Founded in 1978, Mariachi Real De San Diego has established itself as a leader in its genre under the direction of its founder and leader, Pedro Gonzalez. In the early years we played at the Del Mar fair and had the pleasure of meeting several celebrities as they came to San Diego.

Our Mariachi group has even appeared in various movies including “Top Dog“, starring Chuck Norris, “Deadly Desire” starring Jack Scalia, the TV Mini Series “Space” with James Garner, and “La Migra” released in 2014, as well as television commercials for the Del Mar Racing Season.

Mariachi Real has also performed for the Republican National Convention, two Super Bowls, the World Series, the All-Star Game and countless festivals and special events for international corporations and dignitaries. We love what we do and playing Mariachi in San Diego has been a joy.

Mariachi San Diego Records Mariachi Classics

Mariachi Real de San Diego also recorded three professional CD’s for Mardi Gras Recording Studio from New Orleans which are “Ultimate Mariachi”, “Mariachi Classics” and “Best of Mariachi Instrumentals” available on iTunes, Amazon and now Spotify.

We love to play and enjoyed creating these albums very much, but our heart and soul remains in live performances.

The Most Professional Mariachis in San Diego

We play several events every year, sometimes we even have multiple bands at the same event so we can perform all over in a large venue. We are happy to now offer our 1 million dollar liability insurance for events (as needed). We know how important that is for our major venue clients and we are happy to provide it.

Professionalism, dedication, and loyalty to the century old traditions of the music and culture of Mexico continue to drive this group to new heights.
