Biography
Chris Perez's world seemed to collapse, on March 31, 1995, as his wife and singer for his Tejano band Los Dinos, Selena was murdered by the former president of her fan club, Yolanda Saldivar. After a period of mourning, Perez made his return to music with a new Rock en Espanol group, the Chris Perez Band, featuring La Mafia bassist Rudy Martinez, former Los Dinos keyboardist Joe Ojeda, vocalist John Garza and drummer Jesse Esquivel. The band's bi-lingual debut album, Resurrection, released in 1999, showcased Perez's songwriting with nine songs that he wrote or co-wrote with Ojeda. In a review of the album, the -San Antonio Express News wrote, "the music is essentially dance-flavored, rock-fueled, popcraft spiced by blues, soul and folk."

San Antonio-born Perez launched his musical career, in 1989, as guitarist for a bar-room group, Shelly Lares. His most successful work, however, came in collaboration with his late wife. Their four albums with Los Dinos, the band they shared with her sister, Suzette Arriaga, and her brother, A.B. Quintanella, brought them regional acclaim. Their work on Selena's solo albums attracted international attention. ~ Craig Harris, Rovi
