Los Lonely Boys: Henry Garza (vocals, guitar); JoJo Garza (vocals, bass guitar); Ringo Garza (vocals, drums).
Additional personnel: John Porter, Willie Nelson (acoustic guitar); Reese Wynans (piano, organ); Diego Simmons (percussion).
Three Chicano brothers from Texas--Henry, Jojo, and Ringo Garza--make up the roots rock trio Los Lonely Boys. Touted as "Willie Nelson's favorite local band," the Lonely Boys accordingly spend much of their first album working their own variant on American musical traditions. Their blend of rock, blues, and soul is as full of references to their influences as it is teeming with youthful energy. Henry Garza strikes up an extremely Stevie Ray Vaughan-like guitar tone on the bluesy shuffle of "Crazy Dream" (in fact, Vaughan's keyboardist Reese Wynans is a guest on the album).
The lengthy near-instrumental "Onda," with its lyrical-but-biting guitar, Ringo's Latin percussion, and Wynans's rich organ, seems to be an homage to vintage Santana, and the band shows off its vocal harmonies on the old-school soul ballad "More Than Love." If Los Lobos were a couple of decades younger and hailed from Texas instead of California, they might sound quite a bit like Los Lonely Boys.
