It was a spectacular Sunday night at the Toyota arena in Ontario,CA. The popular Mexican banda, Banda MS which was founded in 2003 in Mazatlán, Sinaloa put on an amazing show. Fifteen minutes before the show begun, concert staffs lifted a white giant victorian style curtain to cover Banda MS before their grand entrance. As the count down started, almost everyone raced to the restrooms or to get another beer can before settling in their seats. One minute left before the show and everyone had their cell phones out, on video mode screaming and whistling at the top of their lungs. Finally the curtains dropped and fire works bursted in the air, singers Alan Manuel Ramírez Salcido and Oswaldo Silvas Carreón along with 15 other band member who played instruments appeared on stage with great enthusiasm. They sang many hit songs such as “Mi Hermosa Experiencia, "A Lo Mejor" and “Por Siempre Mi Amor”.
In addition songs like "Por Mi No Te Detengas," "El Color de Tus Ojos” made the crowd jump on their feet for a wave of danceable quality music, men grabbing their women by the hand and up on their feet dancing like there was no tomorrow. One of the highlights of the night was when they performed their hit song "El Mechon" and were joined onstage by an energetic little girl, who won the hearts on the crowd by the way she was dancing.
Another memorable moment was they performed a romantic ballad melody of "Quien Pierde Mas” which had many women hold tight to their significant other. With so many hit songs under their belts it’s no question Banda MS is here to stay for a very long time. There is perhaps no group that has been more successful at popularizing traditional, brass-based Mexican Banda music than Banda MS. There’s only one reason people buy tickets to see Banda MS, and that’s to have a really great time.
