Callejeros is an Argentine rock band that gained notoriety when the nightclub where they were playing, Republica Cromagnon, was set on fire during one of its shows, killing 194 attendees, in 2004.
The band have defined themselves as a rock and roll band and diversity of rates but with its own style. Callejeros has acknowledged musical influences: direct ones from Chuck Berry, Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota, Creedence and The Beatles, but also from Pink Floyd, Leon Gieco, Bob Marley, AC/DC, etc.
The band was formed in mid-1995 by a group of young people of Villa Celina, Greater Buenos Aires. They were known initially as Rio Verde ("Green River") and mostly played covers of Chuck Berry, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Patricio Rey Y Sus Redonditos De Ricota. At the end of 1996 the band changed its lineup and recruited new members. Given the extensive change to the original group, in January 1997, they changed their name to Callejeros. A new guitarist and a saxophonist came into the band between late 1999 and early 2000, and it is with this lineup that Callejeros recorded the three albums it has released to date.
