Los Lobos at the Heritage Theatre

In 2003, while celebrating the 30th Anniversary of their humble beginnings as a garage band in East L.A., Rolling Stone summed up their distinctive, diverse, freewheeling fusion of rock, blues, soul, and Mexican fold music: "This is what happens when five guys create a magical sound, then stick together...to see how far it can take them."
After celebrating their 40th anniversary with the 2013 live album Disconnected In New York City, the hard working, constantly touring band leapt headfirst into their fifth decade with Gates of Gold, their first full length studio album since 2010's Tin Can Trust (a Grammy nominee for Best Americana Album).
Their 1984 major label breakthrough album, How Will The Wolf Survive?, still ranks #30 on Rolling Stone's list of the 100 greatest albums of the 1980s. Three decades, three Grammy Awards, and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, LOS LOBOS is still jamming with the same raw intensity they had when they began in that garage in 1973.
