The Last Bandoleros
The Last Bandoleros
The Last Bandoleros are a four-piece outfit blending Tex-Mex, country and rock n' roll. Their story begins in San Antonio, Texas with guitarist/producer Jerry Fuentes who, during a musical pilgrimage to Manhattan, chanced to meet New York native, singer-songwriter/producer Derek James. Fuentes and James began collaborating in Brooklyn. But, Fuentes kept being drawn back to his native Texas to record in the same San Antonio studio where a couple of talented brothers were also emerging. Diego and Emilio Navaira, sons of Tejano music legend, Emilio Navaira, Sr., had been making a name for themselves around town for their energetic live performances and sterling vocal chops. Fuentes decided to combine both of his universes by introducing Derek to Diego and Emilio and inviting them to joint-sessions in Brooklyn and San Antonio where riffs and lyrics began flying fast. Newly christened The Last Bandoleros, the quartet began playing live, opening for The Mavericks, Jon Pardi, Josh Abbott Band, Los Lonely Boys and Marc Broussard. Recognizing their high level of musicianship, Sting called upon them to sing backing vocals on his "I Can't Stop Thinking About You" single which soared the heights of radio charts around the world. Praise also began pouring in from the music press. Rolling Stone wrote: "[The Last Bandoleros'] music caroms wildly from rock and country to conjunto and pop, adding up to a sound that's hard to get out of your head." People Magazine dubbed the band "ones to watch" and Entertainment Weekly included them in their "Breaking Big" list. HITS Magazine described The Last Bandoleros as "Tex-Mex meets harmony- rich Beatlesque pop, with a healthy dollop of boy-pop charisma." The Last Bandoleros combine their unique cultural experiences with rare musical camaraderie and, as audiences will continue to discover, their exuberance and joy are contagious.

The Easy Leaves – California Country is Back!

The Easy Leaves run at the front of the Country music herd in their beloved California, headlining and filling big rooms (Great American Music Hall, The Independent, Mystic Theatre), main stage set at Outside Lands Festival (where Willie Nelson told them 'We should play together again'!), and other venerable festivals throughout the land such as Pickathon, Strawberry Music Festival, Nelsonville, Red Ants Pants, Alaska Folk Festival, Hipnic, Treefort, and more. CMT premieres their videos, has them for in-studios ...

But more to the point, they write, record, and perform incredible songs; songs that are meticulously crafted, and have great capabilities of (just plain) moving people.  Under the guidance of Merle Haggard's music, and countless other important poets, The Easy Leaves have written their own collection of poetry for the common man.    

The 78 Project, a documentary by Spike Lee's music supervisor currently on the festival circuit, recreating Alan Lomax's historic journey to capture important American Folk music on its home porches found, recorded, The Easy Leaves for their film (alongside Rosanne Cash,  Loudon Wainwright III, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Justin Townes Earl, Richard Thompson and other great talents). NPR, Wall Street Journal, and The New York Times have featured it, and The Smithsonian, Library of Congress, and the Alan Lomax estate are active advisors.
iTunes, found the boys truly bringing the honky tonk into the studio. 2018 sees the release of The Wheels (available now as a tour only EP at their shows!), in the same timeless vein, as they continue their pilgrimage as proud ambassadors for California Country music.
