Mexico’s Mariachi Vargas and Washington’s Mariachi Huenachi meet at the Pantages this Sunday

It might be a long way from Mexico to Washington, but with music the distance evaporates. This Sunday at the Pantages Washington’s premiere high school mariachi band, Mariachi Huenachi (from Wenatchee, of course) will open the show for the band widely regarded as the world’s best: Mariachi Vargas de Tecalitlán. For the Wenatchee students it’s not only their first time in Tacoma, it’s the highlight of a touring schedule that has them taking mariachi joy around the state.
