This Saturday June 20th, we mosey on down to San Antonio to celebrate the release of Royal Jesters: English Oldies. There will be era/aura appropriate DJ sets by our own Rob Sevier, Ruben Molina (Southern Soul Spinners, Los Angeles), and Rae D. Cabello (who made the snazzy flyer below). We feel fortunate to be able to mark this occasion with the fine people of San Antonio before we take the music of the Royal Jesters to the global masses next Tuesday.

Twenty-eight homespun stunners from the Alamo City’s scrappiest souleros. The Royal Jesters were the kings of San Antonio’s cross-cultural teen scene in the 1960s, soundtracking lovelorn slow dances with their heart-sick harmonies. For the first time, English Oldies gathers the best early doo-wop, R&B, and blazing Latin rock and soul from these Tex-Mex masterminds—a simmering melting pot of diverse regional flavors, best served hot.
