Los Lobos (Live Concert)
Time: 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Location: Waterville Opera House, 1 Common Street, Waterville, ME 04901

Los Lobos were already East L.A. neighborhood legends, Sunset Strip regulars and a Grammy Award winning band (Best Mexican-American/Tejano Music Performance) by the time they recorded their major label debut How Will The Wolf Survive? in 1984. Perez, the band’s drummer, 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, a worldwide smash single (“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. Tickets: $50 Orchestra, $45 1st Balcony, $40 2nd BalconyTickets can be purchased on location from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday, over the phone at 207-873-7000, or online at http://www.operahouse.org.
