How To Hire Little Joe y La Familia For A Private Party Or Special Event!
GRAMMY AWARD winning José María De León Hernández, known professionally as Little Joe, is an American Tejano performer who grew up in Temple, Texas, and lives in Temple, Texas.
Little Joe is of Mexican descent. He told the Stockton Record in 2015 that he was born “in a three-wall, dirt-floor garage … on a cold stormy night,” the seventh of 13 children. His father, Salvador, was known as “La Cotorra” (the parakeet) and was a troubadour. His mother, Amelia DeLeon, was a trained pianist. “My dad and aunts all played instruments and sang,” he told the Riverside Press-Enterprise (Nov. 18, 2015). “We’d go to parties that would last until three in the morning.”
Hernández got his start at 13 when his cousin, David Coronado, recruited him to play guitar for his Latinaires. The Latinaires eventually became known as Little Joe and the Latinaires. Today he is usually joined by his band La Familia. In 1992, their album 16 de Septiembre earned the Grammy Award for Best Mexican-American Performance. In 2008, Little Joe once again won a Grammy for Best Tejano Album of the year for Before the Next Teardrop Falls. Other Grammy nominated albums include Timeless (1988), 1993’s Que Paso (1993), Little Joe y La Familia 2000 (1999), and Celebration of Life Vol.1 & Vol.2 (2003).
Little Joe has said he was greatly influenced by Beto Villa, the originator of orquesta Tejana that generally features trumpets and saxophones, as opposed to conjunto, which relies on accordions. As a member of Texas’ Tejano Hall of Fame, he’s been entertaining audiences around the world for more than 50 years, on 70 albums and in countless shows.
His style has been called Tejano, Tex-Mex, Norteno, Chicano, La Onda. Hernández told the Stockton Record in 2015 that originally, “it was just multicultural music in two languages.” Hernandez, who grew up with 12 brothers and sisters as the only non-African-American family in a “totally black” neighborhood, told The Record: “All I heard every day were black artists. At home, it was country music’s three ‘great Hanks’: “Williams, Thompson and Snow”. It was always part of the atmosphere. Part of my DNA.”
He’s known as “King of the Brown Sound.”
Little Joe has said he is inspired by jazz. “I love jazz,” he told the Riverside Press-Enterprise. “If I could have been a jazz musician, I would have preferred that.” Little Joe has been known to infuse his music not only with jazz, but also country, pop and classical music. One of his most popular recorded songs, “Las Nubes,” incorporates violins and other strings.

(i.e., what is the booking fee to hire LITTLE JOE y LA FAMILIA for an event?)
(i.e., what is LITTLE JOE y LA FAMILIA booking fee to perform at an event?)
Official booking fees for LITTLE JOE y LA FAMILIA, or any other celebrity, are determined based on a number of factors and may change at anytime without prior notice.
Factors influencing pricing vary and may include date, location, type of event, whether a private party or a public concert, the artist’s calendar, whether the artist is on tour or not, how well tickets are selling at the artist’s concerts, the current demand for the artist’s music, market activity, etc.
As you might expect, the more in-demand the artist is, the more buyers are prepared to pay. Of course, this causes the artist’s price to increase as the artist becomes more popular or decrease when becoming less popular.
Exclusive agents with exclusive representation frequently quote a range instead of a specific price, since changes can occur at anytime. Generally, the artist’s manager has a role in the decision to accept any particular offer from a talent buyer.
