Biography: Mariachi Los Amigos
Mariachi Los Amigos, founded in 1979, is the Washington DC area's longest existing mariachi ensemble. As its name implies, it was formed by a group of friends who shared a passion for the lively, extraverted sound of the mariachi and for the wide range of music that it plays.
The earliest members of Mariachi Los Amigos came from many nations and regions, including Mexico, Bolivia, Puerto Rico, Texas, and California. While its membership has evolved over the years, its original, passion-driven spirit remains. Founding members Luis González on vihuela and Daniel Sheehy on trumpet are from Mexico and California, respectively; guitarronero Mario Castro, Mexico; trumpeter Francisco Soto, Arizona; and violinists Terry "Toni Luna" Liu, Ohio; Daniel "Danny" Sheehy, Jr. (son of our director) of Falls Church, Virginia, and June Welsch of Fairfax, Virginia.
