Yay, you’re back! Welcome to BTRtoday’s Discovery Corner podcast brought to you by Levi’s.
Meet Las Rosas, the Brooklyn-based band that will rock your summer. Their music is perfect for any beach goer who wants a catchy tune to soak up some rays and chill with a beer in hand to.
It originally consisted of Jose Boyer on guitar and lead vocals, Jose Aybar on bass, and Christopher Lauderdale on drums. Just recently the band has gained Glenn Van Dyke, from the band BOYTOY, adding more guitar and hitting the tambourine.

If you’re looking for an aesthetically cool looking group, you’ve found them—they totally break the barriers of hip. They’ve got the hair, shades, shoes, and tunes to prove it.
They were impressed by BTRtoday’s obscure collection of CDs that are covering the walls of the studio. During the interview we spoke about several bands we had CDs to that blew their mind–not because it was hip of us, but because they have personal connections to these other musicians and wild stories.
In fact, Boyer and Lauderdale recount a tour they shared with one of these obscure bands they found lining the BTR studio walls, where the lead singer punched Lauderdale square in the face.
