Enjoy music while you savor Laredo’s grub with the freshness from Cumbia group The B-OK who are back with their new single 'Quiero Que Sepas'.

They are known as La Frescura de la Cumbia (The Freshness of the Cumbia), since their style of cumbia-pop conquered a market niche that nobody has occupied at the moment. They have four full-length albums: Así es la vida, Sólo para ti, Son de Boyz y Al Fin. Y un 3 EP: Te Acordarás y Tu Y Yo, Solo Aquí.

With the previous singles "Te Acordaras," "Tu Y Yo," and "Solo Aquí," they managed to position themselves in the Top 100 of most popular songs in Billboard Magazine. These singles also opened all kinds of doors, from live performances at clubs to dance venues.

The B-OK is headed by Eliovardo Gracia (Papa) and his brothers Ozzie and Hector Gracia from Durango. They are now settled in Fort Worth, Texas where they established a recording studio and produce for other groups and artists.  Other members include Javier Díaz, Eric Pérez, David Ambrosio and Edward Terrazas.

They have seven years of professional musical experience. The group was previously managed by Martin Fabian from GNG and Alma Munoz from Total Music Ent. At the moment they are Independent.

Performing in the Star Bar is rising country star Stephanie Quayle, who just had the privilege to sing for five former U.S. presidents as part of the hurricane relief concert “Deep From The Heart: One America Appeal” in our very own state of Texas. Quayle has been receiving a good deal of buzz on her rise to stardom from Billboard to Rolling Stone.

Every year 2,000 locals and tourists sample Laredo’s best in culinary. As part of the Washington’s Birthday Celebration, Taste of Laredo is one of the most anticipated and appetizing events in the month long fiesta. Mark your calendars for Thursday, February 8, 2018!

Admission is $25 for adults and free for children 12 years and under. Tickets are available at the LEA Box Office, Ticketmaster.com, or charge by phone at-1-800-745-3000.

Sponsors include Big Buck Country 98.1, Z93 Ziempre, Imagen Dental and the Outlet Shoppes at Laredo.
