What is Cumbiabilly?
Established in 2009 by brothers and longtime musical partners, Aaron and Al Martinez, Moonlight Trio captures the sound and essence of Southern California by playing a mix of rockabilly, old school rock & roll, cumbia, Tex-Mex, and traditional Mexican music performed with a rockabilly twist. The Martinez Brothers have been playing this unique blend of musical styles for decades and created a new genre widely known as Cumbiabilly®. With Aaron Martinez on drums, Al Martinez on guitar, and fellow L.A. music scene veteran Tony Red-Horse on upright bass, all three members of the group trade off on lead vocals and all lend a voice to rich harmonies, while keeping the music upbeat and solid. Moonlight Trio’s infectious grooves attract fans of all ages and will get you up and moving!
