Lowriders in the Mission
hello world!

Born In

The Mission

"Fresh and unfettered, without pretense and unironic.”
Los Mocosos grew up in Mission District, steeped in 1970’s Bay Area Latin Rock, lowriders, and the Chicano civil rights movement. Their first album, “Mocos Locos”, became an underground barrio classic that propelled the band into the limelight; touring with Santana, Los Lobos, the Latin Warped Tour, and lifting the spirits of festival-goers across the country.
Known for their ability to traverse musical and cultural barriers, Los Mocosos (loosely translated, the snotty-nosed brats, albeit a term of endearment) cleverly weave together rock, reggae, funk, ska, and salsa to deliver their message. The result is subversive, conscious, party music that pays homage to an earlier era.

Their new single, “United We Stand,” addresses the blatant authoritarianism plaguing the streets and pushes back against police brutality, immigrant persecution, deportation, racism, and protest turbulence.

“The next generation of Raza rockers, Los Mocosos take up where Santana left off, playing soulful funk and concious hip-hop.”
Miami New Times
“In a creative throwback to '60s - '70s Chicano/Latino funk and soul, Los Mocosos reminds us what pure party music is all about.”
San Diego Union Tribune
“In an era when every city block has its own sub-genre, this band is a living testament to the magic that can happen when you break down barriers instead of erecting them.”
