The Last Bandoleros are a new breed of Tex Mex, blending sounds of hyper train beats, distorted guitars, Beatlesque harmonies, and blazing accordian solos. The band is comprised of bassist Diego Navaira and his older brother, drummer Emilio Navaira , along with guitarists Jerry Fuentes and Derek James. They opened the North American leg of Sting’s 57th & 9th tour dates and have an extensive number of tour dates coming up , including the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival .
