Los Legends featuring Flaco Jimenez, Ruben Ramos, Rick Trevino y Amigos
Old Settler’s is pleased to bring you three legends of Texas music – all Grammy winners – all wildly successful and revered around the world. Seven-time Grammy Winner and accordion master Flaco Jimenez has worked with Doug Sahm, Dr. John, David Lindley, Peter Rowan, Ry Cooder, and Bob Dylan. Flaco was a member of Peter Rowan’s Free Mexican Airforce, as well as the Tejano fusion group the Texas Tornados with Augie Meyers, Doug Sahm and Freddy Fender. In 1998, Flaco teamed up with Ruben Ramos, Rick Trevino, David Hildago and Cesar Rosas (of Los Lobos), Joe Ely, and Freddy Fender to form Los Super Seven. Los Super Seven’s self-titled CD earned them a Grammy award for Best Mexican American Performance. In 2015, Flaco was awarded a Grammy for Lifetime Achievement.
Ruben Ramos, also known as El Gato Negro, began his music career in the late 1960s. In 1998, Ruben was inducted into the Tejano Music Awards Hall of Fame and later won Best Male Vocalist. His band, The Mexican Revolution, also won album of the year in 2008. In January 2009 at the 51st annual Grammy awards, Ramos & the Revolution won the 2009 Grammy for “Best Tejano album of the Year.”
Rick Trevino was born on the Buffalo Bayou in Houston, a third generation Mexican-American who just wanted to sing straight ahead Texas country music. At the insistence of Columbia Nashville, his first album Dos Mundos was almost entirely a Spanish country album that went gold. His first English album in 1994 also went gold. He followed up with a number of successful albums, three albums with Los Super Seven, and his about to release his newest cd.
