Max Baca & Los TexManiacs

Location: UH Hilo Performing Arts Center

Max Baca and his Grammy award winning band, los TexManiacs, brings a combination of country, rock and conjunto to Hilo. With lyrics that are down to earth and often funny, conjunto ranges from fast-paced polkas (cancion-polca) to slower, Mexican-style country songs (cancion-ranchera).

Los TexManiacs recently were featured on the legendary music television program, Austin City Limits where they performed with Country music legend Dwight Yoakam and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, to induct Flaco Jiménez into The Austin City Limits Hall of Fame.

They combine Tex-Mex conjunto, Texas rock, blues, and R&B riffs, to create the Los TexManiacs groove. It is said this is, “Hip music everyone can relate to”.

Los TexManiacs feed the masses, with only the best in musical fare. Founded by Max Baca (bajo sexton, vocals), the TexManiacs are a product of his wide-ranging experience touring and recording with groups from his father’s family conjunto, Flaco Jiménez and the original Texas Tornados, Los Super Seven and the Rolling Stones. Max is a legend on the bajo sexto, a twelve-string guitar like instrument, which customarily provides rhythm accompaniment for the button accordion, thus creating the core of the conjunto sound. Max uses the bajo sexto to push the TexManiacs sound to another level of vibrancy altogether. He has displayed a musical virtuosity and blistering guitar riff solo style that is now being emulated by young bajo players internationally. Max is credited for turning a traditional folk/roots/conjunto instrument hip again, attracting young, new audiences while maintaining his roots in traditional Tex-Mex.
