I haven't trimmed down my own great Ruben Vela footage since some fancy new software is on the near horizon for the Wayne's film and I figured it can wait, but of course someone else has loaded some onto youtube already. Ruebn Vela is playing this on the night of his 72nd birthday.
and here is some great footage from 1988 when Vela and band were definitely sounding great. Not bad to sound the same (in the best way) for 21 years. My sources tell me that in this footage its Ruben Garza on bajo, now of Los Dos Gilbertos, which is probably the other greatest older traditional conjunto out there nowadays.
Worth noting the Ruben Vela shirts the band is wearing: "PURO PARTY"
