Ralph & The Cruisers


We are a Harlingen - based musical group with deep roots in South Texas Rock-n-Roll. Ralph Escobedo, drummer and lead singer, began in the 1960's with a band known as The Cruisers. Over the late 60's and early 70's that band evolved with different members as some were drafted or moved away.

Eventually, the band dissolved but rock-n-roll remained a love for Ralph. He continued playing with different groups over the years, and after returning to Harlingen from Austin in 2003, he formed a group and called it THE CRUISERS. Today, that group has evolved with a few new members and the band is now called RALPH & THE CRUISERS.

The band plays a variety of musical genres with oldies Rock-n-Roll as the core of their repertoire. This includes Pop, Rock, Country, Blues, Latin, and Jazz with a focus on Hits and Standards from the 50's, 60's, and 70's. With a particular affinity for members of the Baby Boom Generation, their wide variety of music appeals to a diverse range of ages.

Proof positive is evident in the fact that RALPH & THE CRUISERS has been voted THE ROCK & ROLL BAND OF THE YEAR for three years in a row by Winter Texan fans and Activity Directors. God has blessed us with great fans.
