“Welcome to the world of Los Mocosos!" Yes, the snot-nosed rascals from San Francisco's Mission district are back after a 15 year hiatus and ready to bring you more funky Latin Grooves.
From the land of Santana, Malo and War, the group came to prominence back in 1999 with the support of Aztlan Records, the first Spanish language rock label in the country, which put out the band's acclaimed 1998 debut, Mocos Locos.
If America still prides itself on being a melting pot, then this just might be the ultimate American band. It’s an America that Los Mocosos have seen a lot of; they’ve toured with Los Lobos and played San Francisco’s Stern Grove, Washingon’s Kennedy Center, and New York’s Central Park. They received a California Music Award (for Outstanding Latin Album), and were part of the groundbreaking compilation Escena Alterlatina: The Future Sound In Español,’ the only Latin rock compilation to ever crack the Billboard Latin charts. And just before releasing their third album on Six Degrees Records, they toured, perhaps inevitably, with Santana.
Founded by Happy Sanchez (bass) and Victor Castro (trombone), Los Mocosos now feature the bilingual sung verses of 36 year old lead singer Juan Ele Perez. Perez adds much flavor to a sound drenched in the influences of 1970s Latin soul groove bands like Joe Bataan and Pucho & His Latin Soul Brothers. Whether you understand Spanglish or not, these are cool cruising sounds for hot summer days.
