The Mariachis are the fun loving guys regularly seen on TV screens across the UK in the Doritos ads. With their versions of pop classics with a Mexican twist that include the Human League’s ‘Don’t You Want Me’, East 17′s ‘Stay Another Day’ and Joan Jett’s ‘I Love Rock & Roll’, they have the whole country singing and partying along.
Formed by Salvador Jimenez Hernandez, the band all hail from South America and currently reside in the UK. Consisting of guitars, accordion and trumpet, all the band members are highly accomplished musicians and singers. The band perform many other pop hits along with traditional Mariachi repertoire including songs like La Bamba, Guantanamera and Lambada.
Having performed acoustically for the Royal family to appearing in front of 30,000 people at the Wireless music festival, they compliment any event no matter how large or small.
The band headlined the Avalon Stage at the Glastonbury Festival and have become the ‘go to’ band for UK TV shows requiring a Mariachi band, with performances on Ant & Dec’s Saturday Night Take-Away, The One Show, Good Morning Britain, A Question of Sport, Let’s Do Lunch, A League of Their Own, Graham Norton, Paul O’Grady, Sunday Morning Live, Peter Andre and Sunday Brunch.
