There are at least three bands named Hacienda.

1) House/Lounge Band from Germany
Jürgen Kadel & Marcus Finger of Hacienda both hailed from the 1990s progressive house scene around Frankfurt and met at a party back in 1993. One year later they founded Hacienda. Hacienda’s debut album “Sunday Afternoons” on Harthouse in 1996 impressed a considerable number of people and received favorable reviews in Germany as well as in the UK and in the US. In 1998 the found a new home at INFRACom! where they released „Narrowed Eyes“ the same year anticipating the Nu-Jazz phenomenen years before ist was labeled as such. 2000 followed „Third Door Left“ including „Sabor“ which entered the charts in Italy and Turkey for weeks. „Third door left“ was licensed to Japan, where Hacienda was touring successfully. During their years with INFRACom! the career of Hacienda boomed and their tracks appeared on numerous compilations. They already had became an internationally renowned act, when they changed for Ministry Of Sound in 2003, where they released their next two albums

If you ask Hacienda how they would describe their style they would say something like this. “Take a little bit of Bossa, Dub, Latin, Acid Jazz, Salsa, Brasil and may be some Funk elements, then add the specific Hacienda Flava and you got our style. Hacienda Style!

2) Rock Band rom San Antonio, Texas
The band has always been a family affair with cousins Abraham Villanueva and Dante Schwebel planting the musical seeds that would become the Hacienda sound.
