The Last Bandoleros are a four-piece outfit that blends together Tex-Mex, country, and rock n’ roll. Their story begins in San Antonio, Texas, with guitarist/producer Jerry Fuentes who, during a musical pilgrimage to Manhattan, happened to meet singer-songwriter/producer and New York native Derek James. Fuentes and James soon began collaborating in Brooklyn. However, Fuentes kept being drawn back to his native Texas to record in the same San Antonio studio where a couple of talented brothers were also emerging. Diego and Emilio Navaira, sons of Tejano music legend Emilio Navaira Sr., had been making a name for themselves around town with their energetic live performances and sterling vocal chops. Fuentes decided to combine both of his universes by introducing James to the Navaria brothers and inviting them to joint sessions in Brooklyn and San Antonio. Riffs and lyrics began flying fast; the Last Bandoleros were born.
