Mariachi Aguilas was started in 1974 in Antioch, California and consists of eight members — three violinists, two trumpeters, a guitarist, a vihuela player and a guitarron (bass) player. The band tours the entire San Francisco Bay Area from the Napa Valley, Sacramento and down to San Jose.
Mariachi Aguilas plays at weddings, birthday parties, anniversaries and other events. Some of their busiest times of the year are December 12th for the Virgen of Guadalupe celebrations, Cinco de Mayo, and Mother’s Day. With more than three decades of creating music, the connection between the older musicians and their knowledge of the Mariachi repertoire is incredible.
