    I'm a fanatic, and I don't know how I hadn't come across this show from about one year ago. Set aside 90 minutes and DIG the greatest band in America, Daddios:

    Where Steve? Please tell me he’s still with the band?

    HAH! Yes, I just saw them last weekend, and Steve Berlin is still VERY much in the band. Not sure what the deal was with this show, but I also once saw them without Cesar, if you can believe that. Anyway, I assure you, all is well!

    Love them. I got to see them around ‘84 at the Golden Bear in Huntington Beach, CA. Great long lost small venue to see good bands.

    I totally agree! Check ANY other band and they've peaked ~10 years in and become shadows of what they were; tribute bands to themselves...

    Not LL! Last album was superb! We're talking 40 years in and still creating vibrant new music! Un heard of!

    Yeah, for me the best American band. Ever.

    I'll have to give it a look; horrendously under rated over here.

    Yep they deserve a bigger slice of fame, not like these canaries that sing like someone is pulling out their feathers.

    Every year I find one month where all I listen to is Los Lobos.

    Incredible songwriting, guitar playing and singing.....but this video should be sent to EVERY soundman everywhere, to demonstrate where the bass should sit in the mix. Of course, I don't know how it sounded there live, but what got recorded on this video is PERFECT. Very "old school", IMHO. The bass is THERE, without that throbbing, bowel-shaking low end. Greatest band in America?......Greatest band ANYWHERE!!!! ;)

    They certainly are one of our greatest bands ever!! When Sandra Rosa's was murdered, in 1999, Cesar was out for about 6 weeks or more. It was such a tragedy.....

    I very much enjoy their performances of songs in Spanish. They've repeatedly done wonderful jobs of fusing pop with some traditional songs. It is pretty unique and interesting.

    As for their mainstream music, I really thought "Will the Wolf Survive" was excellent. Their other stuff just hasn't connected with me.

    Absolutely one of the greatest bands ever. They have it all, chops, soul, range, good songwriting, sense of the past but not standing still.

    They could stand to lay off the donuts though

    Been playing this song in my band for years. This video shows how tight the band is. They understand dynamics.

    Nice high quality video. I'm missing Steve... I think he is to LL what Scott Thurston was to The Heartbreakers.
