San Antonio’s native sons, The Last Bandoleros, have been turning heads with their accomplished musicianship and impressive harmonies opening for Sting, The Mavericks, Los Lobos, and Dwight Yoakum. Their alluring sound – a mix of Texas roots and modern Latin flavor – which the band call “Tex-Flex” – has built them a fervent following.
The Last Bandoleros’ album, Live from Texas, shot to #6 on the iTunes album chart after their kinetic performance on ABC’s Good Morning America. Their song “Maldita” also receive a prestigious Premio Tejano Mundial award for “Crossover Song of the Year.”
The Last Bandoleros’ new song, “California Moon,” is a duet with singer/songwriter Hannah Brier whose own song “Violet” was recently featured on Spotify’s “Fresh Finds” playlist.
Hannah’s voice can also be heard on Sting’s new “Por Su Amor” as well as Samantha Fish’s “Faster” album which spent three weeks at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart and reached #2 on the Folk/Americana chart. In addition, the song has been featured on Tejano and radio stations across the Southwest and has started to climb those charts as well.
Propelled by an inviting acoustic guitar rhythm, the romantic “California Moon” captures a wistful, nostalgic feeling while vividly evoking the magical sights of an unforgettable Los Angeles skyline and indelible drive down Sunset Boulevard. The song and accompanying video have been released in both English and Spanish versions.
The Last Bandoleros (Diego Navaira on vocals/bass, Emilio Navaira on vocals/drums, and Jerry Fuentes on vocals/guitar) are currently performing live opening for Sting, The BossHoss, and the Gin Blossoms.
