On August 12th join us for a screening of La Bamba and party down with the Viva La Bamba Band before the movie.

La Bamba Dreams are made of rock and roll with La Bamba and pre-show melodies supplied by Viva La Bamba Band on Saturday, August 12, 2017. The life of rock & roll legend Ritchie Valens bursts across the screen in the highly celebrated music-filled biopic La Bamba, starring Lou Diamond Phillips (Young Guns, Che) as the teenage sensation whose rise to fame was tragically cut short at the age of 17. Phillips gives an electrifying performance as Valens, who has to contend with racial prejudice, a jealous brother (a stunningly intense Esai Morales – NYPD Blue, Caprica) and an overbearing mother, before his unique style of Latino-influenced rock & roll rockets him to fame, but sets him on the path for an unavoidable date with destiny. Featuring music from Grammy Award winning rock band Los Lobos, and also starring Elizabeth Peña (Jacob’s Ladder, Down and Out in Beverly Hills), director Luis Valdez’s La Bamba is an irresistibly toetapping depiction of the early days of American rock music, and the indelible influence one young man had upon it.

Made up of members of popular San Fernando Valley bands, Viva La Bamba Band is the signature tribute act when it comes to the music of Ritchie Valens, Buddy Holly, The Big Bopper, and Los Lobos! Performing a show that will take you right back to the '50s, and recreating the music of the La Bamba film, you will be amazed at the authenticity, soul, and rhythm!
