SAN ANTONIO (Nov. 2, 2021) – San Antonio loves a party and loves to party with family. And The Last Bandoleros are San Antonio family. The band is made up of locals Jerry Fuentes, Diego and Emilio Navaira IV (sons of the late, great Tejano singer Emilio Navaira III) and Derek James, who got to Texas as soon as he could.
With a sound reminiscent of The Texas Tornadoes, this central Texas blend of country, Tex-Mex, and rock ‘n’ roll has captured the ears of music lovers around the world. Appearances on national TV shows, work with major labels, touring and recording with Sting, along with some recent releases has made this Texas band a force to be reckoned with.
