Sir Douglas and The Texas Tornadoes

She’s About a Mover!

Texas Tornados is a Tejano band. Its music is a fusion of rock, country and various Mexican styles. Doug Sahm and Augie Meyers were both members of the 1960s pop-rock band the Sir Douglas Quintet, with hits such as “She’s About a Mover” and “Mendocino” to their credit. Meyers’ signature sound on the Vox organ was a prominent feature of the band’s sound. Sahm, Meyers and Jiménez are from the San Antonio area.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 titleTexas Tornados, after Sahm’s song and album of that name. Read More Wiki…
