Los Lonely Boys Fight Cancer on Summer Tour

May 23, 2011
Los Lonely Boys Partner with Children's Charity Group Padres Contra El Cancer on Spring/Summer Tour

rockpangoOn the eve of releasing their acclaimed new album Rockpango, Los Lonely Boys performed a surprise benefit show in Los Angeles for Padres Contra El Cancer, a Latino non-profit dedicated to battling childhood cancer. The show was a huge success raising funds and awareness for the charity, but the partnership didn't end there. The band is encouraging fans to donate to the cause at each stop on their current tour by texting "IAMHOPE" to 85944 to make a $5 donation, and they recently launched their own signature line of Stacy Adams shoes, with a portion of each sale going to support Padres.

Check out the band's PSA here.

Rockpango has been earning glowing reviews from press with American Songwriter calling it "superb" and All Music Guide proclaiming it "inviting, infectious, and inventive....the most satisfying recording that Los Lonely Boys have come up with yet." See below for upcoming tour dates.
