Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- When we think of school music programs, most people think of orchestras, marching bands and choirs, but there's another flavor of music that's exploding in our schools: Mariachi.

Members of Mariachi Los Bravos de J.D. Smith Middle School was at Action News Friday to showcase their great talents.

This is one of the oldest Mariachi programs in the Clark County School District.
