Los Huracanes del Norte really got their start in the south, when founder Heraclio "Rocky" Garcia sang as a young boy in Jalisco with his famous grandfather, singer Don Jesus Ruvalcaba. That experience put a love for music in Garcia's blood that stayed with him, even when his family immigrated to San Jose, California when he was just 11 years old. In 1972 he formed Los Huracanes del Norte with his two brothers, though the group didn't have a name at the time. As the story goes, they were just finishing their first recording and were having a terrible time coming up with a name, so they asked the delivery guy for a suggestion. He came up with Los Huracanes del Norte and a legend was born. Thanks to steady gigs and a constant stream of hits for over thirty years, the group is less a pop phenomenon an! d more an institution in the norteno circuit. In recent years the group has expanded to bring in new members, including Garcia's son, Antonio "El Guero" Garcia and Jose Luis Mejia.
