The Tejano Market Research Project has finally released its first report! The Industry Survey was conducted to find out the current sentiment and thoughts about the industry by actual industry insiders. We will abstain from giving our opinion on the reports findings due to our closeness to the actual report but we hope that this will benefit the industry.

Ricky Valenz has been busy, in the studio, on the road, even making it to the Tejano Music National Convention (TNMC 2015) in Vegas, even dropping a new video for his new single “Esperandote.”
“Esperandote” is an outpouring of love, for a woman and his determination to wait for her until the end of time. The song was produced by International Super Producer AB Quintanilla III and Multi-Grammy Award winning Gilbert Velasquez. Quintanilla also co-wrote the song with Ricky Vela.
Staring Ricky Valenz, Mary E Martinez, Ron “Ice” Hicks, Ruben Rae, Sam Perez, A.B. Quintanilla, and Gilbert Velasquez.
The single will be from the new project that is set to release later this year on Star Boy Entertainment and VMB Music Group.
Rio Jordan has recently been in the studio with Multi-GRAMMY Award winning producer and engineer Gilbert Velasquez. If you had a chance to check out the VMB – Play It Loud: Tejano Showcase 2015, the Jordan bros. had a song on there, as they are apart of the new venture between Gilbert Velasquez, Jorge Marroquin and Vicente “Chente” Barrera. The song that was released on the compilation was titled, “Volver, Volver,” an uptempo, funky cumbia, that has their own flavor on the classic song. You can tell the family business of the accordion sound has been handed down from their father, the legendary Esteban Jordan, as well as passion for music.

Chris Perez will be doing a book signing at the Tejano National Music Convention (TMNC) in Las Vegas on Saturday, August 1st. The signing will be taking place at the Tejano Experience Fan Fare and Expo.
To Selena With Love
Chris’s powerful story gives a rare glimpse into Selena’s sincerity and vulnerability when falling in love, strength and conviction when fighting for that love, and absolute resilience when finding peace and normalcy with her family’s acceptance of the only man she called her husband. While showcasing a side of Selena that has never been disclosed before and clarifying certain misconceptions about her life and death, To Selena, with Love is an everlasting love story that immortalizes the heart and soul of an extraordinary, unforgettable, and irreplaceable icon.
One of the most compelling and adored superstars in Latin music history, Selena was nothing short of a phenomenon who shared all of herself with her millions of devoted fans. Her tragic murder, at the young age of twenty-three, stripped the world of her talent and boundless potential, her tightly knit family of their beloved angel, and her husband, Chris Perez, of the greatest love he had ever known.
For over a decade, Chris held on to the only personal thing he had left from his late wife: the touching and sometimes painful memories of their very private bond. Now, for the first time, Chris opens up about their unbreakable friendship, forbidden relationship, and blossoming marriage, which were cut short by Selena’s unforgivable death.
As an added bonus to his new project, “Mucho Mas Que Amor” dropping next Tuesday (July 14th), VMB Music Group and Ram Herrera have released a video to accompany the lead single, “Dime Se Estoy Loco.” “Mucho Mas Que Amor” is the debut project from the tejano veteran on the VMV Music Group label. The project was arranged by Multi-GRAMMY Award winning Gilbert Velasquez, with Chente Barrera playing drums, singing background vocals and having written a couple of the songs featured.
VMB Music Group has been making a lot of noise with their releases from: Jaime y Los Chamacos “Born To Be Bad”, The Hometown Boys “El Siguiente Capitulo”, La Tropa F “No Regrets”, Los Dos Gilbertos “Conjunto Music At It’s Very Best” and the VMB Artist Compilation “Play It Loud”, which was released at this years TTMA Fan Fair.
