Los Lobos may be most widely known for the hit "La Bamba,” but for more than 40 years the band has reigned as one of the world’s most innovative and critically acclaimed groups. Formed in the mid-1970s by David Hidalgo, Cesar Rosas Louis Perez and Conrad Lozano, Los Lobos began as a traditional acoustic Mexican group, but under the influence of L.A.’s ‘80s punk rock scene, the members went electric, thus incorporating their blues, R&B, Latin, jazz and rock influences into an energized sound. The band is embarking an ambitious series of dates hot on the heels of the release of the new, full length studio album, Gates of Gold. The album was produced by the band with music that is as dynamic, eclectic and distinctive as the band’s ever created. The DANCE FLOOR will be open for this show.
