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!
Introducing Japa’s latest musical incarnation…”Totopo Loco”!
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!
