CATOOSA, 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 gained fame 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 its 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.
