Originales de Daniel Gallegos
Sangre Joven, a very popular band, originated in the Northern New Mexico pueblo de Las Vegas. Our style of music is performed in El Estillo Del Norte Nuevo Mexico and consists of Rancheras, a few Cumbias and Valses traditional to our heritage for centuries. The Band began it's musical journey back in 1988 when Lorenzo Miguel Gallegos and brother Daniel Gallegos founded the group. Several other members have attributed to the success through out the past two decades including artists such as Robert (Seaweed) Gonzales, better known as Gonzalo, Michael Marquez y Dulzura, Joaquin Maestas of Quemoso and of course Lorenzo Miguel. The result was seven very successful albums. The first album was recorded in 1989 and entitled SANGRE JOVEN DE LAS VEGAS NEW MEXICO put us on the map, and the music scene! Three other albums followed ESTA VIDA, ON THE RUN and MAL IDEAS which were such a huge success that it enabled us to open up for LOS LOBOS. From these four albums numerous original hits we produced including Linda Morena, Esta Vida, Chiquitita de Mi Vida, Triste Aqui, Soy Musiqero, El Carrito Chevey (55) and many more. During the summer of 1998, we released our fifth CD entitled MALA SANGRE. It was a very large success due in part to the impressive brass section we added and the many original songs that hit the charts. We wrote and arranged Alegre Corazon, Poco A Poco, Sin tus Besos, La Mas Hermosa, and Besitos de Amor (which was nominated for best SALSA/Tropical song of the year.) The album was so successful it inspired and encouraged us to record a new enhanced CD entitled NORTENISIMO. This album features a special multimedia section with a full-length video for Mac of PC computer. In 2006 the band went through a transformation, becoming a four piece group again and tieing it's music to it's traditional roots with a new CD, SANGRE JOVEN (Originales de Daniel Gallegos.) Two of the original songs off the CD Te Me Fuistes and Y Que have appeared in the top (5) on KSLV'S HORAS LATINA with Jerry Medina in Monte Vista, Colorado. Also a TV appearance on the Anthony Segura show in Albuquerque in December 2007 has elevated the band to new heights. Currently the band is showcasing their music all over the southwest. New members of the band include Martin Salazar (Rhythum Guitar, Vocals) Ellerry Pena (Bass, Vocals) Manny Lucero (Drums) and the original member Daniel Gallegos (Lead Guitar, Vocals). Dan is working on a solo original CD to be released in the spring of 2009. Also just released, Los Gallegos Brozz (Puro; Pinche; Party) featuring Daniels carnales Francisco Gallegos and Rey Gallegos.
