It’s been nearly three decades since they were chamacos, but Jaime DeAnda and the guys still have the same energy and charisma they did when they first started, and their fans still love them just as much as they did then. Their career has included numerous Grammy and Latin Grammy nominations, two Tejano Music Awards, and hits like “Yolanda,” “Como Te Llamas Paloma,” “Ex-Novia,” and “Pajaro Negro.”

Their most recent album, Born to Be Bad, was released in March and features popurris of favorites and greatest hits as well as special guest conjunto legend Rene Joslin (father of Chamacos bajo sexto player Roel Joslin) on “Al Pie de Este Arbol.”
