They were great. I'd definitely hire them again
Members of Mariachi Relampago have been involved in recordings for movie soundtracks, library archives, studio archives, commercials (Television & Radio), and music CDs. Some members have taught in Mariachi Festivals in the state of Texas and beyond. Mariachi Relampago also donates money to charitable organizations, and on occasion, performs for the community to benefit organizations with a good cause.
Mariachi Relampago received an invitation to compete in the prestigious Houston Livestock and Rodeo Mariachi Invitational and took 2nd place. Mariachi Relampago was also honored with the award of "Mejor Mariachi" from Univision's Premios a la Musica Latina. With all their hard work and dedication for the city of Austin, they were the first group from Austin to be nominated and win the award. No other group can claim they were the first. They are also winners of Austin's first mariachi competition, "Fiesta del Mariachi" held at the Long Center. In June of 2009, Mariachi Relampago was one of the opening acts for Mariachi Vargas, who are known as El Mejor Mariachi del Mundo (the world's best mariachi). As Austin's only Mariachi on a record label, you can expect to hear a new CD from them every couple of years. Check out Viewpoint Records for other great artists in the area.
