Last year the Latin R&B Legends TIERRA from Los Angeles headlined the Desoto Latino Music Festival and fans from around the metroplex were surprised to see a band of this caliber performing in Desoto, Texas. Well, after that performance it was a sure shot to have them return again and I am here to announce that on Saturday, September 9, 2017, TIERRA will return to the “Latino Heritage Music Festival” and Dallas’ super hot HAVANA NRG! will be once again joining them on stage to set the party early on! By popular demand we added DJ Jammin Joe of Sirius XM/Dash Radio to get the dj mix party off early!
Tierra, the band named “Best R&B Vocal Group” by four leading magazines including Billboard. They started their career in East Los Angeles with a blend of rock, pop, jazz, R&B and salsa. The result was a Latin R&B rhythm which produced classics like “Together”, “Gonna Find Her”, “Memories” and “Zoot Suit Boogie”. Founded in 1972, the band has performed internationally and continues to perform with their unique smooth and soulful sounds. Throughout Terra’s history, Rudy Salas has been, and continues to be the leader of the band, record producer, and head of business affairs for Tierra. Tierra was the first Latino band to have four songs on the national chart and two simultaneously in the Top 100. They have performed in such prestigious shows such as Carnegie Hall, The American Music Awards, American Bandstand, and The Dorothy Chandler Pavilion.
Tierra is widely known to have played a role in opening doors for other Latino and non-Latino superstars of today, including comedian Paul Rodriguez, Arsenio Hall, Sheila E., Gloria Estefan, Los Lobos, Latino Comic of the Year, Rudy Moreno, and more.
Havana NRG! are celebrating their 15th Anniversary with their fans across the country and cannot wait to once again open for Tierra for this cultural event during Hispanic Heritage Month.
The TIERRA/Havana NRG! combo is becoming a very nice package in the area and who knows, maybe one day we’ll pair them up for a tour, but rest assure, the time is approaching to make plans for the entire family for Saturday, September 9th as this is a FREE, FAMILY EVENT outdoors in the Desoto Amphitheater, 211 E. Pleasant Run Rd, Desoto, Texas. Event begins early 5pm and ends by 10:00pm. All ages allowed.
