Concert: Ricky Naranjo and the Gamblers

Many of the bands that played at the Tejano Conjunto Festival are made up of musicians who have long lineage in the conjunto tradition. Nowhere is that more clear than with Ricky Naranjo y los Gamblers. Ricky Naranjo is the son of legendary Tejano musician Rubén Naranjo. Today, he’s the drummer of his own band, and his nephew, also named Rubén, like his grandfather, is the lead singer and accordionist and saxophonist with his uncle’s band. Some fans swear he sounds just like his grandpa.
