The Mavericks and Los Lobos
Grammy Award winners The Mavericks and Los Lobos will co-headline at the Vina Robles Amphitheatre on August. 14
GRAMMY, CMA & ACM Award-winning band, The Mavericks, are an eclectic rock and country group known for crisscrossing musical boundaries with abandon. The group has gone through three distinct phases since it was founded in Miami in 1989. An initial period of heady success marked by big hits and critical acclaim in the ‘90s. A long hiatus starting 2003 when the musicians each went their own way. And finally, a triumphant reunion in 2012, which held long enough for them to recently celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary. Now, The Mavericks are releasing a new album that ushers in the fourth phase of their evolution. Born of Cuban-American roots in Miami, the Country, Americana, and Tejano-infused Rock & Roll band comes full circle to mesh their uplifting eclecticism with a collection of their own Spanish language originals and classic Latin tracks from which they drew inspiration.
For over 40 years, Los Lobos, has been mixing Latin with soul grooves, roots rock, Mexican folk, traditional Spanish, blues and R&B. Original members, David Hidalgo, Cesar Rosas, Louie Perez, Steve Berlin and Conrad Lozano (with the additional help of Enrique “Bugs” Gonzalez and Camilo Quinones) play with an invigorating, joyous spirit as they revisit four decades of musical magic. The three time Grammy-winning band, Los Lobos, have forged a stellar career unlike any other in the rock, blues or traditional genres by constantly pushing their creative boundaries. The energized performances on “Disconnected In New York City” represent every era of their storied career from “I Got To Let You Know” from “How Will The Wolf Survive?” to their breakout #1 hit “La Bamba” to rarer tracks from their 90’s releases and their last studio album “Tin Can Trust”. Playing with a stripped down ensemble, the recording, although not fully acoustic, shines with a close-knit intimacy.
