Henry, Jojo and Ringo Garza created their musical mold in the image of their father, Ringo Garza Sr., who also formed a band with his brothers. These Texas born rockers mix rock and roll with Texas blues, brown eyed soul, country and Tejano musical styles. They create a blend of smooth and spicy tones and melodies. The group first found success with their single “Heaven,” which climbed to number one on the Adult Contemporary Chart and number 16 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Soon after the success of their first single, Los Lonely Boys found themselves on the red carpet of the Grammy’s, eagerly awaiting the announcement of the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. The boys took home the golden grammaphone for “Heaven.” The next year, two more of their songs were nominated for Grammy’s including “More Than Love” and “Onda.”
In 2005, the group fulfilled a life long dream of playing with Carlos Santana. Not only did they get to jam with the master of guitar, but they recorded a song with him for his album: “All That I Am.” A few more of the boys’ dreams came true when they got to play with Willie Nelson and open for The Rolling Stones. In 2007, they were invited to participate in Amnesty International’s “Make Some Noise Project,” where various artists recorded John Lennon hits to raise money and awareness for the Campaign to Save Darfur. Los Lonely Boys contributed with their own version of “Whatever Gets You Thru the Night.”
Their latest album is their first self produced “long player” on Lonely Tone/ Playing in Traffic Records. “Rockpango” combines a feast of musical elements that fans have grown accustom to from the boys. They take the spirit and sound they have created to the next step. From fandango (a beat of loving celebration) to huapang (another infectious Latin rhythm that gets the fiesta cooking) all the way to a full-scale Tex-Mex American roots rock party, this album rocks. In eleven tracks, the Los Lonely Boys manage to hit on a variety of musical emotions from simmering and slinky in “American Idle” to fierce and fiery in “Believe.”
Each song brings Los Lonely Boys to a new level in their musical vision. With a relaxed country feel and a spicy Laten rhythm, “Rockpango” allows the band members to exists peacefully in the middle of an oxymoron. “I’m super proud of it,” says Jojo Garza the middle brother and bassists for the band. “It’s just progress, maturation and growth. Growing up, being older, seeing the world we’re living in. It’s also touching base with home. I think its one of our best if not our best. We took the ball and I think we scored a touchdown.”
