Joining us from Vegas is Mario Rosales


Winter Texan Expo:  Main Stage, Tuesday, January 16 12:15 PM

            Mario Rosales was born and raised in Southern California, one of 11 children in a bona fide musical family. He began playing piano and violin at the age of five and later learned to play the harmonica, clarinet, saxophone, and guitar.

            Mario spent most of his adult life as an actor, voice-over artist, and stand-up comedian in Hollywood. Later in life, he worked in radio as a talk-show host. In 2004, singing became his main career path, which eventually led him to Branson, Missouri, where he was nominated for Best Male Vocalist and Best Track Show.

            In October of 2016, Mario moved to Las Vegas at the urging of his friends, Bucky Heard and Bill Medley of the Righteous Brothers, who have a show at Harrah’s.

            Mario’s musical range is extensive, from classic country to Frank Sinatra. His comedy is clean and hilarious!

            Though he now works as a busy entertainer in Las Vegas, Mario vows to continue performing for his beloved Winter Texans, if but for a couple of weeks every year.
