Biography

Chris Perez band is a Grammy winning trio around John Garza, Joe Ojeda and Chris Pérez. In 1999, Resurrection, the first album recorded by Pérez’s newly created band, won a Grammy award in the category of Alternative Latin Rock. Now, after signing with a new record label, Univision Music, the group is launching its second album, Chris Pérez Band, Una Noche Mas, with more ballads and cumbias, and sung mostly in Spanish. “This is a lot different,” he says. “This is more of a reflection of where we came from and what’s going on in Texas and the type of music that you now hear. ” A gifted musician, Chris Pérez grew up in urban San Antonio, learning to read music charts as a horn player in junior high school. “My mom and my dad were also in the school marching band when they were young. I think I take after her; she’s the one who signed me up at my school and she wanted for me to play the French horn, which I found really groovy.” It was later, with his guitar, however, that young Pérez discovered a new and incredible way to communicate his thoughts and emotions.

His increasing prowess on the instrument drew him into the glossy world of pop / Tejano, landing a gig as sideman with Selena y los Dinos, and spending six years with that extremely successful band. Venturing out into the music scene, he crossed paths with a charismatic young vocalist named John Garza. The pair connected and Chris realized he’d found someone with whom he could share his musical vision. “I always wanted to be part of a group.
