Biography

The Carlos Ecos Band was formed in 2003 to collectively produce “a new kind of music” that can be summed up in just one word: “Latin America”! It does more than describe the interesting blend of Latin music and Rock/Blues but spells out the emotion you’ll experience from their music. This interesting fusion of Latin and Blues music is created by front-man Carlos Ecos (vocalist & lead guitarist), Billy Little (bass guitarist), Pete Degloma (keyboards), and Brian Aylor (Drums - Percussion).

Carlos Ecos pools his energies from his rich Peruvian heritage and vast influence of where he grew up…Memphis, TN. As a child, he was fascinated by Memphis Music.

“My parents listened to Elvis, The Beatles, Swing and Latin music around the house. My dad would have parties and play a lot of Salsas and Brazilian music, so that’s where I was exposed to all these different Latin rhythms, styles, grooves and great music”.

“But when I heard B.B. King – “The Thrill is Gone” – that did it! His emotion, the way he’s crying out his vocals and answering with his guitar, that really an affect on me and gave me a direction. Also, Buddy Guy, Muddy, Howlin’ Wolf, who is from here, and Stevie Ray Vaughan were big influences”.
