Regional Mexican frontmen Toño y Freddy put in years working in professional groups before striking out on their own and ultimately establishing one of their region's most reputable groups. Originally from Nuñez, Michoacán, Marco Antonio Macedo (Toño) and Alfredo Cárdenas (Freddy) spent better than a decade with La Dinastía de Tuzantla. Having gained the tools they needed to lead their own outfit, Macedo and Cárdenas struck out to form a group and sound that would reflect the authentic flavor of their beloved "campo," or countryside. The group's debut disc, Recuerdo de una Noche, was released with the support of the regional Mexican powerhouse label Disa. The album climbed the charts on the strength of hit single "Lo Lindo de Ti," peaking in the Top 20 on Billboard's Regional Mexican chart. Backed by their seven-piece band, Macedo and Cárdenas returned the following year with their sophomore release, Morenita Labios Rojos. The record helped to establish Toño y Freddy as a group of the rise, this time taking the number three spot on Billboard's Regional Mexican chart. The airplay that Morenita Labios Rojos generated introduced the group's music to stateside audiences, establishing strong followings in Chicago, Los Angeles, and throughout Texas. The group's 2007 release, Esperando Tu Llamada, garnered notice, but less impressive numbers than previous releases. Toño y Freddy's constant presence on Mexican music charts has positioned them as one of their region's most secure groups in the "sparkle and fade" regional Mexican music genre. ~ Evan C.
