Garza, Duelo, Elizabeth among KWEX-TV/Premios winners

NEW PHOTOS

Tejano/norteno groups Duelo, David Lee Garza and Tex-Mex singers Javier Galvan and Elizabeth were among the early winners Thursday night at the 2009 Premios a La Musica.

The awards, which were held at the Majestic Theater, put the spotlight on

the top talent in various genres.
New singer Elizabeth took the stage to accept the award for Mejor revelacion del ano.
 
"Primeramente ls dos la gracias a dios," she said, almost breaking into tears of joy. "Gracias a San Antonio y mis amigos de Monterrey and El Districto federal.Gracias po su apoyo.,"
Fama singer and solo artiist Galvan grabbed Mejor Grupo Religioso.
"First I want to thank to God for all the talent and all we have lived, even though we are not perfect, we work hard," he said. "So thank you, God bless you."
The Mejor Conjunto Progresivo award went to David Lee Garza.
"I want to thank everybody that voted and also Univision on behalf of Los Musicalas. It's been a lot of years on the road, thank and god bless you."
Overall, great music and solid performances marked the 2009 Premios a la Musica held Thursday night at the Majestic Theater. Performing artists included Tony Melendez and his Conjunto Primavera, Las Voces de Tejas, Ha-Ash, Tommy Torres, Flaco Jimenez, Ruben Ramos and David Lee Garza.
San Antonio homeboy Emilio was up for best male vocalist but he lost out to Michael Salgado. Latin Bredd grabbed mejor variedad Latino.
Upsides were a relatively crisp and smooth running show, some exciting performances, and a nice variety of talent on stage, from norteno and mariachi top pop and Tex-Mex.

A lovely tribute to the late Rocio Durcal was turned in by Las Voces de Tejas, that include her hits such as "Como tu Mujer." A couple of years have passed but the magic and the allure  of Durcal has not been forgotten. There has not yet been a singer, in my opinion, in any genre, that has matched her beauty, vocal power, and majestic elegance. That is no insult to the very best singers we have had through the years, including Ana Gabriel,  Lourdes Ochoa, Nydia Rojas, and Linda Ronstadt.   
Early highlights include a performance by an exuberant Mariachi Sangre Mexicana.
Fox Tech High School won the best High school mariachi while Henry Brun grabbed best jazz Latino. San Antonio's long running Mariachi Campanas took best mariachi.
"Gracias a todos, y un saludo a todos los mariachi hoy en la noche," said Campanas director Juan Ortiz.
San Antonio homeboy Emilio was up for best male vocalist but he lost out to Michael Salgado. Latin Bredd grabbed mejor variedad Latino.
Upsides were a relatively crisp and smooth running show, some exciting performances, and a nice variety of talent on stage, from norteno and mariachi top pop and Tex-Mex.
As usual, there were a few expected downsides included uneven audio levels (at least from the back of the theater), a slightly late starting show, originally scheduled to start at 7 p.m. Unlike last year there were, incredibly, no programs. 
But these are nothing that couldn't be fixed with more manpower and more rehearsal time.
Producer Cesar Medrano, KWEX-TV GM David Loving and a long list of staff and volunteers too many to mentioned should be saluted for another good show. 
In the end, fans should be appreciative that in the capital of Tejano music, there is an awards show that does not forget San Antonio's other rich musical heritage.
