Siggno consists of 6 members who share a common dream of being able to share their
music with the world. A bit of destiny and a lot of hard work have made this group
of musicians one of the most popular and sought after bands in their area. All
of Siggno's members were born and raised in the Rio Grande Valley. Most of their
appearances have been in this area, but they have also represented the Valley
in places such as Houston, Killeen, Austin, San Antonio and Mexico.
As a whole, Siggno was influenced by conjunto/norteņo gospel bands such
as Los Tremendos Gallileos, Conjunto Bernal, and Los Alegres de Harlingen.
In February of 2000, Siggno started opening up for major bands and
extended their local popularity. The band has now signed with Crown Records and
has gotten one step closer to reaching their dream. This band's repertoire features
a wide variety of original songs which have now been recorded and are ready to
be shared with all listeners. The band's originality, energetic sound, and strong
stage presence are sure to be pleasing to people of all ages. A taste of Grupo
Siggno's music will have you hooked!
Ever since he was a boy, Jesse Turner, was playing on pots and pans.
It was his fathers dream to see him perform in front of thousands of people. Unfortunately,
by the time Jesse was nine years old, his father passed away. Leaving Jesse with
mixed emotions, he began to look for hobbies to forget about the pain. He quickly
learned how to play every conjunto instrument and presented his talent in church.
Jesse toured with gospel bands until the age of 15 when a local band offered him
a job performing at schools, weddings, and birthday parties. As he grew older
he learned about what love, hate, and basically what every teenager feels. He
wrote songs about how he felt and about his personal experiences in life. He never
shared his songs with anybody because he was to afraid of criticism. As time went
on, he learned how to sing and began to sing his songs on stage. The response
was a good one, which gave him confidence to continue. Jesse also gained musical
experience by playing drums with Ruben Vela and accordion with Grupo Intento.
He is now the lead vocalist and accordion player for Siggno.
Joel Castaņeda was
united with Joseph Scott and Jesse Turner were united by their parents at a small
pentecostal church in Harlingen, Texas. It was there that the boys were given
their first opportunity to play together. Joel was inspired by his father who
plays bajo-sexto. Joel has a younger brother, Jacob Castaņeda, who plays drums
