The three distinguished performers of Trio Chapala will fittingly start off the fiesta with a medley of romantic mariachi tunes to set the mood.
Eric Schwartz, the "Master of Funnies," is a popular standup comedian who touts himself as being one-quarter Mexican because of his mother's remarriage, when he was young, to a successful Mexican jazz musician who helped raise and influence him. His appearances include the Tonight show, Showtime, Comics Unleashed, and BET, and his refreshing cross-cultural (Anglo y Latino) bilingual humor makes him an ideal host when folks of different cultural backgrounds get together to have an enjoyable time.
Since its founding in 1981, the critically acclaimed Mariachi Sol de Mexico de Jose Hernandez, which is well-recognized for having performed in some of the most prestigious concert arenas around the world, has been nominated for nine Grammy Awards. Its bandleader, Jose Hernandez, an internationally recognized musician, composer and educator, has recorded with Selena, Vicente Fernandez, Luis Miguel, Bryan Adams, and the Beach Boys.
A comedian, actor, and writer, Jesus Trejo is one of the hottest young standup talents on the comedy scene today.

Mariachi Reyna de Los Angeles, an all-female ensemble under the musical direction of Jose Hernandez, is well-renowned on both sides of the US/Mexico border for its accurate and polished presentations of traditional mariachi music as the songs were originally written to be performed.

Both Tito's are graced with a kind and giving philosophy.
