Rodriguez is no stranger to the world of Conjunto music, as he began performing as an accordionist with Los Fantasmas Del Valle while still in his teens and remained with the group for almost two decades.
Rodriguez formed Los Cucuys in 2017, and within one short year, this Rio Grande City native became one of the most in-demand Conjunto artists on the circuit today, performing to sell-out crowds on a weekly basis.
In 2018, Rodriguez was among the first to sign with newly formed Harlingen, Texas-based record label CHR Records. President and producer Rick Garcia commented, “I’ve been working with Rodney for years since I also used to produce for Los Fantasmas. When Rodney stepped out on his own, I saw how the people were responding to his music. I had to make the call and talk to him personally. We were in the studio a few weeks later recording his first album.”
His latest single, “Si No Me Quieres,” is the title cut from the new album. It is receiving great airplay throughout the United States and plans are in the works for more tours in the future. Look for great things from this young but seasoned Conjunto performer.
