The Best Mariachi Bands of All Time

Known for their snazzy charro uniforms and seemingly endless number of bandmembers, the best Mariachi bands are some of the most well known musicians in Mexico. Mariachi bands, once you look past their outfits, are actually Mexican folk musicians. Originally called Mariachi bands due to their presence at weddings, the best Mariachi bands actually don't have a single traditional lead singer. Instead, they rely the expertise of their many musicians. When you think of traditional Mexican music, generally Mariachi bands are the first to come to mind.

So, what are the best Mariachi bands? If you're thinking Mariachi, some of the first names to come to mind are Vicente Fernandez, Jose Alfredo Jimenez, Rocio Durcal and Pepe Aguilar.
