Claire & Russ 27/04/18

We played at the wonderful wedding of Claire & Russ, during the reception drinks in this lovely pub in Lordship Lane, London

We definitely got the party started and got everyone dancing before even sitting down for dinner!

Thank you guys and all the best.

 

 

Wedding Anniversary

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!

Hi Javier

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

Joint Birthday party

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.

Weddings & Events

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 😀

 

Patrick & Emma’s Wedding in Bermondsey 4-3-17

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

 

 

Volare – Swing version

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!
