Local band Los Nobles open Omaha’s Cinco de Mayo festival

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – As Los Nobles plays, hundreds, then thousands head to the music.

For many, this stage is where Omaha Cinco de Mayo Festival really begins.

“Since I could walk, I remember coming here to watch this, the parade, this festival,” said Victor Cebrero, who is the band’s drummer. “It’s grown a lot over the years and it excites me that our community has grown a lot more, and I see all types of ethnicities here, and I’m like, yeah, I like (the unit). “

Four years ago, Augustin Hernandez de Millard and his friend Ray Bustamente, who had moved to the metro from Mexico, wanted to do something new with their music. So they turned to a classic sound and invited friends Victor and Luis Corral, both from Omaha, to play.

Friday night Nobles open to headliners Sonora Tropicana from Colombia to Los Angeles. By the time the opening set of Los Nobles was over, a crowd estimated at 3,000 people had gathered in front of the stage, dancing and enjoying the music.

“First of all, it’s an honor to receive the special gift to open this celebration,” Corral said. “The feeling of seeing people love our music, dancing, I think only a musician can feel that. It’s like watching your favorite team sport, where you want to see your team win, and that’s what it’s all about. It’s like seeing people supporting you, and it’s a wonderful feeling.

Cebrero said they hope to enter the studio soon to record together for the first time. Omaha Radio La Nueva sponsors the concert’s main stage, and radio personality DJ Mickey said that once Los Nobles record a CD, they will donate airtime to the local band.
