I was blessed to attend a sold-out Hollywood Bowl featuring four and a half hours of non-stop mariachi music with a special tribute to the legendary singer, songwriter, Jose Alfredo Jimenez. Created and produced by Rodri J. Rodriguez, the Festival consisted of a night full of the best mariachi music including: the famous Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan from Mexico; Grammy nominated Mariachi Los Arrieros del Valle from Texas; Mariachi Estrella de Jalisco and Mariachi Los Reyes from Los Angeles; and the Grammy nominated ladies of Trio Ellas.

We sang, we cried, we became one under the stars and unified for the love of Mariachi. The evening ended with an impressive firework finale. I am so thankful to have attended and guarantee I will attend next year.
This year, Rodri also shared the launch of MARIACHI USA Radio for mariachi music lovers, giving us the opportunity to enjoy mariachi music 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Check out www.mariachiusa.com/radio for a taste of what my night was like.
This was the 24th year of the MARIACHI USA Festival and I look forward to the 25 year! Thank you Rodri J. Rodriguez for producing a beautiful show!
