Roman, Japa and Paul at Todos Santos Brewing 5th Anniversary Show, Todos Santos B.C.S.
The first gig in the new incarnation was a huge success, leaving everyone screaming for more. Luckily, more is on the way! Join us in El Centenario on Sunday, July 3rd for food, fun and fantastic music with your favorite band – Totopo Loco!
April, 2022 – “Too Many Brake Lights”, a new song by Japa, co-written with David Harper, is selected as a winner by The West Coast Songwriters, qualifying her to participate in the yearly final event which will be held in July at the Freight and Salvage in Berkeley, California.
Since the band was reunited after a brief summer hiatus, the trio worked hard (while pissing off the neighbors with amplified outdoor rehearsals) getting their chops up and songs ready. Since then it has been a flurry of gigging activity through the holidays and beyond! Shows have included appearances at Cerritos Cantina, Plaza Amigos, and two private birthday parties. Rock on!
In the spring of 2021, Japa teamed up with punk rock surfers Mike Colacino (drums) and Rich Bennett (bass) to form a rock’n’roll power trio that’s taking the Baja peninsula by storm! Original rock and classic covers that keep you wanting more!
So far we’ve only performed at a couple local house parties, but momentum is building! and yes – we already have T-shirts!
