Tequila Rock Revolution

Mar 20, 2022

12:00am – 12:40am CT

Cooper's BBQ

Tequila Rock Revolution is a metal-fueled, Mariachi-infused spectacle of sight and sound paying homage to the tradition of Mariachi through an unprecedented fusion with modern metal and electronica. The band is the brainchild of Austin Latino Rocker/Electric Violinist Haydn Vitera.

The machine gun rhythms of vihuela fire over a bed of intense dubstep grooves, requinto trades licks with shredding lead guitar and Mariachi strings join forces with 7-string Viper electric violin. "Metallized" Mariachi standards and well-known metal/rock covers are weaved into a performance rife with dark imagery, Mexican folklore and stunning visual effects.

Donning traditional Mexican sugar skull face paint, the 8-piece supergroup features some of Austin's premiere Latin Rock and modern metal musicians joining forces with some of Texas’ most accomplished Mariachis.

The band’s digital releases include high-octane renditions of Mariachi standards “El Cascabel” and “Cancion Del Mariachi,” a dark re-imagining of “Remember Me” from the Oscar-winning film Coco, and a powerful signature cover of the Ozzy Osbourne/Lita Ford classic "Close My Eyes Forever."
