It’s almost impossible to overstate the impact and influence of La Mafia.
Oscar De La Rosa and Mando Lichtenberger Jr. founded the group in the early ’80s and honed in on a unique sound that combined traditional elements with the melodies and polish of pop. La Mafia became one of the first Mexican-American groups to tour throughout the U.S., Mexico, Central and South America. They’ve scored countless radio hits, won Grammys and were recognized by Billboard magazine as one of the top 25 Latin artists of the past 25 years.
The current lineup includes De La Rosa, Lichtenberger, David De La Garza (keyboards, vocals) Tim Ruiz (bass), Joe Gonzales (drums) and Viktor Pacheco (guitar).
La Mafia founding members Oscar De La Rosa & Armando Lichtenberger Jr. started up in Houston in the early 1980s, and for more than three decades have become one of the largest and most critically-acclaimed names in Latin Music. Since the beginning, La Mafia has gained admirers worldwide thanks to a blend of Oscar De La Rosa’s passionate singing and Armando Lichtenberger Jr.’s polished productions. Thanks to this matchless talent, La Mafia has been able to become a household name to generations of music lovers.
Friends we are in new times where our world is dominated by the Internet, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and many other entertainment diversions. Music tastes keep changing and they should since music should always evolve. Radio stations now do researches of a few selected people to decide what it is they think you want to listen to. The big International record labels can’t afford to invest in artists as before because of the low record sales. The majority of Latin artists today are on independent labels as is La Mafia. To accomplish a Top 10 Billboard album is almost an impossibility . We sincerely wish to thank all our fans that bought our new album Amor y Sexo. You decide if an artist’s music is of importance or not.
We love you and thank you
Amigos estamos en nuevos tiempos donde domina el Internet, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube
y muchas otras cosas de diversión. Los gustos de música siguen cambiando y deben de cambiar porque todo evoluciona. La radio ahora ahora hacen incuestas de unas cuantas personas escojidas para decidir que es lo que creen que quieres escuchar. Las disqueras Internacionales ya no pueden invertir en artistas como antes por las bajas ventas. La mayoría de artistas Latinos hoy en día son independientes con su propio sello como lo somos La Mafia. Para lograr algo como un Top 10 en Billboard es algo casi impossible para un artista Independiente. Sinceramente agradecemos a todos ustedes los fans que nos apoyaron con la compra de esta producción Amor y Sexo. Ustedes deberás son los que deciden si un artista tiene importancia con su música o no.
Los amamos y los agradecemos

La Mafia lead singer Oscar de la Rosa expressed his frustration with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on stage at southeast Houston’s Club El Dorado. The four-time Grammy Award-winning artist had a problem with the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo’s “Go Tejano” day, which drew protests in past years for not featuring Tejano musicians. On Saturday, Oscar de la Rosa, the lead singer of La Mafia spoke out and told the organizers (the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HLSR) Board/Executive Committee) of the Go Tejano Day Livestock And Rodeo Show to “F_ck You” for not allowing Tejano music at this year’s major arena event.
Rodeo officials released the following statement, “The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo proudly celebrates the Hispanic heritage of Texas in all of its many facets on Go Tejano Day. “Go Tejano” has never been specific to one genre of music—it’s a play on our popular “Go Texan” slogan which was created in the 1950s.”
In 2008, RodeoHouston’s chief operating officer told the Chronicle Tejano bands were not put on the rodeo’s main stage on Tejano day that year because most visitors on Go Tejano Day would rather hear other genres of music. The organizers of the event say that they still used the “GO Tejano Day” theme and included other Hispanic music except the dominant Tejano (Tex-Mex) style of music heard throughout Texas.
La Mafia’s Oscar De La Rosa says RodeoHouston refuses to book Tajano acts for its Go Tejano Day concert lineups. De la Rosa including many Tejano style fans disagree and believe that they’re being discriminated, people should speak up and send e-mails to the Go Tejano Day organizers for them to reconsider and add a Tejano music venue as well. De la Rosa indicated that “it’s okay for Tejanos to participate at the rodeo event, but Tejano music is not allowed at the major arena.”

The lead singer of La Mafia Tejano band lashed out at organizers of the Houston “Go Tejano Day Livestock and Rodeo Show” for not allowing Tejano music at the major arena event. In a video that circulated on social networks during Saturday’s St. Valentine’s Dance at the El Dorado Club in front of a packed house Oscar De la Rosa, said… “as Latinos we never say nothing and keep our mouths shut, it’s time for us to speak out and time for us to stand our ground and say what we feel.” De la Rosa acknowledged on stage that his rodeo-bashing would raise some eyebrows. I know that I’m going to catch a lot of [grief] for this. You don’t realize what’s going to happen,” he said with a mischevious grin.
The singer’s criticism carries weight because of his strong history at Rodeo Houston. Founded in Houston in 1980, Tejano music band La Mafia set an audience record at the rodeo in 1991, drawing more than 55,000 fans to the Astrodome. They’ve been a rodeo hit in subsequent years as well, in fact La Mafia holds all time ‘Go Tejano’ attendance records for the Houston’s annual Live Stock Show and Rodeo for 1992, 1996 and again in 1998.
The organizers of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo (HLSR) event have phased out Tejano music in the last three to four years and has ignited protests from Tejano music enthusiasts and an online petition has even been started. The Tejano petition says, “…The HLSR board claims that it’s mission is to serve all ethnic groups that make up the Houston area but when it comes to Tejanos they seem to ignore them, although we make up a large portion of Houston’s area population. This change can make an positive impact on any child to defend the values, culture, and education. Please join, support and help us bring Tejano music back to The Major arena so it could continue to be an American tradition.” More than 3,000 have signed the petition.
