Mario Eguía began playing mariachi over 14 years ago and under the tutelage of Ruben Baldenegro, he was soon performing with professional mariachi ensembles in Mexicali, Imperial Valley, Coachella Valley, San Diego and Los Angeles areas. Mario has toured extensively in the Jalisco area performing as a guest mariachi and has participated numerous times in the Tucson International Mariachi Conference. In his years as a mariachi he has been privileged to have shared the stage with some of the most renowned mariachis such as Los Camperos de Nati Cano, Sol De Mexico, Nuevo Tecalitlan, and Mariachi Vargas.
Aside from over a decade of mariachi experience, Mario obtained an Associate in Arts in Music-Mariachi Specialization from Southwestern College in 2013. He currently attends SDSU as a music education undergraduate where he hopes to obtain his California single subject teaching credential in the near future
