About The Hidalgos

Moe's Alley welcomes THE HIDALGOS featuring David Hidalgo of Los Lobos for a very special intimate performance performing as a trio with his sons David Hidalgo Jr. of Social Distortion on drums, & Vincent Hidalgo on bass. Special guests THE BACKYARD BLUES BAND featuring Mario Valens (brother of Ritchie Valens) opens the show starting at 8pm so come early and don't miss a beat.

As lead guitarist and vocalist of the legendary East LA band Los Lobos, Hidalgo has been a creative force straddling the border of rock, R&B, cumbia, Tex-Mex and country for four decades.

Hidalgo's songs have been covered by the Jerry Garcia Band, Waylon Jennings, Bonnie Raitt and others. He has performed in Eric Clapton's Crossroads Guitar Festival since its inception in 2004, most recently in April 2013 at Madison Square Garden with Los Lobos. Eric Clapton joined the band on stage for their song "Burn It Down" off of their latest album, Tin Can Trust. His son, David Hidalgo, Jr. is the current drummer for Social Distortion.

In addition to his work with Los Lobos, Hidalgo frequently plays musical instruments such as accordion, violin, 6-string banjo, cello, requinto jarocho, percussion, drums and guitar as a session musician on other artists' releases.
