Donate to Alfredo De La Rosa’s Liver/Kidney Transplant Fund

Rick De La Rosa has established an online fundraising campaign to help pay for his dad’s liver and kidney transplant. Alfredo has been making great progress, but the follow-up appointments and continuing care cost a lot of money.

Any amount you can give is very much appreciated by Alfredo and the rest of the family. You can pay online with a credit card through Paypal, or if you like, call Rick at 361-455-4429 for more information.

Rancho Alegre makes it to Public Radio!

Earlier this year, we were approached by Delaney Hall of KUT Radio here in Austin. She was beginning work on a new collaborative project with Texas Music Matters called the Austin Music Map with the goal of documenting some interesting, though lesser-known, music venues in Austin. An interactive website, complete with extended interviews, video, and more photos, is scheduled to be launched very soon.

Rancho Alegre Interview - Conjunto Romo

As the traditional audience ages, everyone’s talking about how to get young people to listen to Conjunto and Tejano music. Kyle, Texas, has an answer with Conjunto Romo.

Meet Navor Romo…bassist, bandleader and vocalist. Together, he and his sons Cedrick (accordion/vocals), Noe (bajo sexto) and JJ (drums), are making their mark in Conjunto music. And, in the case of Noe and JJ, juggling high school at the same time.

We're back!

Greetings everyone!

We’re back and have restored our website, as you can tell. We’ve been thinking about the direction of Rancho Alegre over the past week and have reevaluated our strategy. Until Frank gets healthy, we won’t be promoting our own shows.

Instead, we will be concentrating on producing all of the interviews that we have conducted and currently have “in the can,” as well as upgrading our website and playlist.

Our phenomenal interview with Mingo Saldivar should be released soon. We want to make sure we get it just right.
