Los Lobos Taping Set List

For 40 years, Los Lobos has been making great rock and roll music with depth that transcends genres. As we hit the 40th year milestone ourselves, we were thrilled to have them return to the Austin City Limits stage.

During our shared four decades, Los Lobos has wowed the ACL audience four times with their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and mexican music which the band calls “the soundtrack of the barrio.” Forty years, multiple Grammys, numerous worldwide smash singles and thousands of rollicking performances across the globe later, Los Lobos is still jamming with the same raw intensity as they had when they began in 1973. Their fifth appearance on ACL is something to remember.

The East L.A. band honored its 40th anniversary with the 2013 live album Disconnected in New York City, which The Telegraph calls “a sweet reminder of their talent.” Magnet writes that the album “shows the band’s history, talent and diversity with heartland rock, folk excursions, shuffling R&B and inevitable Latin rave-outs from many different points of its amazing career.”

Los Lobos’ sound has grown as the band members have matured, encompassing both their personal and cultural histories while being firmly routed in the present. Rolling Stone writes, “This is what happens when five guys creat a magical sound, then stick together…to see how far it can take them.”
