Reno Perez to Release “My Heart Cries No” in Laredo With Special Guest, Legendary Johnny Rodriguez
AUSTIN, Texas, May 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Recording Artist Reno Perez will release a much anticipated 4 song EP June 2 at Cosmo’s Bar and Grill in Laredo TX at 10:30 p.m. Reno will perform his new songs and there will be a special performance by his dear friend country legend Johnny Rodriguez. Tickets are $25 at the door.
Reno Perez is both a vocalist and guitarist who has charted three top five singles [US] on Tejano and Country Charts: Tejanita, Mil Anos, and a Spanish language version of Brown-Eyed Girl. A classically trained mariachi, this multi- talented musician routinely crosses all genres, transitioning from jazz to country to blues to latin and surprising combinations thereof. Deftly fusing blues and mariachi, or jazz and blues, or any synthesis you can think of, he blithely colors outside the lines.
Johnny Rodriguez, the first famous latin american country singer, will be in attendance to support Reno, his friend and musical collaborator. In the 1970s and 1980s, he was one of country music’s most successful male artists, recording a string of hit songs, such as “Ridin’ My Thumb to Mexico, You Always Come Back to Hurting Me,” “Desperado,” “Down on the Rio Grande,” and “Foolin’.” He has recorded twenty six No. 1 country hits in his career, and eleven number one hits in a row in 1971.
Reno has shared the stage with country great Johnny Rodriguez as musical director/lead guitarist, and others like Comedian Alex Reymundo, Comedian Ron White, songstress Margo Rey, David Allen Coe, Flaco Jiminez, Merle Haggard, and Ricky Martin. He has opened for many national acts.
Reno has musician DNA stretching back across generations. He has enjoyed radio play in Europe, with Llorando Por Ti (written by his Tejano Music Hall of Fame father Juan Perez and originally released in the 60s) on the Netherlands charts. Reno is resident composer/artist development with Austin Music Film and Media, AMFM Studios LLC
