Thanks Are Due

This website is dedicated to the memory of Louie Stetzel, longtime Los Lobos "front of house" soundman and unparalleled friend of the tapers.
Louie sadly passed away in December 2000, following a long and valiant battle with cancer. Mas y Mas Holmes!

First and foremost, I wish to thank Los Lobos for all these years of amazing music, for their willingness to let tapers do their thing, and for being such all around great guys. I also wish to thank the following crew members for their past and continued assistance in furthering the archiving cause: John Burwick, Rick Deputy, Andy Ireland, Mando Tavares, and Tony Zamora. Tremendous thanks are also due to my wife Cheryl for her limitless love and impressive tolerance of my obsessions.

Thanks are due to Mark "Krazyfish" Troutman and Tom Hambleton for their HTML programming assistance while I was creating this site and to Kerry Barbato for hosting the site and helping to keep things up and running over the years. I also wish to acknowledge Ken Young for his invaluable assistance in creating the Discography section of the site and to Steve Jochmann for creating and running "The Neighborhood" discussion forum (http://www.jabfela.net).

Never-ending praise is due to the following "road warriors" for going way above the call of duty to continually record shows and/or provide setlists for the cause: Mike and Karen Chrzan, Adam Goldberg, Roman "Bear Hunter" Herrera, Mark and Jeri Hover, Steve Jochmann, Valerie Jones, David "Tuggboatt" Lovine, Steve McCracken, Patrick and Ruth Malone, Jonathan Meyer, Ric Ovalle, John Shields, John "Monstruo" Skeels, and Rick and Cathy Yates.

The following list of folks have contributed tapes, CDs, setlists, scanned images and other information which are the backbone of the site. I've done my best to remember everybody but inevitably have forgotten a few people, for which I am sorry but still very grateful (send me a reminder and I'll add you to the list). Thanks a ton to everybody who has contributed, is contributing, and/or will contribute in the future - I can't do it without you. °Viva la Raza!
