Los Lonely Boys to make good on postponed Modesto show

July 24, 2013 

Los Lonely Boys


Los Lonely Boys will ride into the Gallo Center for the Arts a little later than the trio's originally scheduled date in March, but ready to honor that commitment on Aug. 7.

An injury suffered by band member Henry Garza forced the band to postpone its planned show five months ago. A new date was scheduled and ticketholders from the March show were able to hold on to those tickets for this coming concert.

The group will show off its blend of blues, rock, Latin, hip-hop and more as members play their hits as well as music off their most recent CD, "Rockpango."

The 2011 album's name is a take-off on the Mexican traditional folk dance, the huapango. "We went ahead and used 'rock' in it — it's a rock party," band member Jojo Garza told The Bee in March.

"The reason we felt that way is (the album) doesn't feel like it's from one band or one style of music. It's something you could definitely party to for a few hours," said Garza, who plays bass in Los Lonely Boys with brothers Henry (guitar) and Ringo (drums).

The Garza brothers are the sons of Ringo Garza Sr., a member of another sibling band — the Falcones, who played conjunto music around Texas in 1970 and 1980s. After the senior Garza split from the band, his sons backed him up as a solo act before they reached their teens.

The children went on to form Los Lonely Boys in the 1990s. The band had its break-out hit in 2004 with the ballad "Heaven," which was a major radio hit and eventually reached No. 1 on the adult contemporary chart. The song won a Grammy Award for best pop performance by a duo or group with vocal.
