On July 9th, Blues On The Green featured none other than
Now before Wednesday night, the Lonely Boys had been seen around
Los Lonely Boys did play a good hour plus set with tracks from their new album Wednesday, including their new single “Staying With Me”. It is a good first single, but lacks the catchiness that “Heaven” had their first time around. Other surprises they threw the crowd’s way were a Stevie Wonder cover of “Superstition”, a guest guitarist named A.B. Hernandez and some random gringo singer nobody heard of. That was actually the funniest part of the set as the song he sang with them was called “Guero’s in the Barrio”. It is not on my copy of the new CD “Forgiven”. Apparently it is only on version you get at Wal Mart. Don’t get me started on how I feel about that. I’m not happy about it to say the least.
The brothers Garza always put on a good show, showing off their personality and musicianship. Wednesday night was no different. I know this may sound cheesy or corny, but I really dig how they smile a lot while on stage. They should smile. They have every reason in the world to be happy and optimistic about their upcoming tour to support “Forgiven”.
The material from their first album was the highlight for me because it was a blend of Mexcian, blues, and rock. There is less bilingualism in “Forgiven” than their self titled album I have. None the less, they are totally worth seeing live. Check out this video I took from my digital camera during “Heaven”.
