Los Lobos set to rock the Fred Saturday
The Fred will host two Grammy Award Winning bands, Los Lobos and Los Lonely Boys May 18 as the opening show of the Lexus of South Atlanta Summer Concert Series.
An American Grammy Award winning rock band from Texas, known as Los Lonely Boys, will take the stage at 8 p.m. This remarkable trio of brothers has been making music together since they were small children and now have a decade of professional experience under their belts as well. Los Lonely Boys write, sing and play music drawn from diverse sources, blending their influences into a seamless style. Hits include “Heaven”, “Fly Away” and “Believe”.
The triple-Grammy Award winners, Los Lobos released their debut album in 1978. The band broke wide with 1984’s “How Will the Wolf Survive?” In 1987 they released their follow-up “By the Light of the Moon,” and also recorded Ritchie Valens covers for the soundtrack to the film “La Bamba.” Their version of the title track became a No. 1 hit for the band.
