Los Texmaniacs will perform at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center on Friday, Oct. 23, beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Los Texmaniacs is a conjunto band created by Max Baca in 1997. Baca wanted to create a band that incorporated elements from genres such as rock and roll and jazz while still honoring the roots of conjunto Tejano.

Conjunto Tejano was born in south Texas at the end of the 19th century after German settlers introduced the button accordion. The bajo sexto, a 12-string guitar-like instrument, has come to accompany the button accordion and is integral to the conjunto sound.

In 2010, Los Texmaniacs won a “Tejano Album of the Year Grammy Award” for Borders y Bailes.

Members of Los Texmaniacs have changed over the years, but current members include Baca on bajo sexto, Josh Baca on accordion, Noel Hernandez on electric bass and Daniel Martínez on the drums.

Combine a hefty helping of Tex Mex conjunto, simmer with several parts Texas rock, add a daring dash of well-cured blues, and R&B riffs, and you’ve cooked up the tasty Texmaniacs groove.

Tickets ar $45 (plus applicable fees); available online.
