Cafe Peyote front man Ricardo Beas got his start singing in Tijuana cafes, before launching Cafe Peyote in 2003, just as the U.S. was launching its second major military push in Iraq.

Beas met musician and producer Luis Elorza in 2007, with drummer Paco Elorza joining them to fuse a melodic sound, heavy on meaningful lyrics. Beas lives in San Diego, and the Elorza brothers live in Tijuana, Mexico.
