Grupo Montez De Durango Bio

El Grupo Montez de Durango is a duranguense band currently based in Chicago, USA. This group is well known in the United States and some states in Mexico like Baja California, Sonora, Sinaloa, Jalisco and Zacatecas. The band members came from Santiago Papasquiaro, Durango, Mexico. One of the hottest "Regional Mexican" bands at the turn of the century wasn't even from Mexico. Although Grupo Montez de Durango's sound is deeply rooted in the music of traditional Mexican music, it is also influenced by the members' hometown of Chicago.

Jose Luis Terrazas founded Grupo Montez De Durango in 1996. Terrazas, who was born in Durango, Mexico, grew up in Chicago and was a percussionist in the marching band at his high school. He hooked up with a traditional Mexican banda and learned that these groups were very popular in Chicago. The next step was the formation of his own group.
