The band have played at all sorts of events, both indoors and out, corporate and private, for large crowds and for two at a table, the soft, romantic glow of a candle… Rapido Mariachi have played in various guises throughout the UK and are here to play for you!
The Counsellors (below) are a seven piece extravaganza of a band. The sound is classic lounge, with a twist of lemon and an extra two fingers of dry Vermouth. Comprised of vocals, three horns (trombone, trumpet and sax), guitar, bass and drums, the band swing from all over the world. Boasting a cosmopolitan line up that has members from Australia, Canada, Brazil, Ireland and Scotland. Combine all these finger clickin’ ingredients and you have a veritable fondue of grooves, taking musical titbits from Dusty Springfield, Doris Day, Aretha Franklin, Patsy Cline, Sammy Davis Jnr and er, The Carpenters.
