Tasty Tex-Mex 

Los Lonely Boys at Wente Vineyards.

Rock en español's future was never brighter thanks to Willie Nelson's discovery of Los Lonely Boys. If you look past the tattooed biker image this sibling threesome sports, what most stands out is guitarist Henry Garza's Stevie Ray Vaughan/Jimi Hendrix-influenced rhythmic style that defined the group's breakthrough single, "Heaven." Even Carlos Santana was impressed enough to take them on tour as a support act, as he's done with so many other young bands. Meanwhile, the accolades kept coming for Los Lonely Boys, culminating with their Grammy for 2005 Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for "Heaven." The brothers Garza have continued their road-dog ways, stopping long enough to lay down some more of that good-time, head-bobbing Tex-Mex for their 2006 sophomore follow-up, Sacred. Thursday, August 16 at Wente Vineyards, Livermore. 8:15 p.m., $119, $69. WenteVineyards.com
