In July 2012, Los Po-Boy-Citos gathered in a house in the Lower Ninth Ward to write new songs for an album. At the end of the month they spent four days recording at Matt’s house with engineer Andrija Tokic. Later John Gros (of Papa Grows Funk) and Tom McDermott put down some organ and piano, and then Matt and Jason went to Nashville to mix the album at Andrija’s studio, the Bomb Shelter, where Dan had recorded with Hurray For the Riff Raff. The CD Hasta was released in April 2013. Los Po-Boy-Citos has recorded two previous CDs, Brand New Dance and New Orleans Latin Soul , and a 45rpm record.

“The band’s horns vamp like the Rebirth Brass Band caught in a tangle of percussion…”- The Times Picayune

“A swear-breaking blast of snaps, handclaps and group-sung shouts…”- Gambit Weekly

“The snappy ‘Long Way Home’ sounds like it has been around forever…”- Offbeat

Los Po-Boy-Citos has played every major festival and venue in New Orleans, including Jazz Fest and French Quarter Fest, Tipitina’s and House of Blues. They have opened for Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Grupo Fantasma, Tower of Power, Rebirth Brass Band, and more.
