The following description was submitted by the event organizer.

Los Temerarios' bubblegum ranchera was the romantic soundtrack to millions of Mexican and Mexican-American youths' lives during the '90s. Using traditional rock percussion, they created a contemporary sound whose appeal frequently took them to the top tier of the Latin and Mexican Regional Music charts, in addition to placing a whopping 16 titles in the Top 200. Founded by brothers and singer/songwriters Adolfo and Gustavo Angel with their cousin Fernando Angel, they audaciously titled their first album Los 14 Grandes Hits de Los Temerarios in 1983. Ranchera was appended with electric instrumentation during the early '90s and their popularity snowballed. The band built their following with singles and crowd-pleasing live performances long before their records became best-sellers. In 1993, they commenced a two-decade run of charting dates with Mi Vida Eres Tú and 1995's Camino del Amor. 2000's En la Madrugada Se Fue was certified platinum by the RIAA after selling over a million units. 2008's Si Tú Te Vas was awarded Billboard's A La Música Latina prize for Best Regional Mexican Album. Following the award, Los Temerarios received nominations for Latin Grammy and Lo Nuestro Awards, and took home an ASCAP award for the chart-topping single "Si Tú Te Vas."
