A few more words to add...


Welcome to our world, where traditional Mariachi music fused with Tejano music creates a unique sound and sparkling entertainment. This is what Shorty and The Corvettes, now Mariachi Corbetas bring to the people of Austin Texas and to their performances.  Founded by an Austin Music Legend Guadalupe "Lupe" Ortiz (a.k.a. "Shorty") who continues to rise with his family along side in the music scene.

A diverse mix of talents and experience along with a strong educational background provide the upward movement for this Austin Texas based group of musicians.  Old school talent and experience mixed with the new school talent and experience provide Mariachi Corbetas with the perfect balance needed to put smiles where ever they may perform.  Pretty much for what ever idea of a party or gathering you may want to have or host, Mariachi Corbetas will be honored to perform for you.

These guys bring it with them; the charisma, rhythm, style and passion for music and entertainment.  Having traveled as far as Louisiana, Mississippi and other out of town and state performances, they provide all their knowledge of music to make any occasion a treasure to remember.  This style and blend of rhythms will surely get you going with enjoyment sooner or later.

Whether you need a trio or a larger group for a performance, Mariachi Corbetas will deliver a well-played out repertoire of music. From the old to the new and yes... even a few of some English cover songs, this Mariachi band is a group of talented and educated musicians ready for any scene to excel their performances.
