[Vaca] hola Emilio, wb Tejano01
[Javier] thanks for joining me!
[David] Javier have yall ever been to baytown?
[Javier] it's been a while
[Vaca] When you coming to San Antonio?
[Javier] sometime in dec.
[David] u have been here?
[David] I live in baytown
[Javier] thats pretty close to us!
[David] yes i know :)
[David] When do u plan to come back to baytown?
[Javier] i dont have any dates yet but i hope soon
[Vaca] Javier, give us a little biography, background....married, children? that sort of stuff
[Javier] The band started in 89
[Javier] we have 8 albums out.
[Javier] The latest being Sin Duda (Which I hope you have!)
[David] Maybe I could see yall when yall come is there anyway I could get the info on when yall will come?
[WebJefe] great CD!
[Javier] thank you. I like it to ha!ha!
[Tejano01] was gonna get it, but they were out, guess that is good for you
[Vaca] You married? Children?
[Javier] Yes I am married with two children.
[WebJefe] I also like "Lagrimas de Alegria"
[Javier] Lagrimas De Alegria has done very well for us thanks to yall!!
[Vaca] How do you handle being on the road and being a father husband? How does the family cope?
[Javier] It is hard but we cope with it very well.
[Tejano] Greetings from McAllen, Texas! Will you be at borderFest this year??
[Javier] Tejano: We will be in San benito this Sunday.
[David] Javier U have have a offical webpage?
[David] Javier Fama have a offical webpage?
[David] a does is supposed to be in there sorry
[Javier] David: not yet but we are working on it.
[WebJefe] When do you plan to be in Dallas again?
[Javier] WebJefe: We are going to do some promotions in Nov.in the Dallas area.
[Tejano01] Javier, I find that the music tastes of the Valley are different than those over here in the Houston Area, do you see that in the crowds you attract in the valley, sizewise?
[Javier] not really .
[Vaca] how often do you take a break? Do you work year round?
[David] Javier: What do u think of the Houston Radio station?
[Javier] David: I think that there system of picking out music stinks!!! and very unfair.
[Tejano01] I find that the station in houston only plays like three bands(Salgado, Pulido, and Limite),
[David] Have u expressed this to them?
[David] I found they play your song Amor Amor amor alot
[Javier] Your are right and we should get together and let them know!!
[Tejano01] I wish they had an email, then we could make ourselves known
[David] I find alot of people who have been on laonda have said that EXE: Shelly Lares
[David] and it is is true
[Javier] Yes I have told them publically and they didn't like it to much.
[Tejano01] has the band grown since 89, and has there been a lot of personnel turnover
[Vaca] Javier, you feel if the market was more fair it would boost your career.?
[Vaca] Alot of doors would open up?
[David] Vaca: I think it would. It is true the station here are unfair
[Vaca] If so, which ones?
[Javier] we have grown music wise and we have change guitar player and drummer.
[Javier] yes it would open alot of doors because airplay is very important.
[David] they play, Selena, bobby, LOTS OF Grupo Limite, more Limite like all day. They wear them out. I think they should get there act together
[Tejano01] in the beginning, your music was more, of a keyboard based music, what prompted you to include accordian in your music?
[Selena] Javier, any plans on coming up to Washington State?
[Javier] don't have a date for Washington yet.
[Javier] we try to play what people ask for or what's in.
[David] Javier how can i get a autograph of yall's?
[Tejano] Javier: 1) Some Dj's I have talked to say by calling the music Tejano that is is to limiting. That it limits the exposure. What do you think?
[Javier] I think it does .
[David] Javier how can i get a autograph of yall's?
[Javier] David I will put our fan club address and send it there and I will sign it there.
[Vaca] Javier, if you were able to do anything different in your career, you could go back and change something, what would it be?
[Javier] I would not change anything.
[WebJefe] Fama's fan club address in on their webpage on La Onda Network.
[David] send what there? You have pics to sign?
[Tejano01] What label are you with right now? Sony, and are you still with Voltage?
[Javier] yes Iam with Sony and no no no I am not with Voltage!
[Tejano01] you seem emphatic on you no, there a reason behind this?
[David] Sony is a very good Label they have many Great stars and I hope they can help Tejano much as much as they have for R&b and pop.
[Tejano] Javier, what will it take then, for the Tejano music to expand, or to grow in popularity nationwide and even down south? besides a name change
[Javier] to stick to simple and commercial music I think is the key to get in to all markets
[Vaca] What other Tejano stars are on the Sony label?
[Vaca] Who else David?
[David] I dont know
[Javier] Ram,Jay perez, ahh Iforget.
[Selena] Eddie's one too
[David] Javier: Have u worked with Mr.Tommy Mottola?
[David] so alot of great Tejano people are on Sony
[Tejano01] How much support does Sony give you, and Tejano Music as a whole?
[Javier] sony gives us 100% and then some and i dont think that sony only considers us tejano anymore
[Tejano01] which leads up to another question
[David] Javier: Happy belated birthday
[Javier] thank you i just turned 16(ha!ha!)
[Vaca] ~Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to youuu~
[Javier] thank you
[Tejano] In talking to others in the Tejano music industry, many say that the death of Selena did much to bring exposure to Tejano Music, but, that now Tejano music is in a slump. Where do you see Tejano Music in 5 years?
[Tejano01] Your music has evolved since the beginning, becoming, at least in my view, more international. is that your goal, to be internationally known, like say La Mafia?
[Javier] i just want to be able to go all over the world and be accepted
[David] Well Latin mexican music has spread all over the world and i hope Tejano does to ;)
[Javier] i dont know about tejano music but i see fama working hard
[Vaca] Do you play anywhere where you don't feel comfortable or accepted?
[Javier] vaca; no because i know that some markets are harder than others.
[David] Javier: what part of Houston do u live in?
[Javier] i live in west Houston.
[Tejano01] Conjunto bands, such as Salgado and Intocable seem to be very popular, have your record sales shown this, or have your sales been steady
[Javier] our sales are very very good with this new album and thank God .
[David] How much does it cost for yall to do a gig?
[Vaca] So how does one meet and chat in person with Javier of FAMA?
[Javier] go to a concert.
[farmer] any plans to tour near kansas anytime soon? :)
[Javier] Farmer; not any time soon.
[David] How much does it cost for yall to do a gig?
[Tejano01] do you expect to hit platinum with this one
[Javier] tejano; hopefully very soon!
[farmer] why david, you want them to play your birthday party? :)
[Javier] alot of headaches, reganadas and money.
[David] alot more money than i have LOL
[Javier] did i forget to mention my new album sin duda(ha!ha!)
[Javier] i wrote all the songs played all the instr. ...........im lying ha! ha!
[David] When is the last time yall played a 15?
[farmer] gracias web :)
[Tejano01] There are bands(who shall remain nameless,we know who they are) who have a reputation for not showing up to concerts, have you ever had to cancel out, and then later heard that the promoter blamed you, even when it was not your fault?
[Javier] we are not known to cancel but I gotten sick twice.
