PALA – Pala Casino Spa Resort will present Texan rock band, Los Lonely Boys, Saturday, Aug. 12, performing live outdoors at the Starlight Theater. The show will start at 7 p.m.
Family has always been at the center of things for Los Lonely Boys. Henry, Jojo and Ringo Garza have been playing and touring together since they were teenagers. Three years ago, they decided to take a break to focus on their own growing families. But summer 2022 saw them back at it again, returning to life on the road alongside The Who. The Boys have been making music together for 17 years now, and they show no signs of slowing down or losing inspiration. Today, they can be found in the studio, working on their newest album.
The three young brothers formed a band, got signed to a major label and had a hit single that propelled them to stardom. They sold 2.5 million records, won a Grammy and received five more Grammy nominations in the span of their career. The story of how the Garza brothers rode their bluesy “Texican rock ‘n’ roll” sound from San Angelo, Texas, to worldwide fame is one of rock’s great Cinderella tales. The sons of Enrique “Ringo” Garza Sr. are a second-generation sibling band; their father and his brothers played conjunto as the Falcones before the elder Garza formed a band with his sons.
They were still teens when he moved them to Nashville, hoping to hit career paydirt. But their big break came after they returned to Texas and began playing Austin clubs in the early 2000s. One day, Willie Nelson’s nephew heard some demos. Next thing they knew, Nelson showed up at a gig. Then he showcased them at Farm Aid, fronted recording time at his famed Pedernales Studio and guested on their album. Released in 2003 on startup label Or Records, Los Lonely Boys got picked up by Epic and re-released. Propelled by the No. 1 single, “Heaven,” it wound up selling over 2 million copies, spending 76 weeks on the Billboard Top 200 album chart and earning them a Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group.
