Mariachi Vargas was incepted in the Mexican city Tecalitlan. It was Gaspar Vargas who is credited with being the founder of the ensemble in the year 1897.  The first phase of the ensemble lasted all the way till 1931 during which Vargas and his group members began to perform on a consistent basis. They also experimented with different instruments and the line-up also kept on changing.

The second phase kicked-off when Gaspar Vargas handed over the Mariachi Vargas leadership to his son Silvestre. He had his own ideas and began to give the group an entirely new direction. Silvestre wasn’t just happy with it being a Mariachi playing band. He wanted the group to become the best in Mexico and for that he expanded the line-up and started to perform at various festivals.

It was in 1933 that Mariachi Vargas first gained some recognition. They won a music contest that year and followed that up by repeating the achievement next year. More opportunities beckoned and the ensemble re-located to Mexico City. The group began to record for movies and added the violin and trumpet to instruments used by the group to enhance its music’s reach.

Ruben Fuentas then came onboard and he teamed up with Silvestre to turn Mariachi Vargas into a more professional group. Fuentas then took over the reigns as far as their music direction was concerned. A more unified sound was created by integrating Sones and Huapangos together. This all was during the third phase of the ensemble. The changes began to show their rewards and the music started to become more mainstream oriented.

By the time 1970’s came to town, Mariachi music needed a new lease of life and that arrived when the very first mariachi conference was held in 1979. It was the first effort of its kind on international level. Jose Martinez, Sr. had by then become the music director of Mariachi Vargas and the group was at the forefront of the Mariachi music revolution taking place. Their popularity reached a new level when they performed with "Linda Ronstadt" on her Grammy winning album titled "Canciones de mi Padre."  

1994 was the arrival of the fourth phase of this astonishing group. That particular line-up is widely considered to be the best and the most talented in Mariachi Vargas’s history. It was this collection of artists that came out with the album "La fiesta del Mariachi" that was geared towards paying homage to the genius of Jose Martinez. Not only that, but Ruben Fuentes achievements were also celebrated with creations like "En Concierto," "la fiesta del Mariachi" and "El Mariachi Vargas."

The fifth and the latest phase of Mariachi Vargas began in the year 2003. This generation of performers has made sure that they remain true to the roots which made the group famous in the first place. Yes, they have tweaked the sound a little bit even that has all the hallmarks of what has made Mariachi Vargas so famous around the globe.
