A group from New York, USA they were originally known as The Latin Blues Band. For their third album they were re-christened as Los Astronautas or for English speakers The Moon People.

Their most popular track was originally called "(I'll Be A) Happy Man" featuring Luis Aviles and was released on their LP "Take A Trip Pussycat" (Speed 101) 1968. It was later released on their third LP "Land Of Love" (Speed 103) 1968 as "The Happy Soul". However, "The Happy Soul" was then edited and overdubbed with organ solos by Dave "Baby" Cortez and released as "Happy Soul (With A Hook)" by Dave Cortez With The Moon People. A few months later, in 1969, yet another re-edit of this track, this time titled "Hippy, Skippy, Moon Strut (Opus #1)" and credited simply to The Moon People, was released on Roulette.
