Max Baca & Los Texmaniacs - Ballard Park - August 26, 2014
Baca is a Grammy Award winner, and he interspersed explanatory patter into his set to get the Ridgefield vanilla crowd properly oriented. His music is Tex-Mex, tejano, norteno, terms that, if there are differences, they are too subtle for me to discern; Baca also used them interchangeably. His instrument, resembling a 12-string guitar, is actually known as a “bajo sexto”. The accordion player is his nephew, but there is no downside to this nepotism.
