Go Tejano Day feat. Duelo, La Original Banda El Limon, Mariachi Invitational Finalists RodeoHouston, Reliant Stadium March 11, 2012

The rain didn't dampen the mariachi spirit last night. Check out our slideshow from Go Tejano Day.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Tejano is dead. But that doesn't mean we can't all have a good time. That was the mentality of the 74,588 who purchased tickets to Sunday night's show at Reliant Stadium. Yes folks, that is the all-time attendance record at RodeoHouston.

Duelo was the headliner of the night, performing for the third time at the annual Go Tejano Day. The band from the border town of Roma, Texas specializes in the popular conjunto style of Norteño music, incorporating the traditional 12-string guitar called the bajo sexto, as well as a virtuoso accordion.
