Details of Pesado and the Ticket Luck value
The Pesado, which translates to the Heavy Group, is a Mexican band currently comprising of Beto Zapata, Pepe Elizondo, July Tamez, Luis Mario Garza and Antonio Small. They introduced a new and innovative form of music from Northern Mexico and have said to bring about a new wave which has inspired a younger generation.
The band was formed by Beto Zapata and Pepe Elizando in 1993 in the city of Monterrey. The two greatly appreciated the northern Mexican music and decided they should contribute to it. Beto, used to play with his accordion when he was a child, so he incorporated his talent into this band. The group has developed this unique talent of mixing Latin beats with their own compositions of banjo, following a sexton with drums as backup. The final touch of the voice of the singer puts the cherry on top thus bringing a modern effect into the old northern style.
Since 1993, the group has enjoyed popularity in Mexico’s music industry, always being at the top of charts. Some of their most famous songs include “I”, “Day after Day”, “Do Not Be Afraid to Mourn” and “I’m Asking You Please”. They had solidified their position with the album “Thousand Stories”. This album also brought them fame in America as they had been in the top ten of The Mexican billboards in the United States. They had been signed under the Fonovisa label, until 1999.
The band has had changes to its members over the years. Originally, in 1993, it was Beto Zappata continuing his childhood talent of playing the accordion, there were two people on the drums, Mario Padilla and Pepe Elizondo. Mario later left. Bass was handled by Rodolfo Gujardo and the banjo which was played according to a sexto or “Bajosexto” as the members would call it was played by the new members, who could handle it. The band quickly met up with a record label agent, Today Warner and they produced their first album under Metro Casa Musical. The label wanted the group to compose their second album in the same year, to which they agreed. So accordingly, “Puros Corrido” was released. With this album, Psuedo Tickets grew in demand as fans anxiously waited to see them live.
They released their third album the following year with their newest member, Los Tucanes de Tijuana. Some may believe that they were going too fast, but the album; “Love Came” proved to be a huge success with excellent tracks such as “Don’t Br Afraid to Mourn”, “Came Love”, “and We Cannot Continue” and many more timeless classics. As their name was “Heavy Band”, they earned a slogan of meeting up expectations with their weight.
Their fourth album was released the same year. People were amazed by their speed; the album was named “That I Like”. A video was released for the single “That I Like”. This album, like others, was very successful. They made their way into the American Billboards and also a tour around the United States of America.
Yet another album was released in 1995. This was their fifth album which was named “World of Love”. The album was dedicated to Pepe Elizond’s daughter. His wife was still pregnant with her, but Pepe wanted to give her birthday present; before her birthday. He also included a video, with songs such as “Why Not”, “Swindler’s Destination”, “Remember to me” and many more.
The band made a habit of releasing albums yearly, and one might say that the frequent release of music might make them sound the same, but Pesado proved them wrong. “I’m Gonna Love” was released in 1996 with “Poem”, “Give Me”, “My Other Half” and many others.
They suffered a setback in 1997 when Rodolfo Guajardo left the band, but they managed to release another album “At the Top of the Sky” with the newest member, Antonio Small. “Let Me Love You”, “And You, Who Would You Do” was included in the album. This album, like all others was a major success. Videos were also released and in one of them, the members can be seen playing baseball. Beto in 2013 was honored for “My First Love”. They continue to release albums and tour bringing their music live for their fans. If you want to have this experience get The Pesado tickets now.
