“The Krayolas stayed true to their original inspirations and influences: an assortment of bands from the British Invasion, Nuggets-era garage rock, Bob Dylan and their Tex-Mex roots (including the late Doug Sahm, Flaco Jimenez and Augie Meyers). ‘Tormenta’ is the perfect summertime party disc.”

Known as the Tex-Mex Beatles, the Chicano garage rockers have garnered flattering comparisons to the Fab Four, Bob Dylan, the Who, Elvis Costello, Nick Lowe and Warren Zevon. The Krayolas have been profiled in Texas Monthly, The Washington Post, New York Times, The New Yorker, Paste, Pollstar, Rolling Stone, NPR’s “All Things Considered,” “Alt-Latino” and MTV, and are regulars on SIRIUS XM “Little Steven’s Underground Garage,” Dave Marsh’s “Kick Out the Jams,” KUTX and Ray Wylie Hubbard’s “Roots and Branches of Americana.”
In 2014, the Krayolas were inducted into the Texas Music Office’s South Texas Music Walk of Fame.
