‘To play or not to play?’
Tis a question oft asked by Spiel.
Whether tis gracious to stomp ones foot in celebration or in protest, the result is quite the same … ball bouncing, titty tickling “Rockin Space Blues” of the finest order.
To be certain … engaging with the men of Spiel ensures an experience that is a sense-ational journey. With Spiel at the helm, you will be transported from a state of seductive spinal massage to an ass puckering power shot of adrenaline then back again. more Spiel
What is a Pocho? One who lacks proficiency in Spanish but is of Mexican descent. So with that out of the way who are Los Pochos?
Los Pochos is a three Spanish guitar and vocal collaboration born in Venice Beach, CA. Band members Isaac Irvin (from El Paso, Texas), Michael Jost (from Frankfurt, Germany) and Rick Boston (from Alberta, Canada) started playing together in Venice for fun, but soon were being asked to play at parties and art shows.
Isaac Irvin sings in Spanish and English and this combination makes for a great blend of Tex Mex and south of the border vocals. Michael Jost is an accomplished flamenco and rock guitarist and is also a record producer with his own eclectic Radio Venice weekly internet broadcast. Rick Boston is a multi instrumentalist, musician, film composer and record producer, now enamored with his Spanish gut string guitar.
With Mexican rock songs such as Negra Tomasa and Cuban traditional El Quarta de Tula the three pochos dig into these Latin sounds with the fun of a Manu Chao but the instrumental skill of a Gypsy King. Well, almost!
