Las Rosas are tres hombres. That's ZZ Top for three dudes. Jose Boyer is a Mexican from Mexico. He used to play bass in a band called Harlem who had a pretty cool LP on a pretty cool label called Matador. After going on a psychedelic journey brought on by consuming some bad shellfish he decided that he was done with bass and wanted to play guitar and sing. He immediately called up his long-time musical collaborator and relaxation aficionado, Christopher "Fort" Lauderdale and asked him if he wanted hit some drums. He did. Still in need of a bassist Jose and Christopher scoured OK Cupid for nearly 45 minutes. That's when they came upon Jose Aybar. Even though he was Dominican they still liked him. Not only did Jose A. share the same name as Jose B., but he also plays with Brooklyn lifer/legends Wild Yaks and does an amazing Denzel Washington impression. This seemed cool to Jose B. and Christopher. So they asked him out and it got serious. They released a self-titled EP, and followed it up with a cassette tape called "Flowers In The Sun" on Burger Records. Pretty cool.
