Born in Nuevo León, but raised in Nuevo Laredo, Mexican Gilberto Puente began singing, along with his brother Raul Puente, in 1947 and formed a duo called Los Cuates Puente. They were joined in 1951 by Gustavo Puente and later Hermilio García, debuting in 1954 as Trio Puente García. After teaming up with José Porras and Chelo Silva in 1957, they moved to Mexico City, getting along with popular singer Virginia López and calling themselves Los Tres Reyes. In 1958, ex-Trio Los Panchos Hernando Aviles joined in, making their first record. Nevertheless, Los Tres Reyes disbanded in 1966. In the early '70s, Gustavo Puente started developing a successful career as a solo guitarist. ~ Drago Bonacich~ Rovi
