DeAnda spoke about the decision to move on from Los Chamacos after over 30 years together with many successful albums and hit songs.

“We gave it a heck of a run and so many years,” DeAnda said. “We’ve parted our ways, trying to keep it professional and you know things happen for a reason and sometimes you try to do as much as you can, but when you need to move on or make a change that’s the biggest decision that you’re gonna make.”

The break up was a surprise to many fans.

“A lot of ’em, of course, were ‘Ah, I can’t believe it, why would you do this and do that’, and it’s easy to say stick around whatever job you have or wherever you were in the past,” he added. “But when you want to move on and you think it’s time for the right choice or to do something better, you gotta take that risk. You gotta take that chance.”

Los Chamacos have also moved on and began performing with guest vocalists and accordionists.
