A cold November Sunday, but sunny, took us to the beautiful area of Farncombe and Godalming, in Surrey, where Frances & Stephen booked us to celebrate their 30th Wedding Anniversary.
We immediately felt the warmest welcome by all the family, who live in a beautiful Old Farmhouse full of character, and a long table was delightfully prepared for lunch in the barn.
We performed our classic Spanish and Cuban sounds, to the pleasure of the guests, who enjoyed homemade chicken pie and dessert, to the sounds of Chan chan, and other Buenavista Classics.
Thank you for having us!
This month we continue with lots of lovely events, we want to say thank you all for having us, it has been wonderful to be part of your special days and celebrations, Vince & Cecilia at Tom’s Kitchen in Chelsea, Alessandra at Paradise by way of Kensal Green, Sam & Tom Wedding in a family Barn in Essex, and Jess & Camilo’s Wedding at Easton Grange Wedding Venue.
We leave you the lovely feedback from Vince:
Just wanted to say another huge thank you for helping to make our wedding such a huge success on Sunday. I have had so many comments about how amazing you guys were. Cecilia and I absolutely loved your music and thank you so much for learning both songs that I requested. They are special songs to us and it meant so much to hear them.
We are so pleased you guys were able to perform at our wedding – you were absolutely fantastic. Hopefully we may find our way down to Streatham some time when you guys play one of your evening sessions.
Thanks so much once again
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!
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 email@example.com for availability and prices.
Los Amigos Band
This week Los Amigos Quartet performed at a lovely party for some crew members of Monarch Airlines, at the Cotswolds Water Park and Conference Centre.
With a Spanish Theme, Los Amigos were perfect for the occasion, and entertained the mostly female audience while they enjoyed some food, and later we got everyone dancing and warm up the party for the DJ!
On the same week, on another event we also performed for the Birthday party of Marella Oppenheim, at the wonderful Italian restaurant San Lorenzo in Beauchamp Place, Knightsbridge. We leave you with some photos of the events.
