“I’ve loved mariachi music for years, and although I’m not fluent in Spanish, I’ve been trying to get better,” Strait says. “‘El Rey’ has been a favorite song of mine for years, and I request it every chance I get. So I decided to give it a shot. What a blast that was. I had a version by the great Vicente Fernandez. I played it for the guys, and we worked it out. I think it turned out great, and I hope the real mariachis like it. That will be the real test.”

Has anybody else been wondering what AB has been up to?

abIt’s been almost a year since La Mafia gave AB and his Kumbia All Starz a whoopin at the “Texas Shootout” and since he CANCELED the other battles that he and La Mafia were going to do in various cities.  He’s been keeping a low profile ever since.  In the meantime DJ Kane has been performing on his own, Chris Perez has been working on his own project and nobody has heard anything about the Kumbia All Starz, leading to speculation that they had disbanded.  Well it seems that they are getting ready to tour again , with some tour dates in Northern California.   Click on the photo of AB to read the article titled  A.B. Quintanilla: Never ride on success in a Sacramento CA newspaper.
