Jr. Aldaco and the Midwest Allstars, a Tejano group founded in Lansing, Michigan, currently helmed by Carlos Aldaco and his father Jr. Aldaco, have released the latest single from their upcoming debut album.
In the 1960s, Juve Aldaco began the family band known as “Grupo Aldaco” that continued until 2010 when the family band was renamed to its current brand by Carlos Aldaco in 2018. Carlos continues the musical legacy of his grandfather, Juve, who sacrificed blood, sweat, and tears to get the band recognition while taking pride in their heritage, struggles, and triumphs of the musical journey.
The current group has been working hard in the studio on their highly-anticipated debut album 3rd Generation and just-released second single “Nomas Contigo.” The song expresses passion and tells the story of a well-known love once held onto, now departed and only reminiscing and craving for her to return to console his pain, staying hopeful that it would be similar to before.
“I feel as if it’s going to be a wonderful song for the fans to dance too.” Carlos Aldaco told Tejano Nation.
The successful single is getting tremendous radio play and has fans excited and waiting for more songs to come to reminisce over and relate to.
“If everyone enjoys it we’re doing our part as musicians,” Carlos added.
The album 3rd Generation will contain different styles of music such as Rancheras, Cumbias, and Merengue, all originals written by Juve Aldaco and Ernie Aldaco, uncle of Carlos Aldaco, and songwriter for the group until his recent passing. Daniel Aldaco is the mastermind behind all the group’s hits as producer and music arranger while lending his musical talents to another Midwest-based group Tejano Sound Band.
“We as a band thank my uncle Danny Aldaco for being the master mind behind all our hits and being our producer, music arranger and so much more. None of this would be possible without him.” Carlos told Tejano Nation.
“We would also like to add a big thank you to our promotion team Leona Promotions (Laura Saenz) for all of her hard work and dedication to the band. It is greatly appreciated.” Carlos added.
“My main goal for an album is to make sure we are doing songs that will get people up dancing and for each song to be catchy and mean something. Carlos Aldaco told Tejano Nation. “When my uncle would write a song it always had meaning to it. It’s like he was telling his life story through his music and that’s one thing we will carry on.”
After their album is finished and released, the group plans to go on tour and play their music for their fans proudly representing the history and development of the band over the years.
