PALA – Pala Casino Spa Resort announced La Séptima Banda is coming to the Starlight Theater Saturday, Sept. 26. The outdoor concert will feature a variety of regional Mexican music, from bandas and cumbias to rancheras and narcocorridos. General admission tickets are on sale now for $30.
La Séptima Banda is a large 17-piece group which plays a variety of regional Mexican music, from bandas and cumbias to rancheras and their specialty, narcocorridos. The group began playing together in 1994 under the name Banda San Luis and recorded two albums for Sony Mexico. Neither album charted, and La Banda left the label.
After much deliberation, the members unanimously decided to change their name to Banda la Aventurera. Over the next several years, they released four independently issued albums by Hyphy Music, three of which were written by Espinoza Paz and all have subsequently been reissued under the La Séptima Banda moniker.
In 2014, the group changed names again, becoming La Séptima Banda, and signed to Fonovisia. Their first recording was backing Enigma Norteño on the single “Narco de Narcos.” The band’s own debut, “Segurito Segurito,” was released in the spring of 2015, prefaced by the single “Bonito y Bello.” The following year, the group released “A Todo Volumen,” topping the Latin charts. “Micha y Micha” – “half-and-half” – arrived in 2017. As the title suggests, the LP was split between studio tracks like “Se Defiende” and “La Bruta” and live recordings like “El Narco de Narcos” and “El Chapo Barrial.”
La Séptima Banda will join the existing lineup of summer concert series events at Pala Casino: Superstar Imposters – Summer Tribute Series, Funky Funk Get Down – Big Grooves & Dance Moves Series and Up & Coming Country Artists.
