Well, I'm gonna see Los Lonely Boys in Mesquite tomorrow night as part of the Real Texas Festival. Mesquite's just outside of Dallas. I haven't seen them live yet, but I'm really looking forward to it!! I know they've played some shows with The Allmans in the past. Anyone else in here fans of Los Lonely Boys? If so, please reply. Thanks.

The Guitar player...rocks. He's a cross between Carlos Santana & SRV...They harmonize well too.

Rumors are that they're doing an acoustic performance tomorrow night, which is cool. But I'm hoping it's a full blown electric show.

Yep, i like them. A bit of a mix of Carlos Santana, SRV and Los Lobos.
"Onda" is a killer tune.

That's a great way to describe him but he definitely has his own style. Henry Garza is a hot guitar player...way under-rated.

These guy totally rock and are nothing like the pop imagine that many associate with them. You'll enjoy the show.

I saw them open for Dickie Betts here in Alabama a few years back. They put on an amazing stage show. Very talented brothers. Hmmm, that sounds familiar.

I've seen them a couple of times, including once opening for Santana at Chastain Park. I was blown away! They are awesome!

I saw them open for Santana also and was very impressed with their live performance. Going to see them again in Ridgefield May 14th. They're one of those bands that you need to see live to really appreciate.

Garza has a couple guitar styles. One is Texas SRV blues and one is distinctly influenced by Dickey, IMO. He can make the guitar sing like Mr Betts. I think of Dickey in their lighter tunes.

i've been into them since first hearing them several years ago ~ they are great & as Rhonda said, way under rated. They have a great sound & mesh together really well! I'm going to see them on May 15th, first trip to this area!
on a side note ~ Henry Garza is the ultimate in eye candy for me

I have never seen Los Lonely Boys so I cannot pass judgment. I do have their first record and I was not impressed with it. I just think it's interesting that here in the Bay area at a local Winery this summer, these guys take top billing and have the incredible Los Lobos as their opener. Like I said, I've never seen Los Lonely Boys, but as a long-time Los Lobos fan who's seen them around 10 times, it's hard for me to believe that Los Lonely Boys are not going to get blown right off of the stage that evening.

I totally dig the first Los Lonely Boys album. Played it a lot the first year came out. Hard to believe though that they are headlining with Los Lobos, particularly in California.

Los Lonely Boys didn't really take off after that first record. The music industry and radio just don't know exactly what to do with a band that plays guitar solos. I got their second record and it suffered from having "following the debut album" syndrome.

I thought...& still think...that the 1st Los Lonely Boys LP was one of the better "debut" releases that i've ever heard.

Absolutely correct. There is alot of Dickie's influence on their first album for sure. I am sure that's why they were opening for Dickie a few years back.

The Santana references are also on the mark.

And, if anyone out there has Stevie Ray's tone down without blatantly trying to "rip off" Stevie's sound, it's Henry.

I love this band and see them any time I can.

I also did not know (till recently) that they cut their teeth performing in Nashville behind their father. He was trying to make it big in country music. The name "Los Lonely Boys" even came from a song their father wrote. Didn't quite pan out and the boys split and started doing their own thing. The rest, as they say, is history.

Great, great, band!

I remember the first time I heard a promo of their first before its' release, when it got to Heaven I laughed. I was amazed that they would openly copy Blue Sky that way. Then I read an interview and Henry openly admitted to "borrowing" heavily from Blue Sky so at least he was honest.

I find them much better live than on album. High energy and kind of fun IMO.

The first time I met them, they were living in Atlanta. They were staying with their first manager, Jimmy Stratton at his photo studio. I walked in and they were messing around in the studio and I looked up at them and all I could see were instruments and a pair of sticks waving around in the air. Ringo was 8 and Henry and JoJo were, I think, 11 and 12 years old. They were smaller than the Epiphones they were holding. Jimmy and the boys woul havve a bitter parting a few years later, But, before they split, we introduced the boys to some friends of mine, namely Jack Pearson and Willian Howse. During their tenure here in Nashville, they would open several times for the Nationals. Jack then got the owner of the club to give them the late slot (closing). Jack also gave a few lessons to Henry, mostly on slide techniques, which I can hear in Henry's playing, When you meet them, tell them a guitar player from Murfreesboro says hello. Henry will smile and say "yeah man, Jackie P."

Downloaded "Heaven" yesterday from iTunes, but I chose the Spanish version.

For some reason I like it better.

Well, the show was awesome last night!! They were so good & played most of the good songs including Heaven. I agree that you have to see them live to really appreciate them. Henry Garza's an awesome guitar player & has the SRV & Santana influence, but it's defnitely there own sound though. Ringo played a couple drum solos that rocked, & Jojo is also really cool. I hope I can see them again soon.

The debut disc and the subsequent `LIVE AT THE
FILLMORE' were excellent. But the second album I
thought was very uninspired so I traded it in. I have
not heard the latest. They bailed on the ABB tour,
then did some corporate endorsements and their
career seems to have faltered.
However, they are headlining one of the nights of
our little July Bluesfest here in the wilds of Canada
this year (along with Mick Taylor, Steve Earle, Larry
McRay and Devon Allman) and I'm looking forward
to it....LLBs put on a great show.

I finally got a chance to see these guys Friday night ~ after waiting for them to come through my area for several years... they were AWESOME! we were all blown away at how great they were live & how talented & gracious they were! They are doing a free show in Buffalo in July! See them if you get a chance! I love their style...rock, the blues & a Spanish twist...a seriously great sound coming from just 3 guys! the bond between the 3 brothers is very easy to see too
