Continuing to play by their own rules, LA 45 has released the single “Como Me Alegro” just weeks after the release of their live concert album celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Latin Breed titled, Take It To The Top!
Written by Grammy Award-winning songwriter Chente Barrera, “Como Me Alegro” marks the first time the band has overseen every step of production completely on their own. The track was arranged, recorded, amd mixed at their newly minted 45 HQ studios, and mastered by legendary 14-time Grammy Award winner, Gilbert Velasquez.
LA 45 has once again brought the classic Chicano sound to life with the groove and vibe of today! “Como Me Alegro” is now available on all digital platforms.
The band has been rolling through 2019 at full speed with no signs of slowing down! After a packed year of touring in promotion of their debut EP, LA 45 is wasting no time in 2019.
On February 24 they released their live concert tribute album to their musical heroes, the iconic Chicano band, The Latin Breed in celebration of the Breed’s 50th anniversary. The concert experience was produced by legendary radio personality and Tejano music industry icon Henry “Pepsi” Peña, and was recorded on December 2, 2018, to a sold out, capacity crowd at Pueblo hall in San Antonio, Texas. Containing many “B-side” fan favorites as well as classic hits from the band’s extensive catalog, the album is a must-have for Tejano music lovers of every generation!
Formed in 2017, LA 45 is a 10 piece Orquesta based in San Antonio, Texas. Performing a blend of traditional Mexican-American music with jazz, rock & roll, and R&B, the band is the next wave of the Onda Chicana popularized in the 1970s. Led by two former members of the seminal Chicano band, Little Joe y La Familia, LA 45 is made up of the top young talent in San Antonio. The group is currently on tour promoting their latest single, and the forthcoming sophomore album due out in summer 2019.
