A Legend To Norteno Music

        "Los Invasores de Nuevo Leon" is a norteno band, wherein the accordionist, Javier Rios initiated in 1978, in Monterrey, N.L., Mexico, where the accordion music is inseparable from the Noteno tradition. However the group didn't started playing professionally until 1980 when they obtained the vocalist and acoustic guitarist, Lalo Mora. The career of the Invaders, at the beginning was harsh. In an interview with Mora he mentioned, "At the beginning the group had financial problems, but with God's blessed we had overcome all those situations". Where in 1981 a representative name Servando Cano noticed their talent and started representing the group. In 1982 they recorded one of their greatest hits, which gave them first Gold Disc. which include songs like "Mi Casa Nueva", a son that until the date receives cheers and applauses from the audience. But the hits don't end there, "Aguanta Corazon", "Que La Dejen Ir Al Baile Sola", "Laurita Garza", and "Para Ti Mi Amor", "Te Adorare" and many, many more that were great hits, and continue being classic. Therefore they realized that the most valuable recognition they can receive is not the awards instead without the doubt, the audience love and applauses.
        In 1993, Mora decides to leave the group; therefore The Invaders were desperately looking for a new vocalist. Isais Lucero took Lalo's place, which had a similar voice to the previous vocalist. This definitely didn't affect the group, the hits continue with Lucero, whit first place hits like: "Me Rindo", Esta Noche Tu Vendras", and "Playa Sola" which received a Gold Disc for more that 100 million copies sold. However Lucero's career with The Invaders was short, since he also decided to be on his own, leaving the group on 1997.
        In 1997 Rios is in the same situation, he is anxious to find a new vocalist, therefore he decides to give two guys that work for him the opportunity of their lives. They work for the group carrying the groups' equipment, Rolando Marroquin (vocalist) and Rigo Marroquin (Acoustic Guitar) who integrated the group in May 23, 1997. This was a dramatic changed for The Invaders, because now they are five instead of four"¦Rios also decides to change the style of music. Known for having a masculine voice like Mora and playing in their albums most of them Rancheras, Boleros, and Corridos, the group now also concentrates on playing Cumbias, that are a great hit these days in the Spanish Community. Rios leaves behind the 2nd voice to be the 1st in many of the new albums, that had brought a great hit. His greatest hit was the song titled "A Mi Que Me Quedo", this song had an surprising hit, it has maintained 1st place of popularity in all the radio stations in Monterrey, N.L., Mexico during five consecutive months and was cataloged for song of the year. Also with this song they received Double Gold Disc in the United States. This song re-invented The Invaders of before to the New Invaders.
        In 1999 another great hit with "De Vida O Muerte" which they started promotion in the United States. Which this new album they overcome the category of Double Platinum Disc for more than 300,000 albums sold, so popular with songs like "Se Acabo", "To Ya Se Fue", For recognition of their art, the audience names them "The idols of the Norteno Music".
        In 2000, For a Celebration of their 20th Anniversary of their trajectory they recorded for their first time a "Boleros" album, promotion the song "Amor Ilegal", who the composer is Rios, the accordionist, this song occupied for more than two months the first place of popularity in radio, rapidly obtaining a Gold Disc for their national sales of 75,000 copies.
        Continuing their Celebration the next album released "Tiempo al Tiempo" includes cumbias like "No Llorare" in which the vocalist is Rios and Rancheras like "Las Sigues Dando", in which the vocalist is Marroquin. They both are the voice of the group.
        Lastly in 2001, their album 36 "Hasta El Final" which they decide to continue the tradition of the old days recording "Moneda Sin Valor", a song which includes only the acoustic guitar, the accordion and tarola, no battery whatsoever. They did this song in tribute to the initiative of the Norteno Music. With 24 years of career they have achieved many accomplishments and have received many awards for their talent, but most important they have touched our hearts with their songs. Giving them the recognition of being the best Norteno Group.
        The Norteno Music sustains a variety of styles and forms of interpretation
Within the category The Invaders are a definitive Norteno band, but now they are more fresh, juvenile and more innovators (modern). Including in their album, Rancheras, Cumbias, Boleros, Vallenatas, and Romantic Baladadas, which all of you have heard the vary styles of style changes.
        The reason I choose The Invaders is because I love Norteno Music and I believed they are a great band, which have work hard to be where they are (the top). I also enjoy listening to their foot-tapping hip-shacking rhythm, which keeps me dancing to their songs. Their Album features the unique sound of Norteno Music with a Texas-added flavor that it sure hits not only the sole of my feet but the twist in my shake. They keep me dancing, singing and partying all night long.
