Intocable “Untouchable” is a Tejano and Norteño musical group from Zapata, Texas that was started by friends Ricky Muñoz and Renè Martìnez in the early 1990s.
Currently, Intocable could very well be the most influential group in Tejano, and their tough Tejano and Norteño fusion has become the blueprint for dozens of Tex-Mex groups. The group’s strengths, which include romantic melodies and tight instrumentation and vocal harmony is consistently being imitated by a list of other Tejano and Norteño groups.
Carreer accomplishments include four consecutive sold-out nights at Mexico City’s prestigious Auditorio Nacional and the group’s 2003 headlining appearance at Reliant Stadium in Houston, which drew a record 70,104 fans. They also played two sold-out dates at the 10,000-capacity Monterrey Arena in Monterrey, Mexico. It was an unusual accomplishment, given that Norteño groups typically play large dance halls and rarely arenas.
Intocable has also won at least eight of Univision’s Premio Lo Nuestro awards, and received their first Grammy win in February 2005 at the 47th Annual Grammys. It was recently nominated in five categories for the upcoming Latin Billboard Regional Mexican Awards.
“This legendary group is one of the main social and creative voices of Latin music and we are pleased to present them to our guest,” said Jim Valencia, public relations coordinator for Eagle Mountain Casino.
