Oscar De La Rosa, the lead singer of the Grammy-winning Tejano group La Mafia, was attacked, along with his driver, outside a club in Houston early Monday.

In addition to sustaining a head injury, the singer also suffered several lacerations to his face, eye damage and lost two teeth according to the band's co-founder Armando Lichtenberger Jr.

De La Rosa is currently recovering at his Houston home as of Thursday afternoon, The Associated Press reported.

The attack was reportedly unprovoked. No arrests have been made as of yet.

The attacker had apparently been thrown out of the club shortly before he assaulted De La Rosa, say Houston police.

La Mafia is currently considering cancelling the remainder of their scheduled performances, Lichtenberger said.

In 2006, the band, which was formed in Houston in 1980, won a Grammy for the album "Nuevamente."
