A family that plays together will play at the MSU Riley Center in downtown Meridian when Los Lonely Boys bring their â€śTexican rock â€™nâ€™ rollâ€ť to the stage on Sept. 18 at 7:30 p.m.
Los Lonely Boys burst into stardom in 2004 with the catchy single â€śHeaven,â€ť which hit number one on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart and won them a Grammy Award. Their seamless vocal harmonies and energetic onstage chemistry reflect the closeness of the Garza brothers: Henry, Jojo and Ringo Jr., who play guitar, bass and drums, respectively.
The Garzas have roots in Texas and also spent time in Nashville, so they have absorbed a wide variety of musical influences. Bluesy rock and Latin-flavored soul form the bedrock of their sound. Many songs also betray a fondness for melodic pop music.
â€śWeâ€™re all about having a good time, but we also make an effort to write about things that really matter,â€ť Jojo Garza said. â€śWe want to create music thatâ€™s about the love and the energy and the spirit that we all carry as people.â€ť
