In the middle of their set on Saturday May 19th at the 2018 Tejano-Conjunto Festival in San Antonio, Ricky Naranjo y Los Gamblers were awarded with a gold record “to commemorate certified gold sales of more than 500,000 copies of the Latin World Records world wide release of Lo Mas Caliente,” released in 2017. KEDA’s Nelda Saenz introduced Julie Rodriguez of Latin World Records, who presented the award along with Frank Fierro of The band smiled, the crowd of thousands cheered. Photos were taken. Rodriguez posted her own photos all over Facebook, receiving congratulatory comments and likes.

Thanks to these Business Resources

Last year, we began the tradition of providing access to business resources to the artists performing at the Rancho Alegre Conjunto Festival. This year, we were very fortunate to welcome back TuneCore and Texas Accountants and Lawyers for the Arts, and welcomed the Health Alliance for Austin Musicians and Capital Area Signs for the first time. 

All of these folks brought information and guidance with them and specialize in helping independent artists in particular. We appreciate their support and encourage everyone to reach out and support them in return.
