Over the years, they have played at numerous events- festivals, jamaicas, cantinas, clubs, flea markets and dancehalls all across Texas and around the United States. They've worked in the small cantinas that once filled Austin's East Sixth Street; places like Happy Day's Lounge #2, La Bola de Oro, La Esquina Lounge and also venues on the south side- Jovita's, Little Mexico Restaurant, The New Chaparral, Antone's and The Continental Club. The group has had the honor of performing at the Tejano-Conjunto Festival en San Antonio (three times), Accordion Kings in Houston, The Narciso Martinez Conjunto Festival en San Benito (twice), The Johnstown Folk Festival in Johnstown, PA, The San Jose Flea Market (CA) and El Dia De Los Muertos celebrations in Birmingham, Alabama- five times alongside Susan Torres and Flaco Jimenez.
