Metalachi, the world’s first and only heavy metal mariachi band – will play two Washington state spots during their upcoming US tour beginning next month.

Hailing from Hollywood, CA via Juarez, Mexico, Metalachi is a musical/comedy stage show that blends the world of Spinal Tap and Cheech & Chong into an over-the-top stage spectacle. The band is comprised of a five-piece ensemble of classically trained mariachi musician siblings. Fans can expect an unlikely meshing of metal classics from artist such as Metallica, Slayer, Ozzy Osbourne and more with traditional mariachi standards from the likes of Vicente Fernandez and Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlan… all played with traditional mariachi instrumentation but with a stage show that strays far from traditional!
