Tex-Mex rockers heading to The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa
TULSA, Okla. – Grammy Award-winning bands Los Lobos and Los Lonely Boys are bringing a night of collaboration to The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa on March 9.
Tickets start at $39 and go on sale Jan. 4.
After humble beginnings in 1973, Mexican-American band Los Lobos first gained notoriety with its 1984 breakthrough album, “How Will The Wolf Survive?” before recording its iconic version of Mexican folk song “La Bamba” for the film of the same title. The song skyrocketed to No. 1 on the Billboard charts in 1987, making it the first Spanish song ever to do so.
Los Lobos followed up their massive success with three decades of albums, including “By The Light of the Moon,” “The Neighborhood,” “Kiko,” “Papa’s Dream,” “Colossal Head,” “The Ride” and “Tin Can Trust.” The band most recently released “Gates of Gold” in 2015, a mix of the band’s raw intensity of rock, Tex-Mex, country, folk, R&B and blues.
The Los Lonely Boys’ journey to worldwide fame is one of rock’s great Cinderella tales. After a failed move to Nashville, their big break came after being heard by Willie Nelson’s nephew in the early 2000s. They later established their “Texican Rock” sound in 2003 with their self-titled first album that featured the No. 1 smash hit “Heaven.” The album sold more than 2 million copies, spending 76 weeks on the Billboard Top 200 album chart and landing the band a Grammy for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group.
The band released a holiday album, “Christmas Spirit,” in 2008 and have stayed busy embarking on numerous tours, including a trip to Iraq to entertain American troops and an acoustic tour that’s documented with the 2010 album, “Keep on Giving: Acoustic Live.” They’re currently working on a follow-up to the 2014 album, “Revelation,” that includes songs like “Blame It on Love,” “Give A Little More,” “It’s Just My Heart Talkin’” and “There’s Always Tomorrow.”
