AmMusFest 2013 [IL]

Starting in 1981, FitzGerald’s American Music Festival has grown from a three-band barbeque night to one of the most critically acclaimed summer festivals in the Midwest. The festival’s main focus is roots/Americana music — everything from straight-ahead rock to soul, rockabilly, country, blues, jazz and bluegrass.  We welcome bands from all over the country and right here at home.

Saturday, July 6th, one of the featured bands is Texas based Max Baca & Los Texmaniacs – Combine a hefty helping of Tex Mex conjunto, simmer with several parts Texas rock, add a daring dash of well-cured blues, and R&B riffs, and you’ve cooked up the tasty TexManiacs groove. Not to say that this group’s sound is for musical gourmets only… it is,  “hip music everyone can relate to.” Los Texmaniacs — feed the masses, with only the best in musical fare. Founded by Max Baca (bajo sexto, vocals), the TexManiacs are a product of his wide-ranging experience touring and recording with everyone from his father’s family conjunto, Flaco Jimenez, the original Texas Tornados, Los Super Seven and even the Rolling Stones. www.texmaniacs.com
The venue is located at 6615 Roosevelt Road, Berwyn, IL 60402 and for ticket information and the complete line up, visit www.fitzgeraldsnightclub.com/fest or call (708) 788-2118.
