Once upon a time, Los Lobos was just another band from East L.A.

More than 30 years since releasing their debut album, the Wolves have become one of the foremost Latin music bands around.

Since 1984, the Grammy Award-winning band has had the same lineup, helping to perfect its wide-reaching blend of traditional regional Mexican folk music like cumbia and boleros, rock and roll, blues, R&B, and country — plus a killer version of “La Bamba,” for the 1987 Ritchie Valens biopic.

On July 8, Los Lobos brings its stellar live act to the Prospect Park band shell for Celebrate Brooklyn, where the forefathers of Chicano rock will be joined by some of the new guard on Latin rock scene: Mexico City’s Hello Seahorse! and, from around these parts, electro rockers Zigmat.

And then, the wolves will howl.

Los Lobos at Celebrate Brooklyn at the Prospect Park band shell [Ninth Street and Prospect Park West in Park Slope, (718) 683-5600], July 8 at 7 pm. Free. For info, visit
