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..."

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...."

Music Story  February 28, 2003, by Belinda Acosta
"...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...."

Los Lonely Boys on the Tonight Show, Hayes Carll at Rolling Stone
DAILY Music  March 30, 2011, by Austin Powell
"...Mere hours after an in-store appearance at Waterloo Records, Los Lonely Boys visited Jay Leno on the Tonight Show. San Angelo's Garza brothers ripped through the title track of their fourth studio LP, Rockpango, a classic scorcher that channels the Jimi Hendrix Experience by way of Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble...."

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
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™..."

ACL Music Fest Preview
Music Story  September 15, 2006
"...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..."

Amplified Heat
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..."

"...Los Lonely Boys' Ringo Garza and 13th Floor Elevators' immortal Roky Erickson both received standing ovations, the most deserving of the night, and Texas' heart beat even harder as Sonny Curtis and Nanci Griffith along with the remaining Crickets strolled on...."

"...8pm, Town Lake Stage @ Auditorium Shores LLB owned 2003 like the Oklahoma Sooners own UT's Longhorns. Hermanos Henry, Jojo, and Ringo Garza, born, raised, and still living in San Angelo, became Austin's favorite band with a self-titled CD that sprinkles Latin sabor over meat-and-potatoes Texas blues and rhapsodic live shows..."

Super Bowl weekend? Try Snooper Bowl weekend, Austin style.
Music Column  February 6, 2004, by Christopher Gray
"...At least adopted Austinites Los Lonely Boys imported some West Texas sunshine with a dynamic set of impeccable harmonies, behind-the-back fretwork, and drummer Ringo Garza channeling "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. The crowd dispersed before Dale Watson's steel-plated honky-tonk, but then it's a little difficult two-stepping in a lake...."

If John Lennon had attended this weekend's ACL Fest blowout he might have screamed, "I've got blisters on my feet!"
Music Column  September 26, 2003, by Christopher Gray
"...And that was it: The second annual Austin City Limits Music Festival was off and running and wouldn't stop until the soccer fields were denuded and all that was left were the blisters on one writer's aching feet. Home base for the next three days would be the artist/media complex erected in the Cedar Grove picnic area, a compound of tents and tables where early Friday Cody Chesnutt chowed down on Rice Krispies Treats and Los Lonely Boys drummer Ringo Garza caught a few quick winks before the local trio was due in the gospel/blues tent..."

Music Story  August 1, 2003, by Margaret Moser
"...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..."

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..."

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..."

SXSW begins giving up her secrets.
Music Column  February 21, 2014, by Kevin Curtin
"..."I wanted to focus on the younger generation," revealed organizer Rich Garza, whose 2014 bookings lack veteran acts like Flaco Jiménez, Celso Piña, and Los Lobos, all of whom played last year. "There's always room for legends, but I've been thinking long and hard about who Pachanga's audience is and, demographically, it's a youthful group."..."

Seaholm Power Plant reboots, reuses, recycles
Music Column  May 13, 2011, by Austin Powell
"...It proved an only-in-Austin moment in which local musicians rallied on short notice for a deserving cause with memorable results, in this case raising $35,000 for wildfire relief. "I've spent quite a lot of time in West Texas over the last years," noted Wennerstrom early, a sentiment mirrored in the wide-open contemplation and rapture of "The Arrow Killed the Beast." David Garza and Cook swapped themed songs in a manner that beckoned for a collaborative EP, while Griffin, on a break from Robert Plant's Band of Joy, went solo and acoustic on Western swing standard "Right or Wrong." Colvin ultimately took the cake, transitioning from Crowded House to an acoustic rendition of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy," by request, that would've turned Cee Lo Green's head on The Voice. Up All Night..."

South by Southwest turns 25, the Austin Music Awards score a Bubble Puppy coup, and Ted Nugent leaves his hat on
Music Column  March 18, 2011, by Austin Powell
"...Beginning with Standing Waves' opening invocation of Television's "See No Evil," the release party for The Austin Chronicle Music Anthology at Antone's last Wednesday carved its own piece of local history, led by the visceral guitar tandem of Larry Seaman and Randy Franklin, currently featured in the SXSW showcasing act Why Not Satellite. From Kathy McCarty's poignant, bittersweet duet with Daniel Johnston on "Hey Joe" and the Skunks' colossal "Earthquake Shake" to the Gourds' righteous hootenanny and the romantic waltz of Poi Twang (a special collaboration between Poi Dog Pondering, Abra Moore, and David Garza), the evening felt like an intimate secret shared among friends, one that OTR is deeply thankful for..."
