Rivera’s father, Pedro Rivera, played a key role in the advancement of his son’s professional career in the music industry. Pedro Rivera was the founding owner and operator of the recording label and studio Cintas Acuario.

Wanting to give Lupillo a hands-on business experience, Rivera hired his son to work at the studio when a contracted singer failed to show up for a recording session.

At the start of his singing career, Lupillo was known as “El Torito” Lupillo Rivera and later, once becoming more famous, was referred to by his fans as El Toro del Corrido.

He adapted this nickname by his uncle who was a professional boxer known in Mexico as El Toro Rivera. By 1999, Rivera had signed with the Son Discos recording label and began to sing using his own name: Lupillo Rivera.

While with the Son Discos label, Rivera’s popularity began to grow and in 2002, he was awarded three Lo Nuestro Awards for Regional Mexican Male Artist of the Year, Banda Artist of the Year and Regional Mexican Album of the Year for Despreciado.

In 2010, Rivera won his first Grammy award for his album Tu Esclavo y Amo.
Tickets for the Chumash Casino show are $25, $35 and $45. Tickets for all events are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Indulge or online at www.chumashcasino.com.

The Chumash Casino Resort is an age 21-and-older venue.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
