The band's producers from the beginning have been A.B. Quintanilla III and Cruz Martínez. A.B. Quintanilla is also known as the brother of the late "Queen of Tejano Music", Selena. Though the group has gone through a revolving door of members in recent years amid controversy and finger-pointing, and the Kumbia Kings of today are vastly different than what originated in Corpus Christi, Texas over 10 years ago but A.B.
and Cruz were always the soul of the group. Unfortunately, A.B. Quintanilla, Irvin "PeeWee" Salinas, as well as Selena's widower Chris Pérez, also decided to leave the group due to "internal dissention" in 2006. Cruz Martínez kept Los Kumbia Kings but changed the name to Los Super Reyes for legal issues.
In October 2009, A.B. Quintanilla and Cruz Martínez have solved their differences, and announced that the Kumbia Kings will reunite for a series of concerts lasting from late 2009 through early 2010.
