Como La Flor: Tribute to Selena

Feb 16, 2018

The Como La Flor Band is the trendsetter when it comes to Selena tributes. The Como La Flor Band was founded in 2011 in the small town of Holtville, Ca. Dedicated to the loyal fans, the band has worked hard and with the upmost humbleness and respect to bring the Selena experience with so much detail. Our singers visual demeanor is uncanny to the Tex-Mex Queen, so much so that at many venues the audience responds to her looks; but when Karol(singer) begins to sing...the audience can't believe what they are experiencing, it's as if Selena is really their on stage.
