LOS FURIOS (Latin/ska/reggae/punk) from Vancouver!

Los Furios is a 6-piece Latin ska band from Vancouver. Their music is broadly influenced and in their repertoire as you can find such other styles like rocksteady, punk, and reggae. Their music portrays different concepts, among them unity, love, and respect. Fans refer to their shows and presence as ³a party on stage²; with high-energy Latin breakdowns, catchy punk choruses, and reggae/ska jams thrown about their songs. That all said, you are sure to shake some booty, cheer some beers, and sing a few lines during their set. Los Furios completed another Canadian tour in September 2004 teaming up to play shows with ska greats such as the Pietasters, The Toasters, The Planet Smashers. Their new album Warning Shot is getting rave reviews all over Canada and the US. They have been greeted with warm receptions each and every place they have played. Ska with the spicy feel of Latin music…
