Jaguares Tickets for Sale
More than 20 years have passed since Caifanes started playing in the streets of Mexico City. They helped bring worldwide attention to Mexican rock and rock en Español. With every album, Hernandez puts political commentary and social consciousness at the front of the band's musical vision. He says they have to continue to be confrontational and countercultural; also that keeping their original spirit comes naturally to them. They most recently toured with Morrissey, and they've had a successful career. They played in Texas' South Padre International Music Festival in 2007. Currently, the Jaguares' lineup consists of bassist Marco Renteria, percussionist Leonardo Munoz and guitarist Cesar "Vampiro" Lopez. Jaguares has found poetry in darkness, strength in musical mystery and in Mexican tradition. They're Mexican alternative rock's most durable gods. They play with the exact same passion and dedication for fans in Mexico City's Zócalo, a small club in Paris, a cultural event in Oaxaca or the Universal Amphitheater. One thing's for sure, though, they can and will sell out a venue without having a new single on the radio or a new record on shelves.

Jaguares, which is Jaguars in English, is a Mexican rock en Español band lead by former Caifanes lead singer Saul Hernandez. Caifanes broke up in 1995 due to a legal dispute that forced Hernandez to reform the band under a different name. This allowed the band to focus on their commemoration of ancient Aztec and Mayan religious symbolism. The band got their name from when lead singer Hernandez had a dream of singing in a jaguar's mouth. He started the band with former Caifanes co-member Alfonso Andre on drums; the other members are: two long time friends, Federico Fong on bass guitar and Jose Manuel Aguilera on lead guitar. Originally set up as a "workshop," the core members Hernandez and Andre worked with different musicians.
