Los Lonely Boys. (2009, January 20). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 23:28, January 21, 2009, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Los_Lonely_Boys&oldid=265357855

Los Lonely Boys is an American Grammy Award-winning musical rock band from San Angelo, Texas. They play a style of music which they dub as Texican Rock n' Roll, combining elements of rock and roll, blues, soul, country, and Tejano.

The band consists of three brothers, Henry (guitar, vocals), Jojo (bass guitar, vocals), and Ringo (drums, vocals).[1] They follow the tradition of their father, Ringo Garza Sr., who formed a band with his brothers called The Falcones. The Falcones played conjunto music in southern Texas during the 70s and 80s. To date, Los Lonely Boys has released three studio albums and a live album, all on the Epic Records label. Their debut single, "Heaven", was a Number One hit on the Billboard adult contemporary chart and reached the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The three brothers emerged as a group in Nashville in the 1990s. After moving back to their home state of Texas they recorded their debut album in 2003 in Austin at Willie Nelson's Pedernales recording studio.[2] The album was initially released by Or Music and later acquired by Epic Records for distribution in March 2004.

The group's single, "Heaven", reached #1 on the Adult Contemporary chart, and #16 on the Billboard Hot 100; crossing over even to the Hot Country Songs chart, where it peaked at #46. In 2005 the song won a Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal. Other songs nominated for Grammys include More Than Love and Onda, both in 2006.

In 2005, the group recorded, "I Don't Wanna Lose Your Love," with Santana for his album All That I Am. The Sacred CD features the song "Outlaws". In a very interesting "closing of the circle", Enrique Garza Sr., sings the verse about the "missing outlaws, just like me". Willie Nelson, (who is credited on the 2004 album) also provides a verse which makes reference to his hit, "On The Road Again".

In 2007, Los Lonely Boys participated in Amnesty International's "Make Some Noise" project. Their cover of John Lennon's "Whatever Gets You thru the Night" is the second single from the "Instant Karma: The Amnesty International Campaign to Save Darfur." The song released on iTunes April 17, with the entire album available on June 12 courtesy of Warner Bros. Records. "Whatever Gets You thru the Night" is noteworthy as John Lennon's only US number one solo single while he was alive.

Their third studio album, Forgiven, was released on July 1, 2008. The album was recorded at East Side Stages in Austin and was produced by Steve Jordan.

On October 23, 2008, Los Lonely Boys sang the US National Anthem to open game two of the 2008 World Series in St. Petersburg, Florida. [3]
