Tedeschi Trucks Band

Tedeschi Trucks Band carries a distinguished reputation as one of the premier live bands performing today - and they show no signs of slowing down as they head into their tenth year together. Led by Derek Trucks’ stinging fretwork and Susan Tedeschi’s naturally stunning, emotive vocals and guitar talents, the 12-member strong collective continues to expand musical boundaries in ways that only a rare caliber of musician can achieve. The band is touring in 2020 behind their fourth studio album, Signs and companion EP High & Mighty. Commanding performances and exceptional musical chemistry – hallmarks of the can’t-miss-concert experience fans have come to anticipate live – are evident throughout. From uplifting soulful anthems, to bittersweet ballads and driving rock and roll, Tedeschi Trucks Band delivers a sound and message that taps tradition while also extending the edges of American music with a genre defying collection that is all their own.

Los Lobos

The journey of Los Lobos began in 1973, when David Hidalgo (vocals, guitar, and pretty much anything with strings), Louie Perez (drums, vocals, guitar), Cesar Rosas (vocals, guitar), and Conrad Lozano (bass, vocals, guitarrón) earned their stripes playing revved - up versions of Mexican folk music in restaurants and at parties. The band evolved in the 1980s as it t app ed into L.A.’s burgeoning punk and college rock scenes . They were soon sharing bills with bands like the Circle Jerks, Public Image Ltd. a nd the Blasters , whose saxophonist, Steve Berlin, would eventually leave the group to join Los Lobos in 1984 . Early on, Los Lobos enjoyed critical success , winning the Grammy® for Best Mexican - American Performance for “Anselma” from its 1983 EP ...And a Time to Dance . A year later , the group released its full - length, major - label debut, How Will the Wolf Survive? Co - produced by Berlin and T Bone Burnett, the album was a c ollege rock sensation that helped Los Lobos tie with Bruce Springsteen as Rolling Stone’ s Artist of the Year. A major turning point came in 1987 with the release of the Ritchie Valens biopic , La Bamba . The quintet’s cover of Valens’ signature song topped the charts in the U.S. and the U.K. Rather than capitalize on that massive commercial success, Los Lobos instead chose to record La Pistola y El Corazón, a tribute to Tejano and Mariachi music that won the 1989 Grammy® for Best Mexica n - American Performance. That kind of sharp artistic turn has become Los Lobos’ trademark, serving to both fuel the band’s creativ ity and keep its fans engaged . In 1992, th at willingness to defy expectations led them to record Kiko , an adventurous album produced by Mitchell Froom that’s considered by many to be one the band’s very best. Since then, Los Lobos has continued to deliver daring and diverse albums such as Colossal Head (1996), Good Morning Aztlán (2002), The Town and the City (2006), Tin Can Trust (2010) and Gates of Gold (2015) . On top of that , t he band ’s live show s never disappoint , as documented on the recent concert recordings Live at the Fillmore (2005) and Disconnected in New York City ( 2013). Through the years, they’ve managed to ke ep things interesting with u nexpected side trips like a n album of Disney songs in 2009, along with countless contributions to tribute albums and film soundtrack s. One of those – “Mariachi Suite” from the 199 5 film Desperado – earned the band a Grammy® for Best Pop Instrumental Performance. Los Lobos has sold millions of records, won prestigious awards and made fans around the world . Bu t perhaps its most lasting impact will be how well its music embodies the idea of America as a cultural melting pot . In it, styles like son jarocho , norteño , Tejano , folk , country , doo - wop , soul , R&B , rock ’n’ roll and punk all come together to create a new sound that ’s greater than the sum of its parts.
