The sought after Latin Rock band Vallejo will perform at the last Party on the Pier of the season on Sat., October 19. Mitchell Historic Properties and the restaurants and attractions at Pier 21® present this free, family-friendly gathering, which takes place on the third Saturday of the month from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. through October and features live music and entertainment including performances by award winning Austin musicians.

 

The award-winning rock band of brothers has become one of the most popular bands to hail from Austin, Texas, known for their striking blend of infectious swaggering rock laced with Latin percussion and fiery performances.  In 2009, their critically acclaimed album, Thicker Than Water, was awarded “Best Rock Band” at the Texas Latin Music Awards. 

 

After over 15 years of being a band, Vallejo has toured extensively throughout the United States and Mexico sharing the stage with bands like Stone Temple Pilots, Fuel, 3 Doors Down, Juanes, Molotov, Black Crowes, The Foo Fighters, Matchbox 20, Shinedown, and Los Lobos.  The band has also had their songs featured in several TV shows such as HBO’s True Blood, ABC’s The Unusuals, WB’s Roswell, MTV’s Road Rules, and UPN’s America’s Next Top Model.

 

Vallejo will perform at Party on the Pier on Saturday, October 19 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Pier 21®, located at 21st Street and Harborside Drive in Galveston, TX.  The event is free and open to the public.  Visitors are encouraged to grab a meal and enjoy the show from the outdoor seating areas at any of the participating restaurants located on the pier.
