Mariachi Band Tucson Arizona
Mariachi Alegre is a local group in Tucson Arizona composed of four musicians who play mariachi music. This is the simple explanation of who we are but in reality we are of many mariachi bands and groups located in Tucson. What distinguishes our group or band is that we taught most of the mariachi musicians here in Tucson over the last 30 years. George Bejarano and other members of Mariachi Alegre have taught Mariachi bands and groups mariachi music for over twenty years. George Bejarano has personally taught the mariachi band “Los Changuitos Feos” 8-9 years.
George Bejarano formed this group in 2010 from the original Mariachi Internacional America de Gilberto Velez. The members of Mariachi Alegre originally came from this aforementioned group. Mariachi Internacional America operated their venue “El Mariachi Restaurant” located in Tucson from 1985 -2002. It is at this restaurant where we learned invaluable experience in how to play for distinct clientele. Over the years, 40 year plus, we have played for our own restaurant, weddings, masses, funerals, memorials, quinceneras 15th debuts, memorials, private and public inaugurations, etc…
Mariachi Alegre members have played all over United States including some big festivals like the Milwaukee Summerfest, Indianapolis Festival and internationally in the Scotland Edinburgh Music Festival.
We can travel within the United States with ease and can travel outside of US with advance notice. We are very professional and punctual.
WE LOVE TO PLAY MARIACHI MUSIC!!! WE ARE VERY CONFIDENT THAT YOU WILL BE VERY SATISFIED WITH OUR PERFORMANCE.

Mariachi Alegre is well versed in song selections that pertain to masses for quinceneras, weddings, funeral and wakes.
Most masses follow a set routine which involves these events:
- Acclamation Memorial-Christ has died…
- Grand Amen before taking of the wine
- Our Father
- Passing of Peace
- Flowers to Virgin (if applicable)
- Final blessing and Exit
We have several songs per mass events. We have played masses for over 40 years here in Tucson and southern AZ. We have a good rapport with all priests in the area. We discuss song selection before masses while the priest discusses with us which events he will bypass without music. We invariably meet with priest to acquire this knowledge before commencement of mass.
Most of us in the group started our music careers playing in the church learning religious music and the corresponding events these songs pertain to.
We bring the vast amount of experience and knowledge to our job contracts where we practice music professionalism: punctuality, extensive music knowledge and great rapport with our audience.
