Doug Sahm, Freddy Fender, Augie Meyers, Flaco Jimenez, Louie Ortega, Speedy Sparks, Ernie Durawa, Oscar Tellez, and Derek O"Brien a.k.a. TEXAS TORNADOS

Texas Tornados is a Tejano band. Its music is a fusion of rock, country and various Mexican styles. 

The initial combination of musicians of the Texas Tornados happened almost by chance at a concert performance of mutual acquaintances. After Freddy Fender, Flaco Jiménez, Augie Meyers, and Doug Sahm performed in front of a San Francisco audience, they all knew the genuine bond they felt in their music could probably be taken to another level. After they initially performed as the Tex-Mex Revue, they took the title Texas Tornados, after Sahm's song and album of that name.

Another account of the group's birth says they formed when record company executives looking to cash in on regional music sales approached Sahm and Meyers around 1990, and they brought in longtime friends and collaborators Fender and Jiménez. Sahm had released albums under the name Texas Tornados as early as the 1970s, some featuring Fender or Meyers. Jiménez and Meyers played on Sahm's Atlantic Records debut in 1971. As Fender once said "You've heard of New Kids on the Block?, we're the Old Guys in the Street".
