David Lee Garza, Acordeonista
The moment that members of the tejano band David Lee Garza y Los Musicales saw a poster by San Antonian John Dyer, they knew they had found the photographer for their next album. “We wanted more than just a face on a cover,” says bassist Richard Garza, “and his poster said everything.” Dyer set up the shot in a ballroom and had the band’s accordionist take the floor. “They’re family, so it took some doing to convince David to do a solo shot,” says Dyer. Released in June and titled 1392, the band’s thirteenth album may be its luckiest–the first to go gold.
