Metal Featuring Chris Pérez is the latest band being fronted by Chris Pérez, the Tejano superstar and best known as lead guitarist for the Tejano band, Selena y Los Dinos, and husband of the late Selena. After Selena’s passing in 1995, Pérez formed the Chris Pérez Band, which signed with Hollywood Records and released their first album, Resurrection (1999), which won a Grammy Award for “Best Latin Rock or Alternative Album.” The band disbanded after their second album, Una Noche Mas (2002), was released. Pérez continued in the music business and often played with the Kumbia Kings. In 2012, Pérez wrote a book about his relationship with Selena titled, To Selena, with Love. Pérez's favorite musicians and inspirations for his band “Metal” include Van Halen, Mötley Crüe, Def Leppard, Kiss, The Scorpions, Ozzy Osbourne, Iron Maiden, and Carlos Santana.
Los Kumbia Kings are a Mexican-American cumbia group that was originally formed by Cruz Martinez and A.B Quintanilla in 1996. The Kumbia Kings came in where Selena y Los Dinos left off, dominating Latin pop for years on end and selling out venues in USA and Latin America. Their bilingual hitmaking collective fused traditional Mexican music (cumbia, above all) with urban American styles (hip-hop, funk, R&B, reggae), topping it all off with a slick sheen of easily enjoyable pop accessibility. More recently, Los Kumbia Kings have reunited their original members from both first and second generations led by original founding member, Cruz Martinez and the original lead singer, DJ Kane, along with featured singer Pee Wee, and “Nu Flavor” lead singer, Frankie Pangelinan. The group has had an outstanding return to the music prior to the pandemic, selling out 140+ concerts throughout Latin America in 2018 – 2019. They are now making their return to touring so don’t miss them at the Fair!
