Los Pacaminos ride into town! ...

Yee-hah! The Apex becomes the cantina setting for a great night's rocking, when the Stetson-wearing magnificent seven, Los Pacaminos ride into town!

Eighties ‘blue-eyed soul’ singer Paul Young teams up with some of the best musicians in the business, to play Tex-Mex classics, Spanish songs and original material that falls somewhere between Mexican Mariachi, Americana and Country/Blues.

The Tequila-fuelled, cactus-sharp, Los Pacaminos play music by the likes of The Texas Tornadoes, Ry Cooder and Los Lobos, with songs like ‘Wooly Bully’, 'La Bamba' and 'Speedy Gonzales'.

Paul Young’s solo hits in the 1980s include ‘Every Time You Go Away’, ‘Wherever I Lay My Hat’ and ‘Love Of The Common People’, but what started out as an entertaining side-project for Paul in the early 1990s is still going strong 24 years later. Paul says - "Los Pacaminos started out just for fun, playing simply for the pleasure of it, and it just took off from there. It's real bar room stuff, foot stompers, not too many slow songs - a real party atmosphere."

Tex-Mex music is somewhere between the Mariachi and Norteno styles of Mexico and the Country/Blues sounds of South-West America. The band is influenced by Ry Cooder, Flaco Jimenez, The Texas Tornados and Los Lobos. Mix that together with blues, rock 'n' roll and a hint of South American music and you have Los Pacaminos. Their set includes songs like 'Wooly Bully', 'La Bamba' and sometimes, if enough tequila is flowing, 'Speedy Gonzales'. Even their own original material sounds like authentic well-worn classics played by your favorite bar band on a hot and humid night!

The band members have all played in Paul Young's bands through the 1980's and 90's, so their friendships stretch back 20 to 30 years. It's these long term connections that underpin the very special atmosphere generated at a Los Pacaminos show. So, bring your amigos – it’s a great night out for the good, the bad, and the ugly!

Paul Young & Los Pacaminos play at The Apex on Friday 27 January at 8pm. Tickets are £17.50 standing or £20 seated, ring the box office on 01284 758000 or see the website - www.theapex.co.uk for details.
