Performers

Mariachi Cobre – Playing at EPCOT Center at Disney World in Orlando, Florida since 1982; Mariachi Cobre continues impressing fans and wowing crowds from all over the world. With a diverse international audience, Cobre became known as “ambassadors to the music.” The group has worked with countless renowned artists including Linda Ronstadt, Julio Iglesias, Vicki Carr, Lucha Villa, Lola Beltran, Ana Gabriel, Guadalupe Pineda and Jose Luis Rodriguez.This dedication combined with international tour dates is the reason they are often called the band that “brought mariachi music to the masses.”

Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlán – Established in 1965 by José “Pépe” Martinez and his brother Fernando, the legendary Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlán is one of the most prolific mariachis of all time in terms of recorded output with over 500 original arrangements on over 100 long-playing records.  When Maestro Pépe left to join Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán in 1976, Fernando remained in charge of the group until his death in 1998. Named the “Best Mariachi in Jalisco”, most of the fourteen members of the Mariachi Nuevo Tecalitlán come from multi-generational mariachi family dynasties, second-generation Martinez family members and other virtuoso musicians from the mariachi circuit.

Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles – The group has the rare distinction of being not only an excellent band, but one that has made history. The group started in South El Monte, CA in 1994 after José Hernández, a board member of the non-profit Mariachi Heritage Society created Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles from the girls and women (early teens to mid-thirties) who were taking lessons at the Heritage Society, forming the first American all-female mariachi band. Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles’ profile has continuously increased since 1994. The group tours nationally, as well as throughout Mexico. They’ve released three albums, 1996’s Solo Tuya, 2002’s El Mejor Mariachi Femenino del Mundo, and 2009’s Latin and American Grammy-nominated Compañeras, also appearing on the soundtrack to the 2003 film Seabiscuit. The group has played for celebrities like John Travolta, Tom Petty, and George Harrison. In 2009, the group performed for President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama at the White House’s Cinco de Mayo celebration. Mariachi Reina de Los Angeles launched their professional career 20 years ago at MARIACHI USA and so it is fitting that they return to celebrate their 20th Anniversary on June 28th.

Mariachi Los Reyes – The most sought after Mariachi group in Hollywood is comprised of ten trained and experienced musicians; the young group is filled with talent, vigor and passion for the traditional Mexican vernacular music. Their staple elegant, youthful and energetic performances have taken them to share the stage in sold-out concerts with world-renowned singers of Mexican music including the late Jenni Rivera and Espinoza Paz. In 2012, Mariachi Los Reyes appeared in the Hollywood blockbuster “A Thousand Words” with Eddie Murphy.  On Television, they have appeared in various productions, including “About a Boy (NBC),” “Gang Related (FOX)” and, “New Girl (FOX)”. The group has also collaborated vocals for a Lady Gaga single and have shared the stage with top mariachi groups at MARIACHI USA.

Mariachi Tierra Querida de Ismael Hernandez* was formed in 2011. The group is comprised of exceptional talent with decades of experience including: Ismael Hernandez originally from Mariachi Los Camperos; Ismael’s son, Andres Hernandez, proudly representing the 4th generation of musical talent in their family name; Carlos Hernandez and; former Campero member, Luis Damian. In a short period, Mariachi Tierra Querida has been captivating audiences with their impressive vocals and strong traditional Mariachi style at their home, Gloria’s Restaurant in Huntington Park. The group has captured a style that is unique, refreshing, and nostalgic with music selections from far back in the Hernandez family’s long tradition of mariachi music.

Junko – Born and raised in Japan, Junko came to the U.S. in hopes of making her musical career come to fruition. While working at EPCOT Center, Orlando, Florida, she fell in love with the richness of mariachi music performed by Mariachi Cobre and quickly embraced the instant passion she felt for mariachi. She has shared the stage with Linda Ronstadt, Lalo Guerrero and Vikki Carr. Junko has been featured in international and national feature news media pieces due to the uniqueness of her attachment to mariachi. Currently focused on original music and her own band Kotolan that plays eclectic indie pop, features Junko singing in three languages, Spanish, English and Japanese, Junko performs and records in Los Angeles.
