Joe King Carrasco

Joe King Carrasco performed at the Executive Surf Club the other night, right here in Corpus Christi. My adorable wife and I were driving by and saw his name on the marquee. Why not? It’s been at least 20 years since seeing the guy.
Disappointing was the fact that there were probably all of 20 people in there to catch the show. What was not disappointing was the act itself. Gone are the crazed stage antics as well as the keyboard, but the music was as solid as ever.
It was a simple, 3 piece band consisting of electric guitar, bass and drums and they played as though there were hundreds of fans rather than lamely just getting through the night. Gotta respect that.
I have to admit that I did not recognize a single song the band played, but they were all Tejano rockin’ good.
