Mariachi Alegre established 1994, has quickly become one of the most popular groups in the region.
Based out of El Paso, Texas, Mariachi Alegre was established in 1994, and has quickly become one of the most popular mariachi groups in the region. In its origins, the group consisted of high school and University of Texas at El Paso students. It has now flourished to include a mix of professionals and university students, and it prides itself on its member composition which includes high school & middle school teachers, a medical laboratory scientist, a CPA, and even a postdoctoral biochemistry researcher! Currently, the group is an eleven-piece ensemble whose repertoire spans from the traditional rancheras, boleros, danzones and huapangos, to the not-so-traditional bluegrass, tangos and even El Paso-style oldies. Through the years, Mariachi Alegre has gone on to perform at various venues, local gigs, and some out-of-state and country performances and competitions. The group hopes to not only influence musicians around its community, but also take its music to as many people possible around the southwest.
