Ramón Ayala Y Sus Bravos Del Norte

Spotlight 29 Casino is proud to present Ramón Ayala Y Sus Bravos Del Norte on Saturday, September 15th at 8 p.m. in the Spotlight Showroom!

Affectionately known as the "King of the Accordion," Ayala is a best-selling Mexican musician and composer, having recorded over 100 albums and earning four Grammy Awards throughout a career that has spanned five decades. A true legend of Norteño music, Ayala was given his first accordion at the age of 5 and has gone on to become one of the most beloved artists of his genre on both sides of the border.   

Ayala formed Relampagos del Norte – the precursor to Los Bravos del Norte – with fellow musician Cornelio Reyna in 1963. The group's eponymous debut album featured the hit single "Ya No Llores." Following Reyna's passing in 1997, the group changed its name and embarked on a prolific recording and touring schedule, often issuing multiple albums per year featuring a wide range of love songs, rancheras, corridos and dance in the classic Norteño style.
