Press Quotes

Because of my job I see a thousand bands a year. I listen to a to a lot of new stuff . I have never seen or heard anything like this. It is one of the most original projects I’ve ever seen. We will be following these guys’ progress. We want to work together.

– Joe Ferrari, Sony Music Canada

They are without question one of the most dynamic and captivating collections of performers of traditional and progressive Mexican music one could ever hope to witness.

– John Scoles, Times Change(d) owner (Winnipeg)

A killer Day of the Dead prog-mariachi with interpretive dance and a Guy Maddin–directed video. Too much concept for one band? Nope, not at all. 

- Laura Hamlett (Playback STL)

A Mexican mariachi/jarocho/rock band from Winnipeg?? Absolutely. And it works seamlessly.

- Felix Contreras (NPR)

WHAT.
THE HELL.

WAS THAT?!
Oh my God, that was...AWESOME! Where do I see more of that?! That band is from Winnipeg? Get out. Seriously? GET OUT! How did they even come up with that idea? That’s incredible. And it’s working! Wow! What an amazing show...I can’t even...I...Ha ha ha!

– Ticketmomster (Winnipeg music blogger)

The fusion presented by the Mariachi Ghost is masterful and the musical quality of their work is outstanding as is their performance. They use transcending musical elements in their songs.

– Christian Müller, Radio Femenina (El Salvador)
