Temple: Little Joe y La Familia Museum

Fans of Tejano music or Texas music history should visit this museum operated by "la familia." Vintage photos document its subject’s life, family, and decades-long career. Born Jose Maria DeLeon Hernandez, Little Joe (and predecessor Beto Villa) turned traditional conjunto music on its head. His music paid homage to his Mexican heritage while embracing Americanized styles, from blues and jazz to country.
