Grupo Fuego was formed in the fall of 1999. They are very lucky to have a group of musicians that has remained constant over the years and who have given the band its powerful sound. They have come a long way from their humble roots and have grown in popularity along just as Latin Music has grown more popular. Their fan base covers all ages and ethnic groups due to the energy that the band puts forth in its performances.
Grupo Fuego has been part of many Latino and multi-cultural events including performances at La Calle Ocho Festival, Virginia Beach Latin Festival, Latino del Norte Arts' Festival, Cincylatino Festival, Cincy-Cinco Festival, Fiesta Olé, Toledo Latinofest, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for Latino Heritage Day, the Cleveland Music Hall for Brewfest, the Puerto Rican Cultural Festival in Cleveland and Chicago, the Taste of Cleveland Festival, the Columbus Latino Festival, and the Cityfolk Festival in Dayton, among many others.
Grupo Fuego has also shared the stage with many legends of Latin music including Victor Manuelle, Elvis Crespo, Jose Alberto "El Canario", Tito Rojas, Aventura, Monchi y Alexandra, Tito Puente Jr., Ivy Queen, Sonora Carruseles, Fat Joe, and Huey Dunbar. Thanks, in part, to the assistance of these fine and talented people, Grupo Fuego has really been catching the public's ear.
After the success of their debut album, which elevated the band to international status, Grupo Fuego comes back with their sophomore effort titled: "The Element". The album's concept describes Grupo Fuego's maturity, inspiration, energy, and creative force, also qualities of "Fire" as one of the four elements. This musical production sets new heights for Grupo Fuego due to its musical variety, balance, richer melodies, and energetic material from start to end. "The Element" was again produced by 3 time Grammy winner, Freddy Mendez, who already knows and understands Grupo Fuego's chemistry, delivering a more powerful sound. It was also an honor for Grupo Fuego to have a special participation from Humberto Ramirez, great musician and music arranger from Puerto Rico, in the salsa version of the song "Sueño". On this musical production, Grupo Fuego continues the journey of pleasing the dancer as well as the listener by delivering fire transformed into music and movement.
