A new standard for Tejano and Latin Music has been set with this; an Album that will stand the test of time. No Tejano CD collection should be without this.
Grupo Alamo, the culmination of a concept established 10 years ago to provide Tejano enthusiasts a band with a unique and crowd pleasing flava, is proud to announce the continuation of the legacy with"Sin Parar."Originally managed by Ernest Gonzales Sr. and Jr. and part of Ro' Records, Grupo Alamo has maintained its prominent status in the Music Industry and is ready to reach further with the help of Big J Management. Grupo Alamo feels that their greatest responsibility is to reach the audience and community by presenting themselves in a professional manner in all aspects of their work.
"Sin Parar" promises to be a true fan rewarding album with Lead Vocalist Tom Esquivel, who has been with the band for the last three years and never fails to shower enthusiasm and excitement at all shows. Nominated for Drummer of the Year by TTMA, Edward Mendoza has maintained the unique style and feel that has been Grupo Alamo for the last 10 years. Roger Contreras, the bassist and a true veteran of the Tejano industry, also has written several Trademark Tejano songs including "Entre Cantina Y Cantina," "Poquito A Poca," "Con El Tiempo," and "Una Eternidad." John Segura, the keyboardist and newest member to the band, is a true reflection of the image of Grupo Alamo with his education in music and humble personality.
Ernie Gonzales, the accordion player, originated the idea of forming a band 10 years ago with a unique and crowd pleasing flava. Ernest Gonzales, the guitarist, brings his knowledge and maturity to the group to help maintain its focus at all times. Orriginating from San Antonio, Texas in 1993 Grupo Alamo has noticeably been doing their homework. In 1995 they were nominated for "Best Band, Self Produced" at the Pura Vida Awards.
In November of 1998 "Illusiones," Grupo Alamo's first album, was released. Two songs, "Camaron Peleao" and "Anzuelo De Amor" listed in major publications like Radio Y Musica and Antenna Magazine. Grupo Alamo has had huge radio success charting the top 10 in Texas, New Mexico, Chicago and California stations. "Sin Parar" is primed to build on this previous success and set new standards. Grupo Alamo has performed in Corpus Christi's "Domingo Live" show, which is broadcasted on major network television network ABC. The band members have been greatly involved with the "Stay In School" program sponsored by the National Basketball Association as well as performing at several schools in the surrounding areas. Grupo Alamo has also participated in charitable events such as the Annual "Feast of Sharing" Holiday Dinners, the San Antonio oo's "Festival De Animales", and several ongoing benefits and festivals. Grupo Alamo has established itself as one of the top Tejano Bands in the Industry, due in equal parts to the help and support of their fans, their love for music, and commitment they have for their fans.
