With the great pandemic quarantine of 2020 crippling the live music industry, COR decided to become "UNPLUGGED" in order to offer personal/private and outdoor shows by becoming portable. Mainly mimicking the role of a traditional Mariachi band, COR-U became an acoustic version of the thrilling stage show but still offers excitement and fun by offering BOTH Mariachi versions of Classic Rock, Latin Rock, along with traditional Mariachi music. It is a way to see LIVE MUSIC while venues wait to open up by basically bringing it home!
The band mixes their unique style with hits from artists such as Jimmy Hendrix, The Eagles, Queen, Pink Floyd, Journey, Guns N Roses, Ritchie Valens to Rammstein, and many more. Fronted by singer Ricky Rodd and trumpeter Mavero Durán (both former front men of the band Metalachoooo), this ALL STAR group consists of musicians that have toured and performed with with artists such as Santana, Queensryche, Violin on Fire, Alejandro Fernandez, Mariachi Divas, Paulina Rubio, and more. Contact COR-U if you would like the band to perform for your private/public outdoor party, birthday, wedding, any occasion! Virtual serenades through LIVESTREAM are also available.
Charros of Rock also has ties to Fresno, CA as 3 members of the band are Fresno natives.
