A stellar line up of well known musicians occupy all of the Tremoloco recordings, a who's who of California/Texas roots music including Dave Alvin, Cindy Cashdollar, David Hidalgo, Cougar Estrada (Los Lobos), Red Volkaert, Los Tex Maniacs, Joel Guzman, Rick Shea and many more.....
Mexican groove and swing:
"The Los Angeles/Houston/Louisiana band Tremoloco play a singular blend of Mexican and American roots music, delivering original songs in Spanish and English that draw on a promiscuously diverse array of musical traditions including Nashville twang and Louisiana bayou grooves, New Orleans R&B, Delta blues, rancheros, cumbias and Tex-Mex romps, the band’s recently released fourth album “Deseo” paints a series of vivid, dance-inducing portraits, sometimes humorous, sometimes historical, and always well-crafted. With Tony Zamora as songwriter/singer/multi-instrumentalist Tremoloco features a veteran cast of players with an impressive roster of credits."
