The best kept secret in music


"Los Blancos Rocks The Big Easy!"

“Los Blancos’ eclectic mix of material is right up this city’s alley. It’s a blues band to be sure, but there are also moments of Latin Jazz, Tex-Mex, Soul, and Rhythm and Blues. You know these guys are on the right track!” - Gambit Weekly, New Orleans, LA

"PA Digs Los Blancos!"

“Los Blancos delivers one of the most diverse sets I have ever heard. Blues, R&B, Latin, Rock, and a touch of Jazz blending effortlessly... Los Blancos’ range of style is nothing short of phenomenal. Their last performance at Franco’s rated among the greatest shows I’ve ever seen. No doubt about it...these guys are GOOD!”

- Billtown Blue Notes-PA

"Even Lake Country Knows Los Blancos!"

"Much like NRBQ this is a band that completely owns an audience. Los Blancos is packed solid with musical ammo...this disc is a whole lotta fun!"

- Minnesota Blues On Stage

"Woodstock Gets It!"

“***** 5 out of 5 Stars...the band plays hot blues, funk, and rock riffs...and plays Latin-flavored blues-rock with a flair that would make Santana proud. Aberdeen’s vocals are from the gut and full of emotion and passion...and the rhythm section cranks along with a powerful beat.” - The Daily Freeman- Woodstock NY

"The One and Only Red Dog Tips His Hat To Los Blancos"

“The most impressive debut this reviewer has heard, or expects to hear for some time. I am reminded of my first impression of the band Little Feat...this disc redefines the term ‘breakout recording’.” - Mike “Red Dog” Downes, Blues Connection Magazine

Feeling a bit camera shy


Making music that spans style and time…
They've been compared to Little Feat, The Allman Brothers, The Radiators, Taj Mahal,
The Band, The Grateful Dead, and countless other breeders of the Roots. On any given night Los Blancos rips through Blues, Memphis Soul, Rockin' Zydeco, Latin, Outlaw Country, Funk, Folk, and a dozen other styles. Born from decades of dues in the hands of a band that plays/writes from the heart, Los Blancos doesn’t just cross the line between genres, they soak it in tequila and Torch It!!!
Enter Colin Aberdeen, an honest voice and heartfelt guitars. Whether he’s beltin’ out the blues, or melting the ladies with a little sweet soul music, Aberdeen is an original. His confident, emotion-filled vocals will wrap around you like your mama’s arms and just make you feel good. And we mean Damn good! Colin will bring down the house when he’s slingin’ that slide on the guitar, too! A true-blue artisan of the roots.
Keyboard angles are covered by the inimitable Mark Nanni. His versatility is unmatchable, his passion on the keys, undeniable. From solo gigs, to band leader, to first-call side man, Nanni has done it all. He is equally at home on piano, churnin’ and burnin’ Leslie organ, or any other board including one bad-ass accordion! His jazz sensibility, intense vocals, and improvisational freedom add a heapin’ helping of color and spice to the Los Blancos stew.
Rhythms are injected by drummer Mark Tiffault, & bassist Steven T. Winston. Tiffault spent years touring with John Lee Hooker, The Kingsnakes, and most recently with Handy Award winner Carey Bell. A roots rock master who can dig it up like Zig, or lay it down like Stubbs, Mark's spirited, soulful playing create the back-beat bed.
Filling out the blessed bottom is the big fat bass of Steven T. Winston. Having been a collaborator on countless gigs around the region, he has the experience and taste to know what fits, no matter what the style. Never content to just bomb the bootyshakin’ bass, Steven T. is a great, burly, bear of a singer, too! These two can go chooglin’ on down like a 2 mile freight train, or float through a bubblin’ stone soul GROOVE!
Downhome harmony and meaty material make this perennially award-winning band a gumbo FEAST for your ears. Best known for their intoxicating live shows, Los Blancos is on the move, move, MOVE!!!
