Renowned norteño band Los Tigres Del Norte consists of five Mexican-American brothers from California. Performing together since the 1970s, Los Tigres Del Norte was the first act signed by the now famous Spanish-language record label, Fama Records. Signing with Fama helped the group elevate to the next level by upgrading to an electric style of music which included bass, drums and electric guitars and appealed to a growing group of Mexican-Americans.
Released in 1972, the band’s breakout single "Contrabando y Traición" is still one of their most popular hits on the radio today. The single prompted a career most regional Mexican bands only dream of achieving, including 15 No. 1 hits on Billboard’s Regional Mexican Songs chart and 50 studio albums, 24 of which reached No. 1 on the Regional Mexican Albums chart.
Los Tigres Del Norte will return to Rodeo Houston to perform on Go Tejano Day, Sunday, March 10.
