In a 2012 interview with him, Escovedo told the Advocate that he visited our neighborhood when he was a kid. His uncle, Toby Rentería had a tailor shop here.

 “So all my cousins grew up there with the Vaughans … I was doing this show called “Mountain Stage.” And we were talking about this to the emcee [Oak Cliff native Larry Groce], and I started telling him about my family and that my uncle had a tailor shop in Oak Cliff. And he said, “Oh, your cousin is [golf pro Phil Rentería],” and he said, “Oh, we used to hang out together.”
