Gainesville mariachi band knows how to fiesta

By on October 25th, 2011

It may not be Cinco de Mayo, but one local Mariachi band is putting up a “fiesta” every time they perform. Florida’s 89.1 WUFT-FM’s Stephanie Bechara tells us how one local band can break out the guitar along with other instruments to shake up more than a few maracas. (Band members include: Diyaney Salas, guitar; Juan Carlos Torres, trumpet; Pepe Torres, trumpet; Jesus Cruz, guitarron; Isaiahs Mejia, vihuela; Miguel Gonzalez, violin.)
