Listen to Long Way Home (Back To New Orleans)

Los Po-Boy-Citos are New Orleans best, and only, boogaloo band:

*2010 Gambit Weekly Best of the Big Easy WINNERS (Best Latin)
*2009 Gambit Weekly Best of the Big Easy WINNERS (Best Latin Band)
*2008 OffBeat Best of the Beat WINNERS (Best Emerging Band)

Los Po-Boy-Citos has recorded two CDs, *Brand New Dance* (2010) and *New Orleans Latin Soul* (2008), and a 45rpm record (2009) that mix Latin soul with New Orleans funk:

"The band’s horns vamp like the Rebirth Brass Band caught in a tangle of percussion…"
- The Times-Picayune

"A sweat-breaking blast of snaps, handclaps and group-sung shouts…"
- Gambit Weekly

"The snappy 'Long Way Home' sounds like it has been around forever…"
- OffBeat

Los Po-Boy-Citos has played every major festival and venue in New Orleans, including Jazz Fest and French Quarter Fest, Tipitina’s and House of Blues. They have opened for Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Grupo Fantasma, Tower of Power, Dr. John, and the Rebirth Brass Band.

In 2012, audiences outside of New Orleans will finally be able to hear the band, as they travel to SXSW in Austin, Le Poisson Rouge in New York, and beyond.
