The Ponte Vedra Concert Hall proudly announces that GRAMMY-winning East L.A. rockers Los Lobos will perform in concert. The hard working, constantly touring Los Lobos (David Hidalgo, Louie Perez, Cesar Rosas, Conrad Lozano, and Steve Berlin) leaps headfirst into their fifth decade with an invitation to join them as they open fresh and exciting new “Gates of Gold”, their first full length studio album since 2010’s “Tin Can Trust” (a GRAMMY nominee for Best Americana Album) and second with Savoy/429 Records.
The dynamic songwriting, deeply poetic lyrics, thoughtful romantic and spiritual themes and eclectic blend of styles on the 11 track collection has resulted in an American saga in the rich literary tradition of legendary authors John Steinbeck and William Faulkner. Yet true to form, these typically humble musical wolves started in on the project without any grand vision or musical roadmap.
Perez, once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music “the soundtrack of the barrio”. Three decades, two more GRAMMYs, the global success of “La Bamba” and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is surviving quite well — and still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in that garage in 1973.
Doors 7:00pm / Show 8:00pm
