  • Dave G Music presents Fiesta del Norte, Connecticut's First Mariachi Band

    Dressed in traditional "charro" outfits, our repertoire spans from the Mariachis of Jalisco to the Nortenas of Chihuahua, to the harp music of Vera Cruz, down to the Marimba music of Chiapas. All this played on authentic instruments such as guitar, vihuela, guitarron, violin, harp, bajosexto, trumpet, accordion and marimba with beautiful singing throughout. Song translations, storytelling and cultural insights are interwoven between musical numbers.

    A member of the CT Commission of Culture and Tourism since 1986, this Hartford based group has serenaded New England audiences at major festivals, First Nights, colleges, schools (K through 12), libraries, town greens, rest homes and many other facilities.

    A hallmark of a Fiesta del Norte concert is the wonderful audience participation with singing, dancing, hand-clapping, maraca-shaking, and the joyful calls or 'gritos' heard on every song. Our concerts are often bilingual and designed for all cultures and age groups. So put on your sombreros and celebrate Mexico with Fiesta del Norte!


  • On behalf of the Mexican Committee for Yankee Homecoming we want to thank you and your band members for a wonderful, memorable performance which made our event!
