Los Lobos at The Rose in Pasadena, CA

A post-Christmas end of year homecoming saw east LA rock legends Los Lobos grace the stage of The Canyon at The Rose in Pasadena, CA. Featuring a line-up that includes founding members David Hidalgo (vocals, guitar, accordion, fiddle, requite garrote), Louis Perez (drums, guitar, jarring huasteca, vocals), and Cesar Rosas (vocals, guitar, bag sexto), and Conrad Lozano ( bass, guitarron, vocals), Steve Berlin, keyboards, woodwinds, guitar), Enrique González (drums, percussion), and touring percussionist Marcos Reyes, a standing-room crowd was treated to a 90 minute set of some of the best Tex-Mex, country, zydeco, R&B and soul-influenced rock & roll west of the Mississippi. Touring in support of their critically acclaimed debut Christmas release Llegó Navidad (Rhino Records), fans were treated to an 18 song set featuring fan favorites “La Bamba,” “Come On, Let’s Go”  and “Don’t Worry Baby.” Los Lobos continues its west coast concert tour through January.

Serving as self-appointed ambassadors to their East LA community, Los Lobos shot the video for the single, “Christmas and You” in their Boyle Heights neighborhood.

Los Lobos (Spanish for "the Wolves") rose to international stardom in the late '80s when their hit version of Richie Valens' “La Bamba” topped the US and UK record charts. They performed the song in the film La Bamba. In 2015, they were nominated for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2018 they were inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame.
