Emerging from South Gate in 1996 on the southeast edges of urban LA, the rowdy and popular quintet formed by former schoolmates borrowed the name given by a crotchety old village crone in Guanajuato Mexico, hometown of band co-founder Armando “Don Diavlo” Ramos. “Berrinche,” English for a gruff, angry complaint, grouse or tantrum, reflected their irreverent rebel spirit. The band went from backyards to the go-to opening act for the bigger touring rock en español and alt-indie bands playing auditoriums and major venues. They released the independent demo "A Lo Que Te Truje Chencha," selling over 10K copies. A slew of videos representing their most enduring material can be found on YouTube. Currently, Chencha Berrinches released a 4 song EP on Nov.2 2017 with an All-star production. Produced by Sax, founding member of Mexican Rock legends, Maldita Vecindad, featuring cameos by some of the top musicians in the Mexican ska community like Tremenda Korte & Visuals by Tuco Flores of Victimas Del Dr. Cerebro. The band will begin production of a much anticipated album under the direction of John Avila a master in the industry, who has worked with Save Ferris, Viernes 13, Oingo Boingo.
