Video of the Week: “Mendocino,” the Texas Tornados

From 1992, a classic: “Mendocino,” the oldie from the Sir Douglas Quintet, performed by the Texas Tornados in Gruene Dance Hall in Gruene, Texas.  The Tornados included ex-Sir Douglas Quintet keyboardist Augie Meyers, Tejano accordion player Flaco Jimenez, the late, great Freddy Fender and the equally great (and late) Sir Douglas Sahm.

The Texas Tornados are gonna play a free show in Houston, Sept. 23 at the Discovery Green downtown park.   They then go to San Antonio to headline Lone Star beer’s “Bash at the Brewery” on Sept. 25.
