Los Lonely Boys Crop #2

Once again I am going to change the concept of this blog as it evolves just like my life did. Everything takes on a life of its own if you let it, or should I say, if you choose to walk down all the paths that open up to you after you knock on their portals for entry. My path took me from rock & roll to only Christian music and then as the heathen rock & rollers became born again back to rock & roll again. So why not present reports of secular concerts and events on this blog as well as Christian ones.

This past weekend I have been covering the Waterfront Blues Festival in Portland, Oregon and as we all know, the blues has its roots in gospel. In the early days of the 20th century many blues artists were ministers and sang gospel for the Lord on Sunday after singing blues for the devil on Saturday night. One of the first groups that I saw perform at the festival were one of the headliners, Los Lonely Boys. The band is made up of Henry Garza lead guitar, Jojo Garza bass and Ringo Garza drums. They rocked the house down with their powerful set and later performed with Los Lobos during the latter’s set.

The band is from Texas and was their fathers backup band from childhood into their teens. They’ve won a Grammy and had a hit record on the charts called β€œHeaven,” off their first album. To find out more about them, check out their website at: http://loslonelyboys.com/ For information about the Waterfront Blues Festival, go to: http://www.waterfrontbluesfest.com/ .
