Accordion Babes will demand your complete surrender at La Tuna
Published: June 15, 2011
Why did you two decide to tour together?
’Cause we make a good team. We have toured the West Coast together a few times in the last couple years and realized that we had a good thing going. Also, we’re both highly motivated, bodacious, and ready to go!
Are you at all familiar with the Texas conjunto tradition? Have you performed in San Antonio before?
Yes, one of our Babes, Tara Linda, who is from San Antonio, plays the Tex-Mex style of accordion. She has worked with Flaco Jiménez, and Renée hung out with him backstage at [California’s] Cotati Accordion Festival. This will be our first time in San Antonio, and we’re very excited about that. •
