About the Artists

Vicente Fernandez, Jr.
Vicente Fernandez, Jr. is the oldest of Mexican music legend Vicente Fernandez’s children, who are known as the "Potrillos." When he was 6 years old, Vicente, Jr. began learning the joy of singing and the importance of respecting the audience from his father. One of his first appearances was at Huentitan El Charro, Teatro Whitey Mexico City and the Million Dollar de Los Angeles, California. He had cameos on two of his father’s projects: "Tacos al Carbon," the debut film of Vicente Fernandez in 1971 and "One and a Half Against the World" in 1972. 
Vicente, Jr. also accompanied his father on world tours in Mexico, Central America, South America and the United States. While on tour in 2001-02, he was able to produce two albums:  "El Mayor de los Potrillos" in 2001, and "Vicente Fernandez Hijo con Mariachi" in 2002. 
In 2008, Vicente recorded his third album, "Juramentos" produced by Jorge Avendano. It was with this album that Vicente introduced his way into banda. That same year Vicente returned to acting in the lead role of Uncle Vicente Robles in the telenovela “Fuego en la Sangre.” This role opened doors for him in the US market. In 2009 Vicente Fernandez Jr. was able to realize one of his dreams when he performed at the famous Sports Palace, which is a traditional Charros venue.
In April 2011, Vicente joined the cast of the telenovela "Triunfo del Amor" starring Maite Perroni and William Levy. That same year he cut his fourth album, which captures the roots of Mexican music with flamenco guitars and harmonious arrangements. The next year, father and son teamed up again to produce the album "Los Dos Vicente's,” performing separately and together on "Vamos a Cuidarla Mas.” After an absence of three years, Vicente Fernandez Jr. is ready to get back to performing for his beloved audience.
