Our next September Ultimate Ears Artist to Watch is Grammy Nominated Latino band, Locos Por Juana. They are not nearly as well known as they should be probably because they play a style that defies labels and boundaries. Although they are all Latino, they mix English and Spanish in their songs. They blend reggae, big brass, rock and Latino Caribbean influences. And the result is an instant party. We were lucky enough to see them perform last month and they had everyone in the audience up and dancing throughout the whole show. Their music is infectious and fun and absolutely enjoyable. And thankfully – they are brave enough to defy traditions and norms and create something totally unique and their own.
And oh yeah – did everyone get a chance to read the latest “Behind the Music” interview with Donovan Haney – Manager of the Expendables. This is a brilliant look at what it takes to make a tour function.
