Baca is a noted virtuoso on the bajo sexto (“sixth bass”), a twelve-string instrument like a guitar. He and the band won a 2009 Grammy Award for their “Borders y Bailes” CD. The band’s musical style has been described as a mixture of Tex-Mex conjunto and Texas rock, seasoned with blues and R&B. Max has appeared on the David Letterman, Conan O’Brien and Jay Leno late night shows, as well as in several PBS documentaries and “Austin City Limits.”
 
The Texas Music Coffeehouse series free and open to the public. It is co-sponsored by Schreiner’s Center for Innovative Studies and the Texas Heritage Music Foundation. For information about Schreiner and other CIL programs, visit the Web at www.schreiner.edu.
