ROCK | Los Lobos


Los Lobos is the epitome of a cultural melting pot. The band blends American roots music, rock, and blues with Latin styles, including cumbia and norteño, to create a broad-based sound of its own. Established in 1973, Los Lobos topped the charts a decade later with a cover of "La Bamba" while its other tunes, like "Wake Up Dolores," completely hypnotize the ears. The band itself is remarkably intact, with nearly all of its members remaining from its original lineup. Los Lobos is a shoo-in for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so this show is a must see.

Los Lobos performs as part of Party in the Park on Thursday, June 15, at Martin Luther King Jr. Park, 353 Court Street. 5 p.m. $5.
