Gilberto Perez Jr., whom everyone calls “Chore,” needed a little help with his sophomore album. Chore has been the bajo sexto player and second voice for his father, the legendary Gilberto Perez Sr., for decades and he decided to branch out a little bit with his own group. Periodically, his dad will sit in with Chore and the rest of the band, which includes veteran accordion master Juan Antonio Tapia, Aldo Solis on bass and brother Javier Perez on drums. When he asked for our help on Humilde Corazones, we jumped at the chance to help one of the most beloved families in Conjunto music.
Humilde Corazones was released after a major health scare for Chore, which he addresses in an intro at the beginning of the album. In addition to being an extraordinary musician, Chore is a great songwriter (there are several originals on this album) and a meticulous producer and engineer. Each track is classic Conjunto and features the same Rio Grande Valley heart that fans have come to know and love for so long.
For booking, contact Javier Perez at 956-873-1448 and follow the band on Facebook.
