It was an intense, yet wonderful experience on the evening of Saturday October 18, 2014. We participated in a mariachi competition at the Lone Star Park in Grand Prairie, Texas. Canales Furniture/Muebleria invited several mariachi bands across the the Dallas-Fort Worth Metro-Plex to compete for the grand prize of $1000. We went head to head with many talented mariachi bands.
Unfortunately, we experienced our first defeat in the final round. Many of the selections we performed included some of our favorite traditional songs such as; Fiesta Del Mariachi and El Son Del Sapo. We also decided to throw in some our popular and latest alternative renditions such as “Get Lucky” Gangam Style” “Hoy Tengo Ganas de Ti” and “The Devil Went Down to Georgia.”
Mariachi New Era would like to thank all of our friends, fans, and family for all the support. Because of you all, the pain of defeat was remedied by your love. Through this experience, we’ve learned to not just celebrate our victories, but also embrace our defeats. It is what will drive us to be the best we can be.
