On this week’s Sunday Night Concert, we’ll be featuring a very special performance from Los Lobos. Nowadays, the band is tried and true having established themselves all around the world for their electric performances and diverse songbook.

Unbeknownst to the band at the time, the record would go on to become a classic that helped spike the fanfare Los Lobos received.
This Sunday Night Concert will feature Moby’s performance from the 2005 XRT Free 4th of July Concert at Taste of Chicago. Originally broadcast live, Moby’s performance at the Taste of Chicago was voted the 9th best concert in the 2005 XRT listener poll.
