Los Salazar

Why book Los Salazar?

Give your party/event an authentic taste of Mexican music! We are a family trio/band; father, daughter, and son. We dress impecably with elegant, yet fun, mexican/mariachi attire. Our trio/mariachi band consists of three acoustic instruments; a lead-mexican-guitar ("requinto"), rhythm guitar, and a mariachi bass ("guitarrón). We have an infinite repertoire exceeding over 1,000 songs (we're not exagerating). This isn't our part time job or something we just do on the weekends. This is what we do. This is our profession.

Cinco De Mayo

Dear Carlos,
Your group was fantastic, Our Cinco De Mayp party was a complete succes because of your wonderful music, my guests were spell bound with your beautiful singing and music.They tell me it was our BEST party ever. They all wanted to know where I found you, I told them on the internet.
You were very prompt, so I was able to surprise our guests. Thank You for the extra time you send with requests, and playing my Dads favotite song " Avia Maria" It brought tears to my eyes, and allowed my Dad to join us from afar...You guys were just woonderful, We wouldn't ever use anyone else
Many Thanks,
The Masons

The Best Mariachi Band!

I give 5 stars to Los Salazar as an Overall Rating. They were the best Mariachi Band I've ever seen and heard. Los Salazar was highly recommended by my co-worker. They performed in front of an audience of over 100 employees during a business year-end meeting. Everyone enjoyed their performances and were dancing in their seats! They were very professional and I truly appreciated this very talented family, father and his 2 sons. What an excellent performance. I'd given their business cards to other potential customers. I would definitely hire them again for other events! Thank you!

Review by Francesca G.

Trio Los Salazar surpassed my expectations by miles. My Catholic wedding ceremony was blessed with such beautiful music. I cannot explain what I felt during the ceremony. The Ave Maria was an act of God. Los Salazar also played during the cocktail hour & dinner. I received many compliments thanks to the music. Furthermore, our first dance to Hermoso Cariño will remain in my heart with much sentiment.

Thank you very much, Los Salazar for making my wedding day more beautiful than I ever imagined!

Review by Victoria L.

My Mother took me to hear "this little trio" at a restauraunt one evening to see if I would like them for my wedding. I don't recall the restauraunt, I don't remember what I ste, but I sure remember La Familiar Salazar! And Mom hired them that night. The wedding day came, Azucena was very ill that day and couldn't make it. Even though her beautiful voice was missing, the music was unforgettable! Mr Salazar gave us a generous discount although they were worth the full original price agreed upon. I seen the kids later on Objetivo Fama to cheer Azucena all the to finals! What a fantastic family and fine job Mr Salazar has done with his kids. All the best to them always. (for some reason the rating only allows me to give 4.5 starts for communication, but it should be 5)

Carlos and his band were awesome! Great voices, took requests, very professional! I would hire them again in a heartbeat. The birthday boy was surprised and very pleased with them also. This is the second time I have had the opportunity to listen to them, both times were excellent.

Review by Araceli E.

Los Salazar were AMAZING!!!!!! I'm glad I chose them for our father's day celebration. My husband and father absolutely loved them. This was my first time hiring a mariachi band and I wasn't sure what the cost would be exactly. It was a little higher than what I assumed, yet after having them at our home, I have to admit they are worth every penny. In fact, we liked them so much that we actually hired them for an additional hour. THANK YOU SO MUCH! I will definately use LOS SALAZAR again in the future.

Review by Elizabeth M.

I really enjoyed the music especially my mom. She was so surprised she cried but because they were so good. They know all the songs you want to hear, they have know them all. Our guest ask how i got them because they like them so much and they know how to get a party started. I recommend them for any event. I know if i need to get a party started i will call them again. Thanks Mariachi Salazar
Sincerely, Liz

Los Salazar

Trio/Mariachi Salazar was founded by Ruben Salazar in 1996. It’s a trio band made up of a family; father, daughter and son. A way to think of this trio is as having three lead singers! Each one of them has a beautiful voice and when they harmonize and sing together, the only word that can describe them is AWESOME.

Carlos Ruben Salazar, the son, plays the guitarrón (mariachi bass). Azucen Salazar, the daughter, plays rhythm-guitar. Ruben Salazar, the father and founder, plays the requinto (mexican-lead-guitar). They play and sing at the same time. So technically, you’re hearing 6 instruments; 3 voices, 2 guitars, and a bass.

Ruben Salazar, the founder and father, began his career as a musician at the early age of eleven back in Mexico in 1966; he started singing and playing the guitar in buses, corner-taco stands, and bars (no joke…). As the years went by, Ruben learned from many master Mexican musicians and became a world class musician himself. In 1986 he migrated to the United States of America with his wife and two kids (Carlos Rubén & Azucena).

In 1992, Carlos Rubén (only 11 years old), joined him. They performed as a duet up until 1996. When Azucena turned eleven (in 1996) she joined them and they became “Trio Los Salazar.” Together they became extremely popular and became very much in demand.

They immediately began appearing in numerous T.V. shows: “Escándalo TV,” “Primera Edición,” “Cuanto Cuesta El Show,” “Noticias Univisión,” “¿Qué Pasa Con José Vargas?,” “El Grito de Independencia,” and many more. In addition, Azucena and Carlos Ruben participated in the National T.V. show, “Objetivo Fama 2005” for 14 consecutive weeks where Azucena made the finals and was 1st place Runner Up out of thousands of participants! Azucena even protagonizad a music video with Mexican Celebrities “Paquita La Del Barrio” and “Ezequiel Peña.” She also appeared in the T.V. shows “Sábado Gigante,” “El Gordo y La Flaca,” and “Despierta America.”

Moreover, this trio/band was requested to perform at the White House (for President Bush himself) in 2006 for a “Cinco de Mayo” celebration (go to the pictures link to view their picture with the President and Emilio Estefán). In 2008, they were the opening act for a well established celebrity (Paquita La Del Barrio), at the Gibson Amphitheatre. They also performed in the Golden Eagle Awards, sharing the stage with internationally-renowned singers José Feliciano, José José, and Viki Carr. Their repertoire exceeds over 1000 songs (without exaggerating) and their prices are very accessible.

Aside from their extensive professional experience, one of their greatest qualities is that they are very down to earth people. They’re friendly and are very easy to work with; they will always make every possible accommodation to satisfy their customers 100%.

Rubén Salazar

Singer/Lead-Guitarist (Requinto)

Testimonials

although usually a trio they gladly added horns and even a violin at my request. and they were magnificent - everything I could have hoped for and better. the party was in full swing when they entered... horns announcing their arrival, music playing as they meandered through the party and somehow found themselves in front of the guest of honor whom they commenced to serenade. they brought surprise, excitement and energy and added greatly to our festivities. I wish I could have them here every weekend. greatly recommended.

– -Tom W, Long Beach, CA

This is by far the best mariachi music I've ever heard live! This talented family is amazing. I have no words to describe how good they are! They were on time (30 minutes early) and they knew every single song we asked for! Everyone said great things about them! Thank you!

– -Destiny S, Newport Beach, CA

I was so pleased with the Trio Salazar! What can I say about them? The words, classy, Beautiful, Talented come to mind. Everyone in the room kept asking me, "Where did you get these guys? They are really good!" I would highly recommend them and would use them again! Thank you Salazar family for making my daughters wedding such a beautiful one!

– -Elda M, Malibu, CA

A local favorite of mine. Can't believe they know all the songs I ask for.
I've seen Trio Los Salazar on tv so many times and it's very exciting to have them play for my parties. All my friends and family love them. One of the best things about Trio Los Salazar is that they are all family; whic makes them unique. They offer excellent service, price, quality and sound.

– AA-6 from Santa Ana, CA

We really loved this Trio after hearing them play for the first time. We had them for our wedding and they were really, really great. Everyone at our reception was very impressed with them.
