UK star brings his ‘Tex-Mex’ band to town on Wednesday, May 18

Seven piece Americana group Los Pacaminos, led by none other than Paul Young, play The Plough Arts Centre in Torrington on Thursday, May 19.

Expect a mix of lively Tex-Mex classics to dance the night away to.

At least one member of this highly respected seven-piece Americana group will be very familiar.

The London-based outfit is led by one of the UK’s finest and best loved vocalists - Paul Young.

Together, some of the best musicians in the business have teamed up to present this mix of Tex-Mex classics that will have you dancing the night away!

As Paul himself says, the emphasis is good music and good times. ‘We sing, we dance, we love…. We drink tequila. Only the good stuff these days!’

The band’s sound came about because of Paul’s love of the music but also the sheer joy of playing it.

He said “I first heard Ry Cooder’s hybrid version of Tex-Mex, and I started to escape into a world of life down by the border, hot weather, good food… we started back in ’92 and it was too much fun to stop.

“I love the lift you get when playing it. We’re all past wanting to play or listen to music that depresses.”
