Grupo Control is a regional Mexican group based in Houston, who bill themselves as Los Reyes de la Cumbia (The Kings of Cumbia). Founded by Sergio Alberto Degollado (vocals, bass) and José Guadalupe Degollado (vocals, bajo sexto) from El Control, Tamaulipas, Mexico, the group made its full-length album debut in 1999 with “Cumbias Sin Control.” Since then, they have released eight other albums, with a series of regional Mexican chart hits including “Ella Es una Diosa,” “Llueve Sobre Mojado,” “Viva el Amor,” and “Vuela Paloma.”

Los Tigrillos formed in the early 1980s, making their debut with the release of a self-titled album in 1985, followed by 1987's “Mire Amigo” and 1988's “Tremenda Punalada.” Playing a mixture of Cumbia and norteño styles, the band's breakthrough came after signing with MCM in 1995. A year later, they released a successful record called “Cumbias Con Garra.” They soon became a gold-status band, repeating that achievement after issuing “Dejando Huella” in 1998.
