In real life, Los Bad Boys was made up of Joe Ojeda and Pete Astudillo. Their group was called The Bad Boyz and they originally opened for Selena y Los Dinos before going on tour with her band permanently. Pete told The Houston Chronicle that they originally opened for Selena y Los Dinos, but were later asked to be part of the band when they spoke with Selena’s father, Abraham Quintanilla. They even wrote songs for the group and today, Pete and Joe are still making music.
Selena’s husband, Chris Pérez, isn’t involved in the Netflix show, but Joe joined his group, The Chris Pérez Band, and Joe is also part of Pete’s band, Tekno-Mex. Just because they have moved on musically, however, it doesn’t mean they have forgotten about Selena in the least. Joe was part of Selena ¡VIVE!, a 2005 benefit concert in honor of Selena, and Pete often shares photos on Instagram of Selena and the rest of the band from back in the day.
