The band Los Bandits de MIchigan has been performing since 1991, but each individual member has over thirty years musical experience. Band members include René Meave (guitar/vocals), Guillermo (Memo) Martinez (accordions/vocals), Esteban (Steve) Ortiz (drums/vocals) and Ernesto (Ernie) Ortiz (bass guitar/vocals). Los Bandits’ music reflects the richness of Tex-Mex music by combining Rhythm and Blues, Gospel, Country, Rock, Norteño, and Tejano Music. The band has an alternative world-beat sound that appeals to a very diverse audience.

In 1999, the Governor and the Hispanic Caucus the State of Michigan honored Meave and Martinez with a special tribute for their outstanding contribution of Tex-Mex music in Michigan. In 2005, a documentary on the band entitled Los Bandits: More than a Tex-Mex was released.
