MENORES / Bio

Breaking out into the local rock scene in 2006 and now performing their songs in both English and Spanish with a genre of music different to what mainstream radio was offering the average listener, the band was in a constant struggle to find venues to play and opportunities were limited, but to be taken seriously was always a goal they achieved after playing their first song of the night. Most people when looking at a picture of Menores think the girl is the singer, but what a surprise they get when they find out she's actually the drummer. Normangelica the chick from el D.F. Mexico started playing drums her freshmen year in High School which was where she met guitarist Salvador and lead singer Javi. Chris Dau would come in and complete the band with bass in 2012. Having been top 5 finalist in both Burger King's Tu Ciudad tu Musica and Sprint Battle of the Bands, Menores were more than ready for a challenge. In 2008 they were the only Spanish Rock band to play the Amplify Music Conference and recently the only band representing latin rock in the Emergenza Music Festival, by this time they had recorded and produced their first album "Muere la Ilusion", rocked out shows all over the west coast from Las Vegas (Amplify) (Beauty Bar), Reno, San Fransisco (Carnaval), Los Angeles (Westchester)(Fiesta Broadway), Hollywood (Knitting Factory) (The Roxy), San Diego (Sevilla) and Tijuana Mex. (Playas de Tijuana) and it’s sorroundings. "Muere la Ilusion" has gotten great reviews from its listeners. Combining different rock genres and giving their pop/rock product an alternative twist. Their first single and title track has already hit position 3 nationwide in the Latin Alternative Charts. They have also released three music videos from their album which can be found on Youtube "MenoresRock".

Entrando a la escena del rock en español con un sonido distinto en el año 2006, la banda Menores luchaban en encotrar lugares donde tocar, aun asi ser tomados en serio era una de las metas que lograban al terminar de tocar la primera cancion de la noche. Que sorpresa se lleva el publico cuando se dan cuenta que "la baterista" es Norma Gonzalez, la chica del D.F. Mexico aprendio a tocar la bateria en su primer año de la prepa, en cual tiempo conocio a el guitarrista Salvador y el cantante Javi. Vince Garate completo el grupo con el bajo en el 2007. Llegando a ser parte de los top 5 finalistas en ambas batalla de bandas Burger King Tu Ciudad Tu Musica y Sprint Battle of the Bands , Menores estaban mas que listos para el proximo desafio. En el año 2008 fueron la unica banda de rock en español invitada a tocar en el festival de musica Amplify y mas reciente la unica banda representando el rock latino en el festival de musica Emergenza. Para este tiempo ya habian grabado y producido su primer disco completo "Muere la Ilusion", llevando asi su musica conquistando ecenarios por la costa oeste desde Las Vegas (Amplify) (Beauty Bar), Reno, San Fransisco (Carnaval), Los Angeles (Key Club)(Fiesta Broadway), Hollywood (Knitting Factory) (The Roxy), San Diego (Sevilla) hasta Tijuana Mex. (Playas de Tijuana), y sus alrededores. El disco “Muere la ilusion” a recibido una reaccion positiva del publico. Combinando diffrente generos de rock y dando asi a su producto pop/rock un toque alternativo cada cancion en el disco es distinta a la anterior. El primer sencillo titulado igual al disco Muere La Ilusion llego hasta la posicion 3 a nivel nacional en los Latin Alternative Charts. Si es como dicen, que buenas cosas le esperan a los que tienen paciencia, y tanto esfuerzo es indicacion de un futuro exitoso, entonces quendence atentos con esta banda que tiene una baterista poco probable y un sonido inesperado. En el 2010 Menores estaran promoviendo su disco, asi que corran la voz que los MENORES han llegado
