“Roots, Blues, Funk & Zydeco Guaranteed To Fill A Hole In Your Soul.”

“Los Blancos' eclectic mix of material is right up this city's alley. It's a blues band to be sure, but there are also moments of Latin Jazz, Tex-Mex, Soul, and Rhythm and Blues.
You know these guys are on the right track!”
The Gambit Weekly-New Orleans, LA

 

"Like most great working bands, Los Blancos know the blues well,
but shine in a variety of roots based styles."
Daren Dortin, NPR's Beale Street Caravan

“Just This Once deserves many spins! Los Blancos are Mucho Terrificos in our book!

What a terrific album that is!"
Dave Johnson, Blues Deluxe

“More fun than an inflatable doll.”
Tom Townsley, WAER FM, Blues Review Magazine

A stellar record of direct support shows for Little Feat, Los Lobos, Gov't Mule, The Derek Trucks Band, moe., Dickey Betts & Great Southern, and many, many, more!

Los Blancos rips through Blues, Soul, Rockin' Zydeco, Latin, Outlaw Country, Heavy-One Funk, Folk, and a bottomless bag of tricks that's always sure to get the party started. Over more than a decade they've rocked thousands of shows, and tens of thousands of miles, reveling in a genuine passion for what they do. A crew of troubadour craftsmen and kindred souls who have joined forces for the long haul, and for the love of music.

Whether he's beltin' out the blues, or melting the ladies with a little sweet soul music, Colin Aberdeen is an original. His honest voice and heartfelt guitars will wrap around you like your mama's arms and just make you feel good. And we mean Damn Good! Colin will bring down the house when he's slingin' that slide on the guitar, too, a true-blue artisan of the roots.

Rhythms are injected by drummer Mark Tiffault, & bassist Steven T. Winston. Tiffault spent time touring with John Lee Hooker, The Kingsnakes, and most recently with Handy Award winner Carey Bell. Road seasoned chops and spirited playing create the kind of backbeat rhythm that drive right through your soul. Filling out the blessed bottom is the big, fat, bass of Steven T. Winston.
He has the experience and taste to know what fits, no matter what the style. Never content to just lay down the bootyshakin' bass, Steven T. is a great, burly, bear of a singer, too! These guys can go chooglin' on down like a 2 mile freight train, or float on a stone soul GROOVE.

Back porch harmony, a live intensity that can't be denied, and a massive, ever-evolving, melting pot of music, make Los Blancos a band that will stick with you for a long, long time.
