A magical evening of fairies, mages and other creatures, we arrived to the magic forest in Pylewell crossing the beautiful New Forest National Park on a sunny summer evening, past Southampton. Native ponies and free roaming cows, beautiful vegetation, and water ponds and canals welcomed us.
Los Amigos band were attending a joint Birthday Party (50th, 21st and 18th) so the guests were of all ages and they all enjoyed a big paella and local ale.
We worked our own magic in our instruments, and we didn’t disappoint, even Harry Potter would marvel at our skills, and we had a lovely evening of magical music and dancing. Thank you for having us.
The past weeks we have performed at a few lovely weddings, including Sarah & Adam at the beautiful Mitton Hall, Luke & Laura in a tent in the countryside in Norfolk, the birthday of Sarah Holtby, also the wedding of Jessica de Sousa at the spectacular Rowton Castle in Shrewsbury, and Natasja Milton at Hampton Court House, another beautiful location.
We also took part at Harry & Tara’s beautiful wedding in Cheshire, and Claudia & Sam’s at Woldingham school in Surrey.
The weather has been very good in July, lots of sun, and our music is perfect for the many events we have also been part of, such as a Galapagos Conservation Trust Charity Event held at Bridgewater House in central London, TPG Capital Summer Party at the roof of the Ham Yard Hotel, the Regent Street Summer Festival, and the Color Zoom UK party, where we played as a 6 piece band for about 500 women! I felt like Justin Bieber 😀
As the song “Despacito” by Luis Fons and ft. Daddy Yankee is being requested more and more in our gigs, specially after the new version with Justin Bieber, we have done an impromptu unplugged version of it waiting between sets in a wedding at the beautiful gardens of Hampton Court House. Enjoy!
With the lovely weather we are having in June, we have been very busy performing at different events. Los Amigos music is the perfect sound for the summer and sunshine, for celebration and good times! We have been in Richmond for the wedding of Nico & Lisa, where we performed the very requested hit of “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi.
The wedding of Yitzhak & Sofia took us to the lovely Tanner Warehouse in Bermondsey, where we had a great time playing during the dinner and then for the party dancing afterwards.
Another lovely wedding in Richmond, by the Thames happened at the Bingham restaurant and hotel, with Phil and Elba tying the knot, where we played and afternoon set in the garden, and another for the party in the evening.
And three more events took us to the Babylon Restaurant in Kensington, for the America’s summer party, and then to Milton Park in Oxfordshire (thanks to lovely Hannah from Miramar) and to a Charity fundraising at High Wycombe, organised by the super friendly Charlotte.
And to finish the week we went to Barnet to the Engagement party of Sophie and George, congratulations!
This weekend we performed at the lovely wedding of Chris & Amanda at Mythe Barn in Leicestershire. The wedding had a Spanish / Mexican theme, colourful “sombreros” and games for the guests, a vintage popcorn cart, and delicious chicken burritos served by the venue’s catering in the evening. We had lots of fun and the bride’s mum Glynis sent us this lovely message:
“I would like to say a big thank you for performing at our daughters wedding at Mythe Barn on Friday 19/5/17. You were amazing. Everyone had a wonderful time and absolutely loved you guys. The staff at the barn said it was one of the best wedding’s to be held there. I will recommend you to anyone looking for a great band that can get a party started and continue to keep them on the dance floor all night. Thank you once again. xx ”
On Saturday we headed south, and after a brief stop at Warwick for lunch, we continued our travel to Chippenham to perform at Gerry’s 50th. She prepared a big marquee and catering in the garden, and although the day started wet with pouring rain, it didn’t dampen our spirits, and together with the 100 assisting guests we had an unforgettable evening of music and dancing!
This is the lovely feedback from Gerry:
“Dear Javier and the rest of the band,
Wow, wow, wow! I had such a brilliant 50th party on Saturday … I couldn’t have wished for anything better. Thank you all so much for making it such a fantastic evening, you really got the party atmosphere going, and kept everyone up and dancing all night. It was such an easy process dealing with you guys, from the first time I contacted Mark at Stormont, I will definitely recommend you to any and everyone! I’ve had so many people commenting on how great the music was and what a great party is was, so I have passed your cards on to them as well as the caterers and tent people too. Thanks again guys – you were top notch!
With best wishes
It was Alexa’s 60th birthday, and her husband Brendan decided to giver her a surprise, with most of her closer friends and family at the secret bar in St Martins Lane Hotel, in the centre of London. Lovely cocktails and drinks awaited the party, and Brendan chose Los Amigos band to entertain the guests, as Alexa loves Spanish, Latin and Brazilian music. As the couple have a house in Marbella, Los Amigos quartet was the perfect choice to celebrate, and we didn’t disappoint.
Lots of dancing and laughter as the evening advanced, we created an electrifying atmosphere and made everyone dance. After our set, the DJ continued the party.
A low key Wedding in a cosy Bermondsey pub, we had a great time performing for Patrick and Emma’s wedding guests. Here we leave you some lovely pictures of our performance – thanks to fantastic photographers Laminas and Juliet, check them out at www.lovestruckphoto.co.uk
Here we leave you with our new cover of John Legend’s song All of Me, with a Latin touch
We have done a swing version of this lovely song, performing as a trio with a laid back vibe.
Recorded by Italian singer-songwriter Domenico Modugno, and Written by Franco Migliacci and Domenico Modugno, it was released as a single on 1 February 1958.
The song is a ballad in a dramatic chanson style, in which Modugno describes the feeling he has, which resembles flying when with his lover.
It has been recorded by many artists, such Dean Martin, David Bowie, and the Gipsy Kings (a version we also play in our live performances)
We hope you enjoy it!
As the first signs of Spring arrive we are now receiving many enquiries and confirming performances for Weddings, Summer parties, Birthdays and celebrations. The weekends of the April-August are starting to fill up, with 25 performances already booked. Enquiries coming from Ibiza, Valencia and France give a bit of extra excitement, but we just love all gigs!
Meanwhile we have just recorded 2 new tracks, and the videos are being edited. We recorded a very nice Latin version of “All of Me” by John Legend that sounds great, and also “Smooth” by Santana which is already a classic in our repertoire.
As soon as they are ready, we will post them in our blog!
Don’t forget to book the band in advance whenever possible, although we always have some last minute slots, and contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for availability and prices.
