I tried to convince my family and friends in the Great State of Wisconsin to go see Ruben Vela play this past weekend in Racine, but it does not seem like anybody realized the import of his appearance there.
Sr. Vela took the trouble to stop by Waukegan, Illinois, which is the Lake County seat (the county of my birth) in northern Illinois and now a heavily Mexicanized area. This was not remotely the case when I was young but has been increasingly the case in the past twenty years. Most of the greats who tour end up playing clubs in Waukegan, incredibly enough.
Here is a youtube video of him sitting in with some locals (embedding was disabled but here is the url.) Relatively rare to hear a conjunto great sans incredible volume.
