Little Willie G.

Little Willie G. sang in one of the most successful bands to come out of East Los Angeles in the early 1960s, Thee Midniters. Willie G (the G stands for Garcia) was always proud of his cultural roots and sang about it on songs such as “Chicano Power,” which was rare at the time. He also scored a hit with their 1964 cover of “The Land of a Thousand Dances.” The following year, the band had an instrumental hit with “Whittier Boulevard.” Throughout his long career in music, Willie has remained passionate about his heritage and about encouraging others to make music!
