It’s an offer Tejano fans can’t refuse — come together.
La Mafia celebrates its 30th anniversary with a star-studded concert at the Alamodome on Sunday. Showtime is 7:30 p.m.
Produced in conjunction with Univision Radio San Antonio, “La Mafia — A Musical Legacy: 30th Anniversary” will included guest appearances by Little Joe Hernandez, Ruben Ramos, Los Palominos, Elida Reyna, Shelly Lares, Bobby Pulido, Frankie J, Cristian Castro and others singing with the band.
One of the surprises is rumored to be the return of superstar Emilio Navaira. His son, Emilio Navaira IV, didn’t rule out the possibility.
And La Mafia cofounder, keyboardist/accordionist/producer Armando Lichtenberger, left the door open, too. In other words, no denials were forthcoming.
But with or without Emilio, this two-hour concert is going to be a blast and a show of solidarity, said Lichtenberger. It’ll be a sentimental journal for the genre-bending, multi-Grammy winners.
“It goes by so fast,” Lichtenberger said. “I’ve pretty much been doing it all my life.”
About Sunday’s “Come Together”-style show: “We wanted to bring the spotlight back to San Antonio, to Texas and to Tejano. We want to put Little Joe right next to Cristian Castro, Los Palominos right next to Frankie J because it shows the unity (of Tejano). Because of corporate radio, there are divisions. But this shows our solidarity. I guarantee you when Little Joe hits the stage that stadium is going to go nuts because Little Joe is a god. This is where we’ve been all along.”
