|County Fair taps Hispanic acts for Aug. 9
On Friday, Aug. 9, a lineup of Hispanic performers will spice up the Chris Beck Arena. Headliners include La Original Banda el Limón, with Don Cheto and Intocable.
Emcee and performer Juan Razo “Don Cheto,” popular radio and television personality, known as "el hombre del vozarrón" ("the loud-voiced man"), will open the evening extravaganza.
Cheto hosts the “El Show de Don Cheto “(The Don Cheto Show), an hour-long Spanish language variety show.
The first featured act, Intocable, is a Tejano/Norteño musical group from Zapata, Texas started by friends Ricky Muñoz and René Martínez in the early 90's. Intocable could very well be considered the most influential group in Tejano. Intocable has sold out many arena events and won multiple awards, including their first Grammy in 2005. The group is expected to perform some of their popular songs including, “Robarte Un Beso”, “Prometi”, “Arrepientete” and "Llueve."
The evening will round out with headliner La Original Banda el Limón, whose hit single "La Original" was No. 1 on the Monitor Latino charts recently.
The Original Banda el Limón is one of the oldest groups in contemporary Mexican bands, forming in the mid-'60s and led by clarinetist Salvador Lizarraga Sánchez.
Throughout their history, the group has balanced old and new forms more than others and was of the first artists to amplify and synthesize their sound.
