Described as “Los Lobos meet The Monkees,” this Tex-Mex/pop-rock outfit is an “Artist to Watch,” according to Rolling Stone, while Entertainment Weekly lists them as one of their “Breaking Big” artists.
Since bursting onto the Nashville scene in 2016, the San Antonio-forged group has earned widespread recognition. They released their Texas-tinged, self-titled debut EP earlier this year. They are currently wrapping up an international tour with Sting, and feature as backing vocalists on his new single “I Can’t Stop Thinking About You,” currently climbing the AAA radio and iTunes rock charts.
The group has sold out New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall as headliner and opened for Canadian chanteuse Feist at Webster Hall (NYC). Tour dates with The Mavericks, Marc Broussard and Los Lonely Boys have also kept The Last Bandoleros busy.
Comprised of Jerry Fuentes (guitar and vocals), Derek James (guitar and vocals), Diego Navaira (bass and vocals) and Emilio Navaira (drums and vocals), the band is often joined by a button accordionist on stage.
