Spotlight 29 Casino is proud to welcome back one of the most popular norteño bands, Los Tucanes De Tijuana in the Spotlight Showroom.
Los Tucanes de Tijuana, who recently performed at the Coachella Music Festival and was presented with keys to the city of Coachella, have been one of the most successful and renowned Regional Mexican bands in both Mexico and the U.S. for over 30 years.
The 12-time Grammy nominated group was the first norteño band to take the Coachella stage in the festival’s history. Mario Quintero Lara and his friends started the group in Tijuana, Mexico in 1987. Since then, they have released over 30 albums, sold over 15 million and topped the radio charts with more than 70 hit singles.
The famed five-piece group has several gold, platinum and multiplatinum records and numerous impressive awards, such as the Musical Group of the Year (EL HERALDO Award), a Latin Grammy for Best Norteño Album in 2012 and most recently in 2018 earned two awards at the BMI Latin Awards for the most played songs on the U.S Radio, "Suena La Banda" and "Panchito El F1".
The BMI Awards in its 26th edition made a great tribute to the legendary singer-songwriter Mario Quintero Lara awarding the highest recognition to the award-winning leader of Los Tucanes de Tijuana with the BMI Presidential Award for his outstanding achievements and contributions to the Latin music community over more than 32 years of artistic career, already with 35 BMI Awards.
