Pesado and Hermanos Vega Jr. to Perform at Chumash Casino Resort

Credited with exposing a new generation of fans to norteño music, the platinum-selling group Pesado will be joined by up-and-coming artists Hermanos Vega Jr. for a special night at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 24.

Tickets are $35, $45 and $55.

Also known as Grupo Pesado, the norteño group was founded by frontman/accordionist Beto Zapata and Pepe Elizondo in 1993 in Nueva Leon, Mexico. They debuted with the album Ayudame a Olvidar and followed with successful albums such as Llego el Amor, Eso Me Gusta and Todo Tuyo, among others.

The group’s 2012 release, Mi Promesa, peaked at No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Latin Album chart, and the title track was a huge hit for the band, reaching the Top 5 on charts in both Mexico and the United States.

Pesado is presently touring to support a new album, Por Ti, which is available on iTunes and celebrates the band’s 20th anniversary in the music business. The album reached No. 2 on the Regional Mexican Albums chart and No. 5 on the Top Latin Albums chart.

Hermanos Vega Jr. is composed of two young musicians — Gabriel Sergio Vega and Freddy Vega Jr. — who are on the rise and capturing the hearts of Mexican music fans. They are the talented sons of Freddy Vega Sr., a member of the famous Los Hermanos Vega.

The duo’s most popular song, “Me Gustabas,” reached Billboard’s Regional Mexican Songs chart, and they’re currently promoting their new single, “Por Educacion.”

Located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, the Chumash Casino Resort is an age 18-or-older venue. Tickets for all events are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Chumash or online by clicking here.

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.
