Los Lonely Boys take MSU Riley Center stage this month

MSU News - Thu, 09/03/2015 - 15:31

Los Lonely Boys

A family that plays together will play at the MSU Riley Center in downtown Meridian when Los Lonely Boys bring their “Texican rock ’n’ roll” to the stage on Sept. 18 at 7:30 p.m.

Los Lonely Boys burst into stardom in 2004 with the catchy single “Heaven,” which hit number one on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart and won them a Grammy Award. Their seamless vocal harmonies and energetic onstage chemistry reflect the closeness of the Garza brothers: Henry, Jojo and Ringo Jr., who play guitar, bass and drums, respectively.

The Garzas have roots in Texas and also spent time in Nashville, so they have absorbed a wide variety of musical influences. Bluesy rock and Latin-flavored soul form the bedrock of their sound. Many songs also betray a fondness for melodic pop music.

“We’re all about having a good time, but we also make an effort to write about things that really matter,” Jojo Garza said. “We want to create music that’s about the love and the energy and the spirit that we all carry as people.”

Tickets are $43 and $37 at the MSU Riley Center Box Office, which is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Tickets can be purchased online at www.msurileycenter.com or by calling the box office at 601-696-2200.

STARKVILLE, Miss.--Award-winning country music singer-songwriter Lee Brice will perform in concert Nov. 6 at the Mississippi Horse Park in Starkville.

The 8 p.m. event is sponsored by Mississippi State’s Music Maker Productions.

General admission tickets are $30 each. Advance purchases may be made online at www.msuconcerts.com, by telephoning 662-325-2930 or visiting the university’s Center for Student Activities in Suite 314, Colvard Student Union.

MSU student tickets are $20 each with a valid campus identification card. Only one discounted ticket and one regular-priced ticket may be purchased per student.

A South Carolina native, Brice was honored last year with the Academy of Country Music’s Song of the Year award for “I Don’t Dance.” In 2012, he was nominated for the CMA’s New Artist of the Year award.

Brice—who wrote his first song as a child and sang in church choirs as a youth—began work as a professional songwriter in 2007. That same year, he signed with Nashville’s Curb Records and co-wrote “More Than a Memory” for Garth Brooks.

“More Than a Memory” went on to become the first single ever to debut at No. 1 on Billboard magazine’s Hot Country Songs chart.

A former Clemson University football player who turns 35 Sept. 25, Brice also has written successful songs for Jason Aldean, Keith Gattis and others.

Music Maker Productions is a student organization working to provide quality, contemporary entertainment for MSU and area communities. More information about the organization and the Brice concert can be found at the above-listed website.

MSU is Mississippi’s flagship research university, available online at www.msstate.edu.
