In a musical landscape littered with “genreless” artists, Los Lobos stand out as fusionist pioneers with an undying love of experimentation. Rising out of ’70s-era East LA with a repertoire that blurred blues, roots and Mexican folkloric sounds, the group scored a Grammy before their major label debut (1984’s How Will the Wolf Survive?) and reached the masses in 1987 with a chart-topping cover of Ritchie Valens’ classic “La Bamba.”

Touted by critics for their surreal 1992 album Kiko, the band returns to Gruene Hall for an evening sure to be peppered with eclectic favorites spanning four decades, along with hidden gems from their latest (2015’s Gates of Gold) and hopefully the whimsical 2009 tribute Los Lobos Goes Disney. Fans can help shape Thursday’s set list by requesting songs at loslobos.org.



$35, Thursday, November 9, 8pm, Gruene Hall, 1281 Gruene Road, New Braunfels, (830) 606-1281, gruenehall.com.
