Their sound is unique, yet familiar…it’s like something brand new on top of something we’ve all known and loved forever. Once you’ve experienced a show, you’ll never want to miss another. Even the coldest nights in Green Bay won’t stop cheese heads from braving the ice and snow to see those dudes from Texas play! Dave Perez: (Accordion and Vocals)---Born and raised in Grand Prairie, Dave purchased his first push button accordion in May of 1998 at the age of 22. He soon began performing at a small Mexican restaurant just a few blocks from his home.
Over the next eight years, Dave would form a vocal and playing style which allowed him to cover many different types of music. One day, Dave decided to venture beyond the walls of the restaurant, where he had become so accustomed to performing. His curiosity led him onto a little stage in the Stockyards of Fort Worth, TX. Week after week, he returned to the Stockyards, to jam with various local musicians, and eventually agreed to put his first band together...that band is known today as the Tejas Brothers! John Garza: (Upright Bass and Vocals)---Born in Irving, he began playing bass in the late 80’s.
He never really was into the music of his era, thanks to his father’s love of early rock and roll. In the early 90s he hit the blues jams in Dallas and Fort Worth. His first jam was at Schooners, hosted by local blues patriarch Brian “Hash Brown” Calway. He was a member of Pat Boyack and the Prowlers, with which he recorded two CDs.
John then worked for two years with Holland K. Smith. It was during this time he began playing upright bass. Just before Tejas Brothers, he worked with The Kenny Traylor Band. Read more on Last.fm.
