Little Willie G. of Thee Midniters + Cisco Kid + WAR Tribute Band

Little Willie G. of Thee Midniters + Cisco Kid + WAR Tribute Band

Latin Rock Inc. is proud to present one of the most powerful and soulful voices in music today, the Godfather of Brown Eyed Soul, Little Willie G.

Best known as the voice of East LA’s Thee Midniters, whose horn-heavy salsafied soul and Chicano rock has influenced generations of musicians, and earned them god-like status on Whittier Boulevard and beyond, Willie Garcia, better known as Little Willie G, crooned all their 1960s hits including “Sad Girl” and “Land of a Thousand Dances.” Little Willie G., along with “Little Ray” Jimenez, were the brightest singing stars in East L.A.’s golden age of rock & roll.

As lead singer for Thee Midniters, the legendary R&B group from Los Angeles, Little Willie G quickly became known for his iconic and charismatic stage presence, and helped Thee Midniters become one of the first Chicano rock bands to have a hit in the United States. A bona-fide LA treasure, Little Willie G. takes a place alongside Jim Morrison and Arthur Lee as seminal figures in the history of LA rock and roll, and whose voice has not lost a step in over 50 years of performance. One of the most iconic voices of the Eastside Sound, Little Willie G has also dedicated his life to helping youth and families at risk.

Tonight Willie G. brings the East Side to the West Side in Redwood City, for an all-too-rare performance, where he will be performing a spectrum of songs including what he likes to call those ‘neighborhood classics’ Seriously folks- this one is a show for the ages!
