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 Oscar De La Rosa (lead vocalist), Mando Lichtenberger, Jr. (keyboards, accordion), David De La Garza (keyboards, vocals), Tim Ruiz (bass), Viktor Pacheco (guitar), Robbie Longoria (percussions, bajo sexto), Eduardo Torres (drums).
