Since their formation in 1990, Banda Machos (or “La Reina de las Bandas” as they’re commonly known) have been blazing a trail in the Mexican regional market.
They have amassed several number-one singles, platinum albums and countless awards from their musical peers. Now 24 years into their career, this 13-piece ensemble is going strong and kicking off the most exciting phase of their career as the creators of Quebadrita with their techno banda style.
On the social networks, Banda Machos are a dominant force as well. Their smash single “No Hay Problema” has earned nearly two million YouTube views and 2 videos for “Sangre De Indio” and “Al Gato y El Raton” (their all-time biggest hit) are well into the millions.
Originally from Villa Corona in the state of Jalisco, current band members include Agustín Mariscal, Alejandro Diaz, Arturo Avila, Eduardo Noriega, Efrain López, Eleuterio Velazquez, Francisco Bueno, Javier Vidal, Jose Juan Guardado, Julio Cesar Guerrero, Leocadio Bueno, Rosalío Palafox and Ruben de Landa.
