Joe King Carrasco & The Crowns

Real Name:
Joe King Carrasco
Profile:
In 1980 Joe King Carrasco formed the Crowns featuring Vox organ-driven Tex-mex pop and soon the band was playing chic New York venues and generating lines around the block. Signing with England's legendary Stiff Records, he toured extensively consistently delivering high energy performances. His song Party Weekend is still known as the quintessential party anthem and made him a household name to MTV viewers across the world. In 2009 he released "Rancho No Tengo"- a movie and soundtrack that he wrote and directed. He sang "Adios Mexico" with members of the Texas Tornados, in a 2010 tribute to one of his early heroes the late Doug Sahm.
