History of Our Mariachi Band:

Our bandleader, Luciano Rodriguez, was raised in a musical family. His father, Filemon Rodriquez, was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico in 1920. At age 12, Filemon and his younger brother found themselves the head of the household when their beloved father passed away. With a harp in their home, the boys learned to play music by ear and soon found themselves supporting their family during the depression by playing street music in order to make a living. When Filemon grew up, he moved to Mexico City and had seven children, four boys and three girls. Filemon passed on his passion for music to his children, including Luciano, who later became a musician himself.

Luciano Rodriguez and his band, Cielito Lindo, have been a part of the Casa Guadalajara family since 1996, entertaining guests from far and near with their lively traditional mariachi music. Three of Luciano’s five children play most evenings at Casa Guadalajara.

The group plays over 2,000 songs and the most requested song is “Son de La Negra.”
