Los Lonely Boys
(Meadowbrook, MI - August 10th, 2008)
Los Lonely Boys are a family tradition.
The family band is a great rockíníroll institution - from the Everly Brothers and the Beach Boys to the Black Crowes and Hanson. There's something about the unstudied perfection of sibling vocal harmonies that creates a distinctive, irresistible style.
Los Lonely Boys, three brothers, guitarist Henry Garza, bassist JoJo Garza, and drummer Ringo Garza, Jr., from a tiny town in West Texas, are about to write a new chapter in this compelling saga of America's musical families.
Beginning as their fatherís backing band, the boys have come a long way since their debut self-titled album in 2003, and tonight played in from of a packed house; having been opened up for by the mighty Los Lobos.
Culling extensively from 'Forgiven,' the third album from the Grammy Award winning multi-platinum band, Los Lonely Boys didn't have a set list and just (basically) jammed the night away.
Kicking off with 'Hollywood' from their debut album, the evenings tone was immediately set. Henry and Ringo had previously joined Los Lobos in a two song set and so it was only right that later in their own set that they brought out the lead guitarist, accordian player and sax to do a three song set. A set that included such hits as 'Suzie Q,' 'Born On A Bayou,' and 'I'm A Man.'
Los Lonley Boys ended their set with a full ten minute long version of their big hit 'Heaven' which had the entire crowd dancing and singing. Called The Brotherhood Tour, Los Lonely Boys even had time to introduce a buddy named Russ Steel (nicknamed 'Guerro') to the fray before finally leaving the stage for the last time to rapturous applause.
