Los Lonely Boys Cottonfields and Crossroads (2006)
Award-winning filmmaker Hector Galan turns his camera on San Angelo-based "Texican" trio Los Lonely Boys as they hit the road to tour and bring their unique brand of music to eager audiences all across North America. As children, the three Mexican-American brothers were inspired by the unique sounds of the San Angelo, Texas music scene. Later, the trio would learn to harness that unique style while infusing their music with a decidedly personal touch. When San Angelo-based documentary filmmaker Galan learned of Los Lonely Boys, he immediately realized that their remarkable tale possessed the power to inspire musicians from all backgrounds. In addition to exploring brothers Henry, JoJo, and Ringo Garza's Mexican-American roots, the film also attempts to place their music within a cultural perspective that truly captures a magical moment in time where it all came together for the trio.
