Moonlight Trio is a Mexican-American band based out of Los Angeles who play a mix of roots rock, rockabilly, cumbia, and traditional Mexican music performed with a rockabilly twist. As originators of this unique blend of musical styles called “Cumbiabilly”, Moonlight Trio captures the sound and essence of Southern California, while bridging the gap between old school rock & roll and traditional Mexican music. Founded in 2000 as Moonlight Cruisers, Moonlight Trio is comprised of Tony “T-Mac” Macias on upright bass and brothers Aaron & Al Martinez on drums and guitar, respectively. All three members of the group are veterans of the LA music scene, all trade off on lead vocals, and all lend a voice to some rich harmonies, all the while keeping the music moving, yet solid. A self-titled E.P. was released in early 2010 and a full-length CD, “Cumbiabilly Volume 1″ will be released in June 2011 under FKO Records. This CD will move your soul and feet alike with such original tracks as the rockin’ opening tune, “You’re The One For Me” and the lively, playful cumbia, “El Chango”. Moonlight Trio frequently tours Northern and Southern California, along with the Southwestern United States and European tours to such countries as Spain, France, Belgium and Netherlands. No matter if it’s a small pub, huge festival, wedding or county fair, Moonlight Trio will get you up and moving! So grab your best dance partner, a cold cerveza and get ready for a fiesta, Moonlight Trio style!
