Oye Como Va
This trio of brothers from San Angelo aren't gonna be lonely for long.
Music Story  August 1, 2003, by Melanie Haupt
"...It's particularly amusing to watch Ringo Garza, youngest of the Los Lonely Boys siblings, work the Antone's anniversary crowd as though he were prom king -- laughing, smiling, glad-handing friends and family...."

Los Lonely Boys
Live shot
Music Review  May 14, 2004, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Los Lonely BoysThe Fillmore, San Francisco, May 6 The Shaman materialized exactly 15 minutes into the San Angelo Three's siege. In one of the universe's most hallowed rock & roll shrines, surrounded by red velvet and balconies, under eight crystal chandeliers, and in front of a sold-out house (1,100), Los Lonely Boys lived the title to one of their songs, "Crazy Dream." Guitarist Henry Garza said as much..."

Los Lonely Boys: Cottonfields and Crossroads
Austinite Hector Galán’s reverential look at Grammy-winning "Texican" rockers Los Lonely Boys is a document of persistence, passion, and some of the finest rock & roll since Stevie Ray Vaughan’s untimely exit.
Film Review  August 11, 2006, by Marc Savlov
"...Not unexpectedly, it was a long, circuitous path, but Galán, who’s covered Tejano music before (2001’s Accordion Dreams, 1995’s Songs of the Homeland), is more than up to the task. It’s well-nigh unthinkable that there are still Texans out there who haven’t heard of, if not swooned over, the Garza brothers’ exquisitely soulful blend of SRV-style, guitar-driven, conjunto rock & roll, so Cornfields and Crossroads wisely offers up much more than the standard tour-film fare..."

What the Back Room leaves behind, what's ahead in the Sound Team-Pitchfork feud, and which rock superstars come calling in October
Music Column  July 28, 2006, by Christopher Gray
"...Ticket information and support acts are TBA, but since the promoter is none other than Austin City Limits Music Festival producers Capital Sports & Entertainment, even money says Lance Armstrong introduces the band. Equally likely is that CSE asks former Stones opener Los Lonely Boys to repeat, but the San Angelo trio made headlines of their own when bassist JoJo Garza was arrested on misdemeanor charges of family disturbance and possession of marijuana before the Boys' Stubb's show last Saturday..."

Off the Record
Putting a price tag on the new exclusivity of rock & roll records
Music Column  July 18, 2008, by Austin Powell
"..."We really try to get out there as many ways as possible," confides Los Lonely Boys' bassist Jojo Garza. "We're down to play anywhere we can at any time if it's going to help our career and help us reach more people." For the release of the San Angelo-based trio's third studio album, Forgiven, earlier this month (see "Band of Brothers," July 4), that translated into appearances not only on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and in Zilker Park for KGSR's ongoing Blues on the Green series but also at four Wal-Mart stores across Texas..."

Austin Music Hall, Wednesday, March 17
Music Story  March 19, 2004, by Christopher Gray
"...Or damn close. Time constraints kept the Chronicle from staying through AMA runaways Los Lonely Boys, but the fact that the brothers Garza took home Band of the Year, Album of the Year, Song of the Year for "Heaven," Rock Band, and Bassist for Jojo Garza – and that said best album just passed 200,000 in sales the previous day – made whatever bluesy baptism they had in store mere icing on a very scrumptious cake..."

Music Review  November 27, 2009, by Raoul Hernandez
"..."Silver and Gold" plates the starter pistol's dual guitar/bass jungle strut, "Cumbia Cubana Electrica" measures out gleaming brass conductivity, and "Mi Niño" booms Miami as "La Botana" stuffs itself on Caribbean surf, turf, and tequila. Que rico! Hector Ward & the Big Time sounds like LLB singer/bassist JoJo Garza fronting Tule or Grupo on Freightline Funk, nine pieces busting out raunchy horn-rimmed roots 'n' ska as in the hopped-up "Azucar." Does Willie Nelson know his single malt whiskey flows south of the border on Ward's "Gypsy River"? Another San Angeloan, Willie Alvarado debuts on Vallejo's imprint VMG..."

Band of Brothers
In a brotherhood like Los Lonely Boys, all is 'Forgiven'
Music Story  July 4, 2008, by Margaret Moser
"...Growing up in San Angelo, playing as children in the family-band tradition, the three brothers Garza have since grabbed music's proverbial platinum ring on a breakneck carousel ride that began only four years ago. They styled their visceral fusion of blues rock into "Texican rock & roll," cashing it in for a monster hit ("Heaven") and Grammy for their eponymous 2004 debut album..."

Los Lonely Boys
Music Review  January 31, 2014, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Revelation, the band's most naturalistic disc since then, prompts just such recollections. A pair of follow-ups for the Japanese conglomerate struck the charts without the staying power of "Heaven," and by 2011 indie full-length Rockpango, the hermanos Garza had trademarked a Lone Star template: Texican™..."

"...Los Lonely Boys Los Lonely Boys are the kind of guys that make Mexican mothers coo, "Ay, mi'jito -- I want you to meet my sister's daughter's cousin!" In gringo-speak, that means the brothers -- Henry, Joey (Jojo), and Ringo Garza -- are good boys with jobs, rooted in family...."

Music Review  March 18, 2011, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Blood sport. In San Angelo, my three sons of a career musico – Henry (Strat), Jojo (bass), and Ringo Garza (red bandana) – triangulate a familiar vocal that went platinum on Sony in 2003, and on fourth studio platter Rockpango, lock down their most honest disc since..."

Music Review  April 22, 2005, by Raoul Hernandez
"...Pulling a Santana – taking their Fillmore gig poster and adapting it to album art – San Angelo superheroes Los Lonely Boys bottle the lightning. Opener "Crazy Dream" wastes no time settling into LLB's comfort groove, Ringo thumping forward the harmonies of he and brothers Jojo and Henry Garza..."

"...Not since ZZ Top challenged rock's status quo has a trio from Texas cut such a swathe through modern music. San Angelo's Henry, Jojo, and Ringo Garza honed the crafty, cross-cultural meld they call Texican into chart-topping, Grammy-winning hits..."

Los Lonely Boys
Latin Beat
Music Review  November 19, 2010, by Raoul Hernandez
"...To keep pace with three studio discs beginning with LLB's self-titled 2003 smash, this third live offering strains the San Angelo familial trio's credibility from its opening "¿Que pasa, Colorado Springs?" Despite exquisite acoustic work from Henry Garza ("Oye Mamacita") and his call-and-response with bassist JoJo on nine-minute instro-jam "Man To Beat," the material's rote from overperformance ("Hollywood") and unimaginative covers ("Evil Ways"). Alejandro Escovedo and Carrie Rodriguez give their all on the Stones' "Beast of Burden."..."

"...Guadalupe Plata of Spain makes a pass at bayou blues, effortlessly combining hypnotic percussion, possessed guitars, and devilish bass for a fine tribute to old-school bluesmen, conjured with deep and abiding respect. Texican blues rockers Los Lonely Boys also pay tribute to the past on their new EP, 1969, which finds the Garza brothers – guitarist Henry, bassist JoJo, and drummer Ringo – climbing closer to classic rock heaven with covers of Santana, the Doors, and Tony Joe White..."

Gimme whatcha got for a poke chop…
Music Column  January 9, 2004, by Christopher Gray
"...After moving 60,000 units of last year's self-titled disc, the trio's label Or Music, which is owned by Sony, has struck a deal with sister label Epic that has the big dog handling all promotion and distribution while the product itself continues bearing the smaller label's stamp. This means an even bigger national profile for the brothers Garza, who had Sony brass eating out of their hands during a November showcase at NYC's Roseland Ballroom and were featured on the Dec..."

"...Yet if the real gamble is whether their classic grooves will sell, bet heavily in favor of Los Lonely Boys. Brothers Henry, Jojo, and Ringo Garza have their collective finger on the pulse of a throbbing, Texas undersound that's so vibrant, so immediate and accessible, it recalls Doug Sahm's assimilation of all things Lone Star..."

"...LOS LONELY BOYS: San Angelo's Garza brothers, Henry, Jojo, and Ringo, are riding Austin's cresting wave of Latino love, the three sons of a conjunto veteran mixing blues, classic rock, and traditionalism into their high-octane live blowouts. That Willie Nelson befriended the young trio just adds fuel to the fuego..."
