LOS GARCIA BROS
Thirteen years ago on July 19, 2002, the Conjunto and Tejano Music World came to a standstill and be-felled by sadness as the news of the tragic death of legendary musician and singer Santiago “Jimmy” Garcia was announced.
Jimmy Garcia co-founded Los Garcia Brothers from Eagle Pass, Texas, formerly known as Los Clavelitos.
Although 13 years have passed, Jimmy is still remembered by thousands of fans, friends and his family for the beautiful person he was both on and off-stage. He was very humble and warm with everyone he met or touched.
His unique and strong style of accordion playing and vocals made him an international music icon, particularly among Conjunto and Tejano Music fans. His strong accordion and vocals propelled Los Garcia Brothers into the international music scene and fame among world music lovers and fans.
Santiago “Jimmy” Garcia, was born on August 28, 1974, in Eagle Pass, Texas and picked up music at an early age under the guidance and tutelage of his father, Joe “El Jefe” Garcia, and at the age of sixteen he formed Los Clavelitos de Jimmy Garcia, a family-based band with his brother, Joe “El Bro” Garcia, Jr., in 1990.
Jimmy and his brother Joe were accompanied by their father, Joe and Bajo Sexto Player Frank Rodriguez of Quemado, Texas for many years as they slowly ascended to the top of the Conjunto and Tejano music world.
Los Clavelitos emerged as a rising band with that unique Conjunto genre style to the delight of music fans and were later renamed Los Garcia Brothers, which until today carries the name in honor of Jimmy, as his brother Joey continues making the Garcia Brother’s name a legacy in the Tejano Conjunto music culture.
“Who will ever forget them, they were and continue to be part of our history. Up to now, you can’t help but relive memories of times passed that survive through the memories of their music. That is something that we will forever be grateful for. We must appreciate their dedication to making music that you to this very day find comfort in. Music that would make you forget about your problems even if it was for a few moments while you were seeing them perform live or hearing their music play through the radio. Who hasn’t ever just sang your heart out while listening to those vatos locos,” said a longtime fan.
Jimmy Garcia will forever be known as a master of music creating a unique sound, belting out electrifying polkas and cumbias that uniquely blended his accordion skills and saxophone playing together with a beautiful personality that would capture an audience while he performed.
The legacy that Jimmy has left behind can never be forgotten as he took an idea and created his opportunity of a lifetime and ran with it, for 11 straight years dedicating himself alongside his father and brother into cementing Los Garcia Brothers name amongst the top Tejano Conjunto elite.
Eleven years after beginning his musical career, Garcia and his band were awarded the 2001 Album of the Year Award in the conjunto category for Los Garcia de Jimmy Garcia at the Annual Tejano Music Awards and named the Most Promising Band. The following year, the Tejano Music Awards once again awarded Los Garcia Brothers with the conjunto album of the year award.
On July 19, 2002, Santiago “Jimmy” Garcia died at the age of 27 years young in a tragic one-car accident near La Pryor, Texas.
He was survived by his common-law wife, their son and daughter, and two daughters from a previous marriage.
13 years to the date Jimmy Garcia remains on people’s mind and hearts as he is often remembered as a modest, humble man that was brought up under the Hispanic culture and roots that live on through his musical songs and performances.
13 years after Jimmy’s passing his legacy and the Garcia Brothers name continues as his brother Joey “El Bro” Garcia, spearheads the group living, his and Jimmy’s dream on stage with musical performances in the United States as well as in Mexico as well as launching his own record label, El Bro Records.
Joey alongside his father, Joe, continue recording the very conjunto music that launched their dream many years ago, while they were an up and coming conjunto band out of Eagle Pass, Texas.
Jimmy’s dreams continue on, through the Garcia Brothers name and because they continue “making it conjunto carnal.”
DA KRAZY PIMPZ
On February 3, 2007 a new fusion of Tejano, Conjunto, and Cumbia Music
emerged as the now well known band “Da Krazy Pimpz” was born.
Founder Eddie Jimenez began the project by using his many years of
experience, ideas, and talent to "Pimp out La Onda" form something newer, crazier,. but
yet giving fans great danceable music to enjoy. The opportunity
came to be when Tejano Superstar Singer “Gary Hobbs” from the same
town of Eagle Pass, TX. signed Eddie to his own independent
record label “AMMX Records” to a 4 year contract. Gary along with his
son Gary Lee Hobbs have both guided and produced “Da Krazy Pimpz”
with their knowledge and years of experience in “la onda tejana”. Their
first album “El Pachuco Nuevo” presented the audience with their colorful
Pimp Suits which was never before seen in the Tejano Industry. The single
“Cumbia De Los Pimpz” which was written by Eddie himself went on to
open the doors for “Da Krazy Pimpz” to Mexico and several Tejano driven
States in the U.S. The song picked up airplay from Tejano and Regional/Mexican radio
stations everywhere and top stations like KXTN Tejano 107.5 in San Antonio, TX. And
Super Tejano 102 in McAllen, TX. To Top off a great year in 2008, “Da Krazy Pimpz” were
invited to perform the hit song “Cumbia De Los Pimpz”at the 2008 Tejano Music Awards
by President Frank Salazar, sporting their Zebra Pimp Suits the band performed along
with their friends from Eagle Pass, “The Latin Dancers” for a performance to remember.
The guys then received a call from a long time friend and promoter in Monterrey N.L. MX.
Mr. Lino Noe Yañez from “Tejano Music Productions” and took them on his wing on
several tours to San Luis Potosi, and Monterrey, pushing their music deep into the heart
of his Mexican Country with songs like “Demasiado Romantica”, and “Por Tu Amor”
Featuring Gary Hobbs from their second album entitled “Pimpin It!!” Da Krazy Pimpz have
toured the states of Texas, Florida, California, Arizona, Washington, Idaho,
Kansas, Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan. Mexico is also a strong hold of
the "Cumbia Tejana" style that was brought by Eddie implementing the Saxophone in his
style, harvesting several tours to Monterrey, Tampico, San Luis Potoso, and Puebla
Mexico. The Cumbia hit song "Bombo Y Maracas" has cemented Da Krazy Pimpz as not
only a Conjunto band but also a Hybrid Cumbia Band gaining already over 300,000
Views to date on Youtube!!
In 2014 Eddie Jimenez decided to endeavor into a new area of the music industry
launching “Bordertown Records” their new Independent
Record Label. Manufacturing big hits like "La Cachetona" and "Te Vez Buena"
which were released Nationwide in the US and Mexico under MONITOR LATINO, a well
known Regional Mexican Chart monitoring website and single distribution company, Da
Krazy Pimpz have become a household name across the US and Mexico.
Da Krazy Pimpz have cemented their “controversial” name as one of the top conjunto
bands in the industry today. In 2016 Da Krazy Pimpz were invited to perform at the Tejano
National Convention in Las Vegas Nevada, one of the biggest Tejano Shows in the US
with over 7,000 fans attending! The well known Tejano Music Awards have also invited
Da Krazy Pimpz to perform at the coveted award shows in 2015, 2016, and 2018. Da
Krazy Pimpz thank all the fans for the continued support throught the years and to
everyone who makes this project possible..
Puro Pimpin Style, Pimpin Conjunto!!
