“MARIACHI USA is more than a concert to our fans. Four generation deep families embrace it as their mecca and enjoy it as their annual family gathering. This year our traditional half time jam will feature a Bruno Mars medley Mariachi style, reflective of our retro acculturated musicians and audience alike. While not surprised, since California is now comprised of a 39% Latino majority, it wows us that our audience is getting younger each year which means more than ever we must deliver a cutting edge production that weaves tradition with the contemporary so come on get happy! ” said Rodriguez, Creator, Producer and Host of MARIACHI USA.
Topping off this 4-½ hour action-packed lineup is a spectacular fireworks finale by Pyrospectaculars that accompanies the traditional sing-along of 17,000 fans singing to El Rey, Volver Volver, Viva Mexico and La Negra.
