This bar in the northern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon is the last place where a 20-member Colombian-style band was seen before they went missing last week.
But authorities suspect that they found the bodies of at least a dozen of the musicians in a nearby well, discovered on Saturday.
Although forensics are still to confirm the identity of the bodies, a security spokesman for Nuevo Leon state said some bodies retrieved from the well wore shirts emblazoned with the band's logo.
Investigations at the crime scene are still ongoing.
Local media has reported that more bodies may still lie in the well.
The Kombo Kolombia group were reported missing on Friday shortly after a private concert at the remote bar.
The band are believed to be regulars on the local, live music scene.
According to local media, at least two of the bars where they have played had reportedly been attacked by gunmen.
The motive for the band's disappearance is unclear.
