Los Texmaniacs are a modern spin on the traditional conjunto sound from South Texas. The quartet adds blues and rock-and-roll influences to the traditional pairing of button accordion and bajo sexto. Moreover, Los Texmaniacs explore their instruments to find new ways of interpreting the sounds of the Texas-Mexico border.
Max Baca, bajo sexto
