The special performance will take place at the San Saba North Budweiser Stage at 6:30 p.m. Merchandise goes on sale at noon.
The Chris Perez Band is a Latin Rock band infused with English and Spanish grooves. The band won a Grammy Award for Best Latin Rock/Alternative Album for their album Resurrection in 1999. In this album, Pérez dedicated the song, “Best I Can”, to his wife, Selena.
Chris Pérez (born August 14, 1969) is a Mexican American guitarist. Pérez was the lead guitarist for his wife Selena’s band Selena y Los Dinos. Pérez met Selena in 1988. Two years later, the Quintanilla family hired him to play in Selena’s band and the pair fell in love. He and Selena were married on April 2, 1992 in Nueces County, Texas, when she was 20 and he was 22.
After the Chris Pérez Band went on hiatus, Pérez joined A.B. Quintanilla’s music group, Los Kumbia Kings, in 2003. Los Dinos performed together at the Selena ¡VIVE! tribute concert on April 7, 2005. In the summer of 2006, A.B. Quintanilla started a new band called Kumbia All Starz, with Pérez as their lead guitarist.
Deeply connected to their Hispanic heritage but loving the vibe of American Rock the Chris Perez Band delivers a sound infused with swaggering guitar riffs, stadium-sized hooks, and captivating lyrics. This year will see the band make a comeback with the re-release of their Grammy-winning album Resurrection via Hollywood Records, coupled with multi shows scheduled for Spring and Summer.
