Dance Party with Lookie Lookie
Lookie Lookie is the brainchild of bassist Chris Maclachlan, best known for his work in the seminal Boston punk band Human Sexual Response.

Maclachlan has an abiding love for Latin Bugalu, a crossover genre invented by Newyorican musicians in the 1960s. Incredibly fun and catchy, Bugalu lies somewhere between the stately Cuban sounds of the 50s and the manic high salsa of the 70s. Top artists included Joe Cuba and Ricardo Ray, whose tunes form the backbone of the new band's repertoire.

The band is indeed named for an early Ricardo Ray hit, "Lookie Lookie," which encapsulates some of the pan-American fusion that went into Bugalu.

Lookie Lookie is an all-star lineup of Boston scene veterans:

Chris Maclachlan (Human Sexual Response, Zulus, Concussion Ensemble) acoustic bass, vocals
Ken Winokur (Alloy Orchestra)) percussion
Rick Barry (Bim Skala Bim) percussion
Vicente Lebron (Either/Orchestra, Club D'Elf) percussion, vocals
Jorge Arce (Raiz de Plena, Humano), percussion, vocals
Scott Getchell (Bad Art Ensemble, Lars Vegas, Agachiko) trumpet, vocals;
Russ Gershon (Either/Orchestra, Agachiko) tenor sax, flute, vocals;
Ted DeColo (Funky White Honkies) alto sax, flute, vocals

Along with playing, just about everybody in the band sings, in Spanish and English.

Here's the song the band is named for:

And here's Joe Cuba and band doing the essential bugalu nonsense tune, "Bang Bang":
