For the 11-piece Boogaloo Assassins the mission is simple: bring la gente a funky good time, Latin-soul style. Formed in Los Angeles in 2007, Boogaloo Assassins are the West Coast’s answer to New York City’s Latin music explosion of the late 1960s. Heavily indebted to the classic sounds of Spanish Harlem, Los Asesinos serve up their own late 1960’s-style salsa and “Latin Boogaloo”, best described as a raucous fusion of American R&B with Afro-Cuban rhythms, sung in both English and Spanish. Known for their high-energy live shows, Boogaloo Assassins' debut recording "Old Love Dies Hard" features their hit single "No No No", a salsa version of the blues/reggae classic, and has been featured on Gilles Peterson's BBC-1, and Los Angeles's KCRW. In 2014, Boogaloo Assassins have hit both the road and the recording studio with new rock'n'roll phenom Nick Waterhouse, and will be celebrating iconic latin music label FANIA RECORDS 50th Anniversary with a series performances in the home of Latin Boogaloo, New York City.
