Banda MS de Sergio Lizarraga, award-winning regional Mexican group from Mazatlan, Sinaloa announces a tour stop at Sprint Center on Saturday, Sept. 1.
There is perhaps no group that has been more successful at popularizing traditional brass based Mexican Banda music than Banda MS (short for Banda Sinaloense MS de Sergio Lizarraga). Banda MS’ concerts are known to feature rancheras but they also include Mexican pop and classic rock music. Founded in 2003, as a 15-member band by tuba player Sergio Lizárraga and his brother, clarinetist Alberto Lizarraga.
Banda MS is today’s hottest band with the big Sinaloense sound. Their most successful album to date is En Preparacion, the group’s fifth full-length record, which was release in 2009. Banda MS’ worldwide popularity is due to the musical talent of its members and the band’s ability to contemporize traditional Mexican music.
