RodeoHouston 2015 Concert: La Arrolladora Banda El Limón and La Maquinaria Norteña
With more than a dozen band members, La Arrolladora Banda El Limón is making a big sound in Mexico and the U.S. The band performs a variety of Mexican regional music including rancheras, corridos, ballads and cumbias. The band first captured the Mexican regional music scene in 1997 with the commercial recording debut of "Mas Arrolladora Que Nunca." Since then, the group has released eight albums between 1997 and 2001. In 2002, the band debuted its record label, and has since consistently released an album per year, both studio and live. The band reached its first-ever Billboard chart-topper with "Mas Adelante" in 2009.
In the past decade, La Maquinaria Norteña has evolved into a successful norteño band reaching the Top 10 in the regional Mexican chart in 2013. The original band started in Roswell, New Mexico, by former Los Rieleros vocalist Polo Urias. In 1994, the quintet released its debut album, Polo Urias y Su Máquina Norteña. Twelve years later, saxophone player Kieth Nieto separated from the band and formed his own La Maquinaria Norteña with his brothers. Today's La Maquinaria Norteña consists of accordion, drums, bass and electric guitar.
Doors open at 3:45 p.m.; performers usually take the stage between 5:45 and 6:15 p.m.
