Los Lonely Boys: The Tex Mex Rockers Return

Throughout its career, Los Lonely Boys has won over a whole community of fans and a Grammy Award in 2005 (for its single "Heaven") with its unique Tex Mex rock 'n' roll and radio-friendly pop hooks. But last year, the band's status was up in the air, after guitarist Henry Garza suffered a scary spinal injury when he fell off-stage during a concert, and the power trio -- brothers Henry Jojo, and Ringo Garza -- spent a good chunk of 2013 on hiatus. 

Luckily, Henry Garza has recovered, the band has regrouped, and sounds revitalized on its latest album, Revelation, released back in January. While the hard-touring band has always played in a variety of genres and styles (often in the same song), this new collection finds Los Lonely Boys playing with Santana-esque Latin blues jams, traditional conjunto, '70s soul and even, yes, soft 80's-styled yacht rock. Ten years after its 2004 breakout, Revelation, feels like another very fine entry in the "Texican"'s discography.


Set List:

  • "So Sensual"
  • "Give A Little More"
  • "Don't Walk Away"

Additionally, Last night's show at City Winery was outstanding.
They are back on tour and rockin' with a spirit and energy like never before.
Hearing them live in an intimate venue like this can only be a portent of bigger and better things ahead. They were supported on this stop by "Sons of Bil" [from Virginia] who gave their all and made me a new fan and will soon release a new record which got some toes tapping during their set prior to LLB during the 3 nights here in nYc.
Go hear them both and get the music for yourself.

Soundcheck - thank you so VERY much for shining the spotlight on Los Lonely Boys. A good slice of the very newest material from Revelation. And, for those of us that go way back, it's always wonderful to see (and hear) an article like this that introduces the boys to an even wider audience. Whatever led to that cute little pass at Nobody Else at 24:40, well, nobody else but LLB (thanks!). Next time you interview them, treat your listeners to the up-tempo Friday Night and bluesy I Am The Man To Beat. Incredible range of material in 10 years - although the first album was cut way back in the late 90s. (Yes, it is ALSO titled Los Lonely Boys) God bless, and viva LLB!

My favorite part of this session is the last seven minutes of the interview. The boys' philosophy on music and life really comes out. Love these guys and their music so much!

Thank you Thank you Soundcheck for having LLB as your guest. Acoustic "So Sensual" sounded so groovy. Los Lonely Boys are always spot on with harmonies and their tunes. I've heard fabulous reports on the East Coast shows and it's awesome that people are really listening to and digging Revelation. Great collaborations for sure. Henry - can't tell you enough how relieved we are that you are recovering. We appreciate every note you play. JoJo and Ringo absolutely love everything y'all have to say. Thanks for being so real (as Yvonne said).
