Arts and Culture
Alice has long been recognized as the "Birthplace of Tejano Music" - dating back to the mid-1940s - when Armando Marroquin - Sr. - of Alice and partner Paco Betancourt of San Benito launched what was to be the first home-based recording company to record Tejano artists exclusively. Ideal Records - which was based in Alice - under the direction of Marroquin became the perfect vehicle for Tejano groups and artists to get their music to the public. Marroquin - who also owned and operated a jukebox company - ensured that Ideal recordings would be distributed throughout South Texas. The songs recorded - which were contributed by Tejano and Mexican composers - became very popular through jukeboxes placed in restaurants - cantinas - or other establishments that would have them - and the then-scarce Spanish-language radio programs. In addition to Ideal - Alice was the home of Freddie Records and Hacienda Records - which were dominant players in Tejano music in the 1970s and 1980s.Alice is the birthplace of two Nobel Prize winners. Robert F. Curl Jr. was honored with a Nobel Prize in chemistry in 1996 - and James P. Allison won a Nobel for his work in medicine in 2018.
