To a lot of young bands, the music world seems like a great opportunity for fame and fortune. However, The Black Market Club looks at it with a more humble perspective. Going five years strong, this indie rock band has found a way to mesh their passion for music into their lives. Bassist Adam Herzig says that the band “plays shows because it’s fun to play, not for the money. It’s just entertaining to entertain. So when I don’t even have money as an aspect, I get excited for gigs. It keeps it organic for me.”

They call themselves the “Black Tie Cacti”, and they’re the nine winners of the Cactus Pear Music Festival’s Young Artists Program for 2017. The musicians range  from 16 to 18 years old, auditioned for the part back in April of this year and were chosen to perform an hour and a half program for this year’s festival. Not only is this a great opportunity for the people of San Antonio to enjoy young talent, but it is also a stepping stone for these young musicians into a lifetime of music.
