishahouse Legend DJ Michael “5000” Watts were actually there to host and promote for Devin The Dude. Devin the Dude is an underground rap artist well known for his unique rapping style and 15 year relationship with Houston based Rap-A-Lot Records (ended in 2008). The experience of the show itself was indeed unique. When Devin The Dude performed all the fans surrounded him in a big circle as he performed music from his latest album Suite 420. River City Attractions would like to give special thanks to Kyle Lee, Michael “5000” Watts, Devin The Dude, Core, Big Q and Noche Caliente for putting on a great show.
