Mariachi El Bronx and
W/Homeless Gospel Choir
August 14 & 15
Van Halen went from David Lee Roth to Sammy Hagar and never missed a beat. Their sound changed but it didn’t matter, gaining new fans and keeping old ones too. The Bronx didn’t change their lead singer but they sure did change their sound. Going from a hardcore punk band to a mariachi band of all things. It’s safe to say no other band has made the transition from one extreme genre to the next all while never losing popularity.
The kicker of it all is that the casual fan may not have known Mariachi El Bronx and The Bronx are the same lineup. Large music festival like Coachella and Bonnaroo who hosted Mariachi El Bronx in 2011 and 2012 respectively have only helped to skyrocket their popularity. The Bronx on the other hand worked their way through the underground punk scene starting in 2002.
Mariachi El Bronx most recently opened for Gogol Bordello and Flogging Molly at Stage AE and played the Club at Stage AE in 2014 while The Bronx were in town in 2013 playing the now defunct, 6119 Penn Ave, venue in East Liberty. The Bronx were also on the 2008 Warpred Tour bill at Post Gazette Pavilion in Burgettstown.
