All members, excluding Andrea Miguel, have been playing the local rock scene for more than 30 years. Andrea is a new and upcoming female singer that brings in an amazing singing talent and energy.

Roberto De La Cruz is a classical trained guitarist that has mastered his craft and has been part of several tributes to bands like: Metallica with Symphony, Yngwie Malmsteen, and DIO.

Raul Urias is a Jazz-trained bass player that has made an impact in the local music scene with several successful working bands.

Jay Arriaga is not only a great rock and metal drummer but has also been a very successful music promoter. Jay has been part of several tributes like: Pantera, Metallica, Tool, Lamb of God, Rammstein and Sepultura to name a few.

Charlie Duarte is a very well-rounded singer with influences from bands like Iron Maiden, Dream Theater, Queensrÿche, Judas Priest, DIO, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and a lot of the ’80s hair band singers. Charlie also participated in the same tribute band projects with Roberto de La Cruz.

Energetic, and equally talented female vocalist, Andrea Miguel is the “icing on the cake” who contributes her powerful voice and showmanship needed for a show of this magnitude. Andrea has also participated on a couple of very successful tributes to Selena.

Rock Empire is a unique tribute band with male and female voices delivering the musical prowess and energy that will be both a great hearing and visual experience!
