Richard Bean & Sapo features former members of Malo & Dos
Richard Bean & Sapo features former members of Malo & Dos with a Latin Jazz & Latin Rock flavor all their own! Dance to Mr. Suavecito!
Sapo was formed by Bean in the mid-’70s after his days as a timbale player with Malo came to an end (not necessarily on his own terms). Having written “Suavecito” (which he’s often heard referred to as “the Mexican national anthem”) and numerous other songs, Bean was looking for more of a frontman role.
Sapo’s lineup has fluctuated several times over the years and gone through some periods of hiatus. Despite all that, Bean has maintained a visible touring presence for more than 30 years, still playing shows alongside the likes of Carlos and Jorge Santana, and other prominent figures on Bay Area Latin rock lore.
His Latin Rock band Sapo is still fiercely popular with three decades of loyal fans. Playing everything from their standard Chicano favorites to the classics like Suavecito and others.
