Message from Fantasy Springs:
Grammy Award-winning bands Los Lobos and Los Lonely Boys are joining forces and bringing their distinctive and eclectic Latin flavor to Fantasy Springs Resort Casino on Saturday, April 14, 2018.
Los Lobos’ debut album was called Just Another Band from East L.A. but in their four decade-long career, they’ve repeatedly disproven that title—Los Lobos isn’t “just another” anything. Highly recognized for their hit single “La Bamba”, Los Lobos has released 19 albums, received 3 Grammy Awards and numerous Grammy Award nominations. “We’re a Mexican American band, and no word describes America like immigrant. Most of us are children of immigrants, so it’s perhaps natural that the songs we create celebrate America in this way,” says Louie Perez, the “poet laureate” and primary wordsmith of Los Lobos, when describing the songs on the band’s latest album, Gates of Gold. Perez once called their powerhouse mix of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B, blues and traditional Spanish and Mexican music “the soundtrack of the barrio.” In October, 2015, Los Lobos was nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the first time.
Los Lonely Boys, the “Texican” rock ‘n’ roll trio of brothers Henry, JoJo and Ringo Garza, debuted in 2003 with the multi-chart gold single “Heaven.” They’ve sold millions of albums, won a Grammy, racked up stacks of critical acclaim, and even opened for The Rolling Stones. Despite the success of their 2014 album Revelation, “We’re still Lonely Boys,” JoJo insists, chuckling in agreement that they are also now Los Lonely Men who have truly come of age. “We’re still family, we’re still three brothers, we’re still doing what the good Lord has blessed us with, and that’s singing and playing for people who really want to listen.” Their latest work is a 2016 cover version of John Fogerty’s “Born On The Bayou,” which was recorded for the Quiero Creedence project, a tribute album of Creedence Clearwater Revival covers by various Latin recording artists.
