Banda Machos to Perform in the Event Center at Rhythm City Casino


Davenport, IA – Technobanda band Banda Machos is set to perform music in the Event Center on Saturday, March 4, 2023 at 8 PM. Tickets are $25 (or $300 for a table of 10) plus applicable online/phone ticketing fee (this fee is waived when tickets are purchased at The Market Gift Shop inside Rhythm City Casino Resort). All ages are welcome to attend. Tickets in the ADA section are for patrons with mobility disabilities and up to three companions. If companion seating is not available because the ADA section is sold out, Rhythm City Casino Resort will offer other seats as close as possible to the accessible seat, if available, at the purchase price of the original section.

When they came together in the Mexican state of Jalisco in 1990, the 13 original members of Banda Machos could never have imagined how popular — and how controversial — they would become. Brash, infectious, and eventually inescapable, Banda Machos updated and modernized the traditional Sinaloan banda style. They electrified and augmented the genre’s big, brassy sound with amplified instruments, flashy keyboard flourishes, and their longtime battle cry: “Arre Macho!”

To the dismay of their older rivals (who considered them only a passing fad), Banda Machos was crowned “La Reina de las Bandas” — Bandas Queen — at the 1993 Viva México festival in Chicago. The group continued to fill stadiums throughout the 1990s and into the next millennium, appealing especially to young Mexican audiences in the United States eager to have a taste of home that they could dance to.

Banda Machos’ repertoire, which includes both romantic material and witty lyrics spiced with double entendres (such as “El Profesor” and “La Manguera”), was written by some of Mexico’s greatest veteran songwriters — including Joan Sebastian and José Alfredo Jiménez, as well as younger talents like Iván Díaz and Horacio Ortíz. They have recorded more than 20 albums and performed in Mexico and nearly every state in the U.S.
