Banda El Recodo showed how happy they were to be back in the L.A. area with a great performance.

Banda El Recodo put on a phenomenal performance, put together by KLAX 97.9FM La Raza, at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena July 12, in front of a lively and excited crowd.

Collaborations between solo artists and groups from the regional Mexican genre are becoming more and more prolific, as they usually offer dynamic and varied shows where there audience comes out winning. This time it was Banda El Recodo and Espinoza Paz’s turn.

Alfonso Lizárraga, leader of Banda El Recodo, spoke a few words to the media before going on stage.

“We’re back again in Los Angeles, very grateful for our fans who make our visits possible. We’re at a great show with great talent, and we have the opportunity to share the stage with Espinoza Paz, a young man we consider a personal friend.  It’s fantastic that collaborations such as these are now possible.

“Music is there to be shared,” continued Lizárraga. “We have no problem collaborating with anyone.  As a matter of fact, our new album features a song we did with Wisin titled ‘Las Fresas.’ We’re always open to working with other artists, especially if they are compatriots.”

The band hit the stage around 6 p.m., decked out in their trademark blue ensembles. They expressed their gratitude to their fans and promptly got everyone on their feet with “El Sinaloense.” They followed with “La Culebra,” “Acabame de Matar,” “Mi Nina Bonita” and “Vas A Llorar Por Mi”, among others. They also performed music from their latest album, Mi Vicio Más Grande, such as “Las Fresas.” At the end of their performance, they spent time addressing their fans, taking pictures and signing autographs.

The same cannot be said about Paz’s performance. It was hectic and chaotic from the start, as the singer showed up at the arena minutes before he was to go on stage, causing a ruckus on his way up.

Paz, as is customary, did not allow any media outlets near the stage while he was performing and did not agree to any interviews. Nevertheless, the audience loved his performance. He sang his greatest hits for about an hour and a half.

Banda El Recodo continues promoting Mi Vicio Más Grande, which remains at No. 1 in the charts, and will be traveling to Spain where they will perform for the very first time.
