Giovannie and the Hired Guns February 25-26, 2023

Giovannie and the Hired Guns was the surprise success story of 2022.  Their song Ramon Ayala went to number one on not one but two charts. This is the first time since 2006 that an artist’s first career-charting radio single reached No. 1 at both Alternative and Active Rock.

Los Lonely Boys

LA Lloyd actually recorded this episode in Gio’s limo on Congress Avenue in Austin, TX at the historic Paramount Theatre.  It’s the perfect match as Giovannie and the Hired Guns was touring with Los Lonely Boys and as you can see from the marquis below, fans love it as this one was SOLD OUT!


It’s no surprise of the difficulty in selecting a follow-up single to a smash like Ramon Ayala.  However, heartache can lead to success as Gio tells the story of writing his first song after a teen romance that ended up breaking his heart but led to creativity.  Years later, heartache still rears its ugly head but this time it’s a hit in the song Overrated.
