El Chicano

Support 88Nine And This Artist:

An East L.A Mexican-American band who started out on the circuit as the V.I.P.’s in the late 60s, El Chicano signed to Kapp Records and had a Billboard top 40 instrumental hit in 1970 with a Latin Rock reworking of Gerald Wilson’s Viva Tirado. While they've had numerous lineup changes through the decades, the initial band members in their early 70's heyday included the late Bobby Espinosa (keyboards/vocals), Mickey Lespron (guitar/vocals), Freddie Sanchez (bass/vocals), and Andre Baeza and John De Luna (percussion).
