Los Fabulocos - New Album 'Dos' - Available Today

Dos is the highly-seasoned second helping by white-hot Cali-Mex quartet, Los Fabulocos, also featuring the jaw-dropping guitar work of the infamous Kid Ramos.  With this, the band’s sophomore release, the band showcase a considerable maturity and versatility, serving a tantalizing combo platter of vintage rock ‘n’ roll interspersed with intensely energized and spicy Latin rhythms guaranteed to turn the heat up faster than a bowl of fire-roasted habanero salsa!

Established in 2004 when its two founding members - singer/accordionist Jesus Cuevas and drummer Mike Molina, formerly of the East Los Angeles roots-rock band The Blazers, joined forces with bassist James Barrios.  Barrios brought his passion for Bakersfield country to the recipe – a musical gumbo that was already simmering. When the final ingredient of blues guitarist Kid Ramos was added to the mix in 2007, the carefully crafted, home-brewed stew had unquestionably reached a boiling point.
Fast-forward to 2008, when the band signed with Delta Groove Music to release their self-titled debut. The band’s unique brand of “Cali-Mex” was immediately embraced and praised by critics in newspapers and publications such as the Music Connection, La Opinion, OC Register, Houston Press and El Paso Times. As word of mouth spread, the band began to expand their touring base with frequent stops in Texas, including Houston, El Paso, and San Antonio, and as far off as places like Oslo, Norway.  Since their vibrant introduction to the music world just two short years ago, Los Fabulocos have developed a dedicated following enticed by their Southwestern blend of blues, zydeco, ‘50s rock ‘n’ roll, rhythm & blues, and traditional Mexican music.
