Emilio Navaira IV and Diego Navaira started their Tex-Mex and pop-rock outfit with Jerry Fuentes and Derek James a little more than two years ago. Diego plays bass and does vocals while Emilio plays drums, though he’s not an “official” band member.

The Last Bandoleros played their song “Where Do You Go?” on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, which they said in an interview with Billboard was the whole reason the band got its start.

The brothers said they’re not sure if they’d even be performing if it hadn’t been for their father. They said they’re using their music to cope with his death.

“I love that we’re continuing what he did, but with our own spin on it,” Emilio said. “That makes me feel really, really proud.”
