After much popular demand, and along with the success of the "Rocking the Barrio" and "The Original Cannibal & The Headhunters~Land of 1000 Dances" CD's, (still a few available), RAMPART RECORDS proudly announces the re-release of the powerful 1995 classic album "LAVA & THE HOTROCKS~ YOU MEXICANS ARE TOO DAMN LOUD" now on CD. Digitally re-mastered and including all the original artwork, photos, and lyrics. Produced by Emmy Award winner Jimmy Velarde and featuring Emmy award winner Hector Gonzalez at bass and the dynamic Lava Gonzalez at lead vocals, this CD sold out shortly after it's first release in 1995, and is now one of the classics of west coast Chicano rock.

After much popular demand,the pride of the San Fernando Valley, THE COMPANY BAND, featuring the beautiful "Diamond of the Valley", MS BECKY CORDOVA, finally makes it to L.A.'s San Gabriel Valley on Friday March 30th, when they land at CAMACHO's in the City of Industry for a one night stand. Come out and see what Frankie Firme, Steven Chavez, LatinoLA, and Ray "Maloman" Roybal have been ranting & raving about for the last 2 years! for more info: www.souvenirent.com or www.thecompanyband-tcb.com .

Frankie Firme hosts an all star line up featuring MARVIN & JOHNNY, THE COASTERS, GRADY CHAPMAN of the ROBINS, BILLY CORMIER & the IMPOSTERS Band, and the OLD MEMORIES CAR CLUB Sunday, April 1st, at the Montebello Inn. Starting at 12 noon, the show will highlight classic R & B peformances from "back in the day"(not the caca you hear today), while bringing a message of "Peace in the street", hoping help quell the violence that kills more young Latinos & Blacks than war and cancer combined. Other classic car clubs have been invited, and all models are welcome!

Incoming e-mails reflect a growing reading & listening audience for LatinoLA and the East L.A. Revue Internet Radio Jukebox in Spain, England, and Japan.
Congratulations to Mr. Abelardo de la Pena and Steven Chavez for ALL YOU DO!
