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.

Ethan Russell: The Best Seat in the House

Grammy-nominated photographer, author, and director Ethan Russell recounts personal experiences from the vantage point of “The Best Seat in the House.” 

Only a handful of people toured with The Rolling Stones at the peak of their career; were behind stage at Altamont to witness the tragic unfolding of events that many define as the end of the 60’s; were with The Beatles during their last days together; and were at Apple Studios during iconic moments in music history. Ethan Russell was one of them. 

Ethan Russell’s extraordinary life is experienced through an historic collection of iconoclastic photos, a soundtrack of rock classics, and the perspectives and personal anecdotes of a thoughtful, intelligent writer, storyteller, and gifted photographer.

Ethan Russell guides us on a behind-the-scenes journey through music history. You’ll leave feeling like you were there, too. In recounting the moments behind the photographs, and in showing the audience the world that extended beyond the photograph’s frame, Ethan Russell ensures that you, too, get to relive this era in the history of music from the best seat in the house.
