The Los Lonely Boys’ performance will highlight tracks from their new album “Revelation,” combining elements of the bluesy rock ‘n’ roll and soul that are so integral to the structure of the band, like their hit “Heaven,” with the conjunto feel of “Blame It On Love,” the reggae groove of “Give A Little More,” the rustic acoustic notes of “It’s Just My Heart Talkin’” and the baroque pop influences of “There’s Always Tomorrow.”
Henry, Jojo, and Ringo are brothers and have been writing and performing their own material as a trio since the 1990s. After a prominent guest appearance on Santana’s 2005 album “All That I Am,” Los Lonely Boys solidified their success with Grammy nominations and have earned a reputation as a powerful live act.
