Biography

Concepción, Chile (1982 – 2000, 2006 – present)

Los Tres is a rock band from Concepción, Chile. Band members are Álvaro Henríquez (vocals and guitar), Ángel Parra (guitar, lapsteel and backing vocals), Roberto Lindl (bass, double bass and accordion) and Francisco Molina (drums and percussion). Their first album was released in 1991.

In 1982, three guys from Concepción, Álvaro Henríquez, Roberto Titae Lindl, and Pancho Molina started a band called Los Dick Stones, whose set list was based on songs by Chuck Berry, Elvis Presley, and Gene Vincent. They quickly became very popular in universities, bars, and peñas around the southern city of Concepción. Given their ambition to achieve success in the Chilean mainstream, they decided to move to the capital city of Santiago and changed their name to Los Tres. In 1988 Ángel Parra joined the band and even though Los Tres is Spanish for “the three”, they decided to keep the name.

During years when culture and art began to rise again -after the cultural and night life had been reduced for almost 20 years due to the military regime that had ruled Chile since 1973-, the times were right for their music to develop and their popularity to grow. They recorded 9 albums during their first stage together, from 1982 until 2000.

In 2000 the band went into an indefinite break and its members continued their musical careers in personal projects.

On 2006 Los Tres, with the exception of Pancho Molina, announced their reunion including a show in May, the festival Vive Latino in Mexico City, and a show in Santiago de Chile.
