The Brotherhood Tour: Los Lobos & Los Lonely Boys Bring Tex-Mex to Wolf Trap

Last night we were fortunate enough to grab lawn seats Los Lobos and Los Lonely Boys at the Wolf Trap - Filene Center.  This was the second time I've seen the two bands paired together at Wolf Trap and in my eyes they are so close, they are listed consecutively on the site (11 & 12).  The three brothers started the night and even though their last few CDs haven't received the critical acclaim as their self titled debut CD, they are remarkable musicians. And they showed it this evening, JoJo on bass, Henry on lead, and Ringo behind the drums - these bros rock. Yes, they had to play the obligatory Heaven in their encore - but everything else was pure jamming.

Los Lobos followed and continued a twenty five year tradition of playing outstanding Latin infused rock. Most of the songs were from the 20th anniversary re-release of Kiko -  which I had to add to my collection - particularly since the band was signing anything after the show. 

The two bands continue the Brotherhood Tour all summer and into the fall, with Alejandro Escovedo joining in. That's the only way this evening could have been better. Cheers.
