Noel Torres vs. Regulo Caro

These two Sinaloa stars and Del Records artists face off on an amicable, 17-city duel to determine which singer is the definitive voice of banda/bachata/pop. Born in Badiraguato, Sinaloa, Noel Torres grew up in a family of amateur ballad and corridor singers; as a young pop singer, his independent records caught the attention of genre giant Del Records. For the past six years, his voice has been a ubiquitous presence in the regional style, with a confident, triumphant tone. With tuba making a prominent appearance in his work, Regulo Caro finds a fruitful middle point between norteño and banda. $50-$100, 9pm, El Corona Nite Club, 7503 W. U.S. Highway 90, (210) 372-5661 — Matt Stieb
