los lonely boys

Los Lonely Boys come to the Luckman with their signature mix of high-octane, high-quality rock and blues combined with conjunto tejano sounds that span the band’s career. In addition to their instrumental talents, they all provide vocals with engaging hooks, expressive lyrics, and melodic sumptuousness. 

Their music is drawn from diverse sources, blending their influences into a seamless style. Weaned on Tex-Mex, country, blues, and rock pioneers like Ritchie Valens, Chuck Berry, and Fats Domino, and such pop music giants as The Beatles, Los Lonely Boys augment those solid basics with red-hot guitar playing, percolating rock and Latin rhythms, dynamic interplay, and luscious vocal harmonies. 

Los Lonely Boys is comprised of the three Garza brothers: Henry on guitar, Jojo on bass, and Ringo on drums. This remarkable trio has been making music together since they were small children. The group has garnered five Grammy nominations, and won one for Best Performance by a Duo or Band. They have also had multiple Billboard charting songs, and multiple albums that have gone platinum or gold. 

-Special Guest-

Like many singer-songwriters, Lisa Morales started penning tunes as a way to express her emotions addressing the complex landscape of relationships through music and verse. Her perspective now is that of a woman who’s gone through many storms and witnessed their sometimes-beautiful aftermaths as well.
