The Tejano sounds will continue at 5:30 pm with AB Quintanilla y los Kumbia King All Starz. As the older brother of Selena, AB Quintanilla has Latin music in his blood. Quintanilla’s musical background includes co-writing songs and performing with his sister in their band Los Dinos, as well as founding several bands of his own. His talent has garnered countless honors over the years, including multiple Grammy nominations, an American Music Award nomination, a Latin Grammy Award and a Billboard Latin Music Award.
