Los Lobos Rocks CSUS

Three-time Grammy-winners Los Lobos will shake up California State University, Sacramento with its legendary Latin rock sound at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, May 3.

The concert, held in the CSUS University Union Ballroom, will also feature Northern California's own all-female mariachi group - Mariachi Femenil Las Aguilas - and the Latino inspired guitars rhythms of Rondalla Sentimiento Romantico.

Los Lobos has been recording critically acclaimed albums and film soundtracks for nearly 25 years and the band continues to break ground in both Spanish and English-language music, effortlessly crossing cultural and language divides.

David Hidalgo, Cesar Rosas, Louie Perez, and Conrad Lozano are all founding members of the band that was formed in the early 1970s. Steve Berlin and Victor Bissetti were added several years later.

Later this month, Los Lobos will receive a lifetime achievement award from Billboard magazine at the Latin Music Awards. The Billboard Latin Music Awards will be held at the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami on April 26th and will be broadcast on April 29th on the Telemundo Network.

Tickets for the CSUS concert are $18 general admission and $12 for students. Tickets can be purchased at the CSUS Ticket Office at (916) 278-4323 or at Tickets.com, (916) 766-2277. Media assistance is available by contacting the CSUS office of public affairs at (916) 278-6156.
