"I believe they fill a void that needs attention" It’s been a joy following the Tejas Brothers for the past few years. All along, the band has been up to the challenge of carrying the tradition of Tejano/Texas country music. With such a distinct sound that so clearly honors their influences (Texas Tornados and their solo offshoots, along with classic country artists), Dave Perez and the guys are still able to be fresh, current and continue to evolve as a band. The Tejas Brothers’ evolution has taken the next step with the release of ‘Live A Little More’.
"Lloyd Maines brings out the best in the brothers" Tejas Brothers’ Live a Little More It doesn’t hurt that master knob-turner Lloyd Maines is at the helm. The Grammy-winning producer has worked with everyone from The Dixie Chicks to Robert Earl Keen to The Bad Livers, and he brings out the best in the Brothers (John Garza on bass, Derek Groves on guitar, and Beau Johnson on drums). Musical stalwarts Augie Meyers, Pat Manske, Larry Joe Taylor, and Deryl Dodd make guest appearances and add spice to the gumbo. Still, Perez is the shining star. He wrote or co-wrote all but one of the songs, all of them foot-tapping gems. The exception is “The One and Lonely Me” by Richard Leigh, a Grammy-winning Nashville songwriter who’s been spending a lot of time in Texas lately. Perez wraps his voice around that mid-tempo ballad and has never sounded better.
