James Arreola of Los Palominos updated fans on the latest from the GRAMMY-winning band in an interview with Tejano Nation donor Lily Marie at Tejano Explosion in San Antonio, Texas on April 7.

“We had to kind of regroup and figure out what we were going to do,” said James Arreola. “We took the start of last year to rehearse, then we finally put (tour) dates on the calendar in July, then in September we jumped again with COVID. So it’s good to be back.

He continued: “It’s different for us, of course, adjusting because we’re used to my older brother (Johnny) being the one in the middle and being part of the group. We have been playing together for over 30 years. It was an adjustment.

Los Palominos moved the batsman Julio Arreola on accordion taking over from Johnny and added a new drummer. The band plans to celebrate 30 years in Tejano music at Vegas Tejano Music Week on Friday, July 8, 2022, in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Nortex Live! in Monterrey, Mexico on July 30, 2022.
