Los Pacaminos [Tex-Mex]
FriFeb162018Los Pacaminos (Tex-Mex) at Ruislip Social Club, Ruislip Los Pacaminos are a band you can absolutely count on for a great night out!While the name may mean little to music lovers, at least one member of this highly respected group will be very familiar.The Tex-Mex outfit is led by one of the UK’s finest and best loved vocalists - Paul Young.Paul is not the only luminary in the seven piece band, however. Some of the best musicians in the business have teamed up topresent the incendiary mix of Tex-Mex classics, Spanish songs and original material that make up the music of Los Pacaminos.Los Pacaminos first came together in 1995, the result of Paul’s desire to get back to basics. As he explains “I was between recordlabels and writing material for a new album but I wanted to play live again. I’ve always loved the Tex-Mex sound and knew a fewmusicians who had a similar passion for this type of music. So I asked them to join me in forming a band.It started out just for fun, playing simply for the pleasure of it, and it just took off from there. What’s really nice is that everyoneelse in the band can sing too, and they do, all in their own very different styles. It’s real bar room stuff, foot stompers, nottoo many slow songs – a real party atmosphere!”As for the name… “Los Pacaminos? It means nothing! It’s a nonsense phrase we chose, which is close to the term “Pack’em in”meaning the audience. Apparently it is also similar to an Argentine name for street boys which is OK too!”Tex-Mex music is somewhere between the Mariachi and Norteno styles of Mexico and the country/blues sounds ofSouth-Western America. The band empathises with Ry Cooder, Flaco Jiminez, The Texas Tornadoes, Los Lobos andSir Douglas Quintet. (Their set includes songs like “Wooly Bully” the national anthem “La Bamba” and sometimes, if enough tequilais flowing, even “Speedy Gonzales”…)Paul Young and the boys return to bring us some Tex-Mex shinanigans8.30pm - midnight Info »
