It Sounded Better In My Head: Keeping pace with Los Amigos ASG

Often I hear there is nothing to do in Victoria - I disagree.
Simply check the Victoria Advocate to see the many events, shows or fundraisers in the area offering some of the best entertainment available.
Last weekend alone, the city offered events like, Wild about Wine' benefiting the Texas Zoo and polo at the McFaddin Ranch.
And Saturday night, Los Amigos ASG played live on stage at Two Step nightclub.
Los Amigos ASG is a group out of Cuero.
This fast-growing Tejano band is full of energy and very popular on the young Tejano scene.
The band loves its fans, and its fans love and follow them all over the Crossroads.
It specializes in cumbias and salsa, with a fast-pace, nonstop dancing performance.
All of Los Amigos' members are humble and charming.
They happily sign autographs or take pictures with their fans.
Lead singer Lito Padua commented Friday that the night and the crowd were awesome.
It was standing room only at Two Step, and everyone was dancing and having a great time.
What most touched him, Padua said, was that it was a mixed crowd - young and old - loving Los Amigos' music.
Los Amigos ASG is scheduled to be back in Victoria on May 3 for the Cinco de Mayo celebration at DeLeon Plaza. It will also be performing with another great band, Avizo, at the Mother's Day dance sponsored by The De Leon Club of Victoria at the Community Center on May 10.
I know I marked my calendar to attend both of these performances.
The next dance we will be attending at Club Westerner is Friday night, when Grammy winner Ruben Ramos and the Mexican Revolution is scheduled to perform.
It's a night guaranteed to be full of great entertainment, fun and lots of dancing.
Like I said before, to see what's happening in Victoria and surrounding counties, check our Victoria Advocate. And I hope you'll join us at an upcoming Tejano music concert.
