El Chicano

El Chicano grew out of the Latin music scene from the streets of East Los Angeles. Originally as “The VIP’s”, founded by Freddie Sanchez, El Chicano was the most successful of the L.A. Latin Rock recording artists. Their seven album run for MCA Records included classic albums such as Viva Tirado, Celebration, Revolucion, El Chicano and Cinco.  Over a 40 year span, El Chicano has garnered five gold records and recorded ten LP's. Their music has been included in over 50 compilations, and has also been used on several major movies and television shows. El Chicano continues to perform, doing many shows in the USA and abroad to their devoted legions of fans which is the driving force behind any El Chicano performance filled with Passion and Energy in many Sold Out shows.

Havana NRG

Celebrating over 15 years of great success, Havana NRG continues to be one of the strongest up-and-coming Latin orchestras of the world. A lot has happened since their debut in Dallas in the summer of 2002. Not only have they been fortunate enough to perform in every major venue and public event in the State of Texas, but they have also traveled to the surrounding states and as far as New York City, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami and San Francisco. Havana NRG has been able to prove that they are indeed "a new breed of Latin band," the New Rhythm Generation that is taking Cuban roots to new levels of performance. Havana NRG owe their great success not only to a magnificent combination of fantastic musicians, but mainly to very supportive audiences everywhere.
