Jesse Flores Y Eskandalo have a smooth Tejano sound mixed with a little old school and country.

On September 3, the band performed at the annual Lordsburg Tejano Fiesta in Lordsburg, New Mexico, singing some old school and Tejano, the crowd welcomed the music and packed the dance floor.

Eskandalo consists of Guillermo Garcia (Accordionist, secondary vocals), Jerry Vasquez (Bass), Rene Espinoza (Drums) and Javier Guerra (Electric Guitar) .

In 2013, the band released their debut album Vuelve A Mi, composed by Lucky Joe. Jesse Flores Y Eskandalo are scheduled to release their sophomore album before Christmas 2016.

In 1996, Tejano Superstar Emilio Navaira had an opening for a keyboard player and Flores fit the spot. Touring with Emilio all over the world, Jesse learned about music and different cultures, plus made many memories he will always cherish.
