MAYETTA: The Los Lonely Boys, a Grammy-award-winning three-piece rock band from San Angelo, Texas, performed last night to a lively crowd at the Prairie Band Casino & Resort.
The band is most well known for their number one hit “Heaven” that they played as the encore song to close out the show. The group also sang a number of original popular songs and got the crowd to their feet during a rendition of “I’m a Man” made famous by Stevie Winwood.
The group, who consists of two guitarists and a drummer, are brothers and their music is a blend of rock, soul, blues, country and Tejano. Influenced by other greats besides Winwood, like Stevie Ray Vaughan and Carlos Santana, for example, they are also following in the footsteps of their father Ringo Garza Sr. who performed with the Falcones in the 1970s and 1980s.
The Los Lonely Boys have written most of their songs and had nine CD selections for sale after the show. In 2005 they earned a Grammy for best pop performance with vocals for a duo/group and they have been periodically ranked in the top three of the Billboard charts for their songs and albums.
Last night’s show was part of the Prairie Band Casino & Resort’s concert series. Next Sunday, Sara Evans will perform and the Beach Boys will appear on August 1. On September 5 Randy Travis will be in concert and Tanya Tucker will be at the casino on October 10. Tickets are available in the Prairie Band Casino & Resort Gift Shop.
