Get Out Your Dancin' Boots for Western Night with Joe 'King' Carrasco
Team Angels - Vallarta Yacht Club
April 21, 2014
The Vallarta Yacht Club is proud to announce the return of Joe 'King' Carrasco to rock the house on Saturday, May 3, beginning at 6:00 pm.
We'll be serving up Ribs, Charro Beans, Slaw & Apple Pie w / Vanilla Ice Cream.
Plan on joining the fun with dancing to a little bit of Tex Mex and a little bit of Country.
Known as the King of Tex-Mex rock and roll, Joe King Carrasco, creates a stylistic borderland of pop rock and Latin rhythms. His cross-cultural stew blends cumbias, vamp, salsa, surf, reggae, blues, and Latin-tinged polkas. It has been a long road, coming from Dumas, Texas, a dusty little west Texas town where in the 7th grade he started playing in garage bands. In his late teens, he was often lured to the beaches in Southern Mexico and was drawn to the Mexican music he was hearing around him. Back in Texas he joined up with future members of the Texas Tornados and formed a band known as Joe King Carrasco & El Molino and in 1978 released his 1st LP titled “Tex-Mex Rock & Roll.” Somehow this record made its way to England and was re-released by Big Beat Records.
When not touring, Joe King Carrasco can be found at his musical home in Puerto Vallarta, Nacho Daddy, a Mex-Tex restaurant and club with walls tapered with memories, such as posters and photographs of Joes' musical history and travels around the world. Holding court at Nacho Daddy gives Joe King a palace to rock his Tex-Mex and transport those who drink the magic flavored "margaritas" to a place where the "Party Weekend" goes on forever.
Joe King Carrasco, with over 24 albums to his name, now spends much of his spare time writing music and relentlessly searching for the perfect desolate beach to hang out with his dogs. He can often be found exploring the twisty back roads from Coahuila all the way to Chiapas, chasing down good inspiration for another Tex-Mex song.
