July 10--Los Lobos, one of the most praised and respected American bands of the past 30 years, will open the 2014-2015 Riverside Live concert series in Rochester, it has been confirmed.

The band, which formed in the 1970s in East Los Angeles and has recorded in both Spanish and English, will perform Oct. 4 at Mayo Civic Center. Los Lobos is known more for compelling albums than hit singles but did go to No. 1 on the charts in 1987 with the title song from the movie "La Bamba."
