Carlos Vega drummer

The 10th Annual Carlos Vega Memorial Birthday Concert

Saturday December 8, 2007

Musician's Institute
1665 McCadden Place
Hollywood, CA

Every year, some of the greatest singers and musicians here on the West Coast come together to pay musical tribute to our long lost friend and drummer extrordinaire Carlos Vega. By getting together to play and remember Los, we have fun and make some great music. People come from all over the world and usually some of Carlos's family and friends attend as well.

Long Live Los!
