Los Tigre Del Norte are quintessential norteño music.
The band started in the 1960s when its member were still teenagers and the group continues to be a vital.
In celebration of National Hispanic heritage month, the band released “Los Tigres del Norte at Folsom Prison,” an album and Netflix special recorded live at the California prison. It’s the first time a band has been allowed to perform at the Folsom since Johnny Cash.
Also, in celebration of the month, the band headlines MicheFest on Saturday night at Rawhide Ballpark in Visalia.
The day-long music festival also includes performances from Banda Los Sebastianes, La Original Banda El Limon Del Salvador Lizarraga, Los Malandrines, Alejandra Rojas, Zenaido Aleman, Los de la Cuadr, La Marcha and Macondo.
There will also be food, a Michelada competition (to honor the name) and other art and cultural expositions.
