Tejano-Conjunto Explosion was awesome

 

Over 1,000 Tejano fans were entertained on May 27, 2007 at the 4th Annual Midwest Tejano-Conjunto Explosion, presented by M & M Productions at Centennial Terrace in Sylvania, Ohio.

 

Sylvania is a stone-throw from Toledo, when one travels north towards Michigan.

M & M stands for Mark (García) and Mike (Avina)—or is it Mike and Mark? Well, it really doesn’t matter, but what does matter is that Mark and Mike have hosted several events per year for several years now, to promote Tejano and Conjunto music throughout the Midwest.

 

They hooked up with BNetRadio (www.BNetRadio.com) by inviting Bob Olivo to return to his native Ohio. Olivo was raised in Ottawa, Ohio and was involved in Tejano music since youth, being part of Eddie Olivo y Los Impactos and Bobby Romero’s band (Leipsic); he was a DJ at BGSU 88.1FM.

 

Olivo moved to Houston in 1989 to be the Latin music buyer for Southwest Wholesale. Olivo also writes music—for Tejano greats such as David Lee Garza y Los Musicales, David Marez, and Fama.

 

Olivo has been Webcasting with BnetRadio for four years. BnetRadio was feature in La Prensa’s story BNetTejano Webcasting: Changing the future of radio en el mundo at: www.laprensatoledo.com/Stories/2005/Dec%2014%202005/
BNetTejano%20Webcasting.htm.

 

Olivo and his co-DJ Lady Di (95.3FM, WQTE, Adrian MI) introduced the seven talented bands, playing nonstop from 4:30PM till Midnight. The bands included: Bobby DeLeón and Mas Caliente de Saginaw, La Corporación de Lansing, Grupo Sensación de Mt. Clemens, Los Cuatro Vientos de Jimmy Bejarano de Fremont, Los Carnales (Saginaw), Futuro Band de Chicago, and Grupo Dezeo de Toledo.

 

Olivo was also Webcasting the gig on BNetRadio.

 

To add spice to the Memorial Day weekend, M&M Productions also had a pre-party and after-party at Club Prestige, located in south Toledo. At the pre-party on Saturday, May 26, 2007, Olivo also broadcast live from the club, where Sensación was playing.

 

All in all, an awesome weekend. Thanks to Mike and Mark, Bob Olivo, and Lady Di.
