The 21st Amendment Lounge says
Born and raised in Seguin, Texas, four-time Grammy award-winner David de la Garza was born into a musical family. His father, along with 7 of his brothers, made sure music was always a part of David's life. His father started him early in the music business, making him get up on stage at the age of 7. By the age of 16, David was a full-fledged music veteran. He was playing music full time, going away on weekends and being back in school by Monday morning. It was after graduating high school that David's life would change forever. In 1988, Tejano supergroup La Mafia was looking to add a keyboard player to their group and had been hearing about David through many people. He joined the band in January of 1989, right at the time when La Mafia were making a change from a Tejano sound to more of an international sound that led them to many years of worldwide success. During the 1990's, La Mafia were able to cross many boundaries that few Tejano bands had ever crossed--things like selling out venues such as the Houston Astrodome and playing in front of 100,000 people in Mexico City. It was in the 90's that David was able to get his first two Grammys with the band (receiving two more in 2004 and 2005). In 2006, David fulfilled a long-time dream and started his own band, playing the kind of music Funk, Rock, and Soul music that he wanted. Although still a key member of La Mafia, with his own band, he's able to stretch out musically, and is a crowd-pleaser wherever he performs.
