Los Chamacos released an official statement on Sunday about the breakup with former frontman Jaime DeAnda. The group parted ways in December.

The four remaining members of the band have decided to “continue as Los Chamacos without Jaime,” according to the statement.

“Several attempts were made to come to an agreement to keep the band together, but nothing was resolved,” says the statement. “Jaime chose to pursue a ‘solo’ career without Los Chamacos. With that being said, it is time for us as a band to continue our passion and commitment to making music for you, the fans.”

Los Chamacos, which include current members Roel Joslin, Edward “Chato” Ordonez, Ruben Mendoza, and Gilbert Fierros Jr, have been fulfilling performance contracts since the breakup with guest vocalists and accordionists.

“We would like to thank Albert Canales (Un Nuevo Oro) and David Gonzalez (El Trono) for filling in while this matter was being resolved,” according to the statement.

The statement also cleared up the confusion on the use of Los Chamacos name and music.

“In December 2015, Roel acquired ‘Jaime Y Los Chamacos’ from Jaime,” according to the statement. “Since then, Roel (JYLC) legally holds all rights that are associated with this entity.”

Jaime Y Los Chamacos have been entertaining fans with their high-energy, signature sound since 1982 and released many successful albums and classic hits including “Yolanda,” “Mi Musica Favorita,” and many more. The band has received multiple Grammy and Latin Grammy nominations and was inducted into the Tejano R.O.O.T.S. Hall of Fame in 2011.

“We would like to thank Jaime for all the years we shared the stage together,” said the statement. “The memories will never be forgotten.”
