"It is with a heavy heart that the Tejano Music National Convention honors the memory of Tejano icon Emilio Navaira," said David Chavez, CEO of Ingenuity and event producer. "Emilio has been part of the Vegas Tejano family from the beginning and along with Raulito, helped launch the Convention."
Emceed by comedian Gilbert Esquivel, TMNC boasts 40+ music acts in its Gran Baile featuring Tejano all-stars Jimmy Gonzalez y Grupo Mazz, Jaime y Los Chamacos, Flaco Jimenez and more. Fans will enjoy a Tejano 'mix-mash' performance by Grammy Award Winner La Santa Cecilia and 2015 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award Winner and legendary Conjunto accordionist, Flaco Jimenez. All-star performances and appearances will be made by Tejano legends Shelly Lares, Boni Mauricio and Johnny Canales, who is slated to receive a star on the Las Vegas Walk of Stars® during the Convention.
TMNC's 'crown jewel' is the Fanfare Expo; the ultimate Tejano Fan Zone featuring unprecedented access to live musical talent, artist meet & greets, autograph sessions, photo ops, and Vegas-style mingling amongst the sounds of Tejano, Conjunto, Rancheras and Tex-Mex Funk.
TMNC is open to the public. Onsite registration begins Friday, August 5th at the Westgate Casino, Las Vegas.
