Placing themselves squarely in Americana music, Los Pacaminos must be the first Tex-Mex band to have formed in the UK. Growing from an idea put forward by 80s star Paul Young, the band was formed in 1992 to appease his desire as a solo act to be part of a band again, pick up a guitar again, and not be the centre of attention. Although setting out to play Tex-Mex style, over the 28 years they have played together they have absorbed the influence of other ‘border artists’ such as Ry Cooder and the Texas Tornados The other band members are guitarist Jamie Moses (Queen, Tom Jones, Mike & The Mechanics, The Pretenders), songwriter Drew Barfield (The Keys, The Big Heat, songs for Joe Jackson, Paul Young, Level 42, Cathy Dennis), Pedal Steel guitarist Melvin Duffy (Squeeze, Robbie Williams, First Aid Kit, The Waterboys, Ray Davies), Bassist Stevie Greetham (Paul Young, Joan Armatrading, Tim Finn, Julia Fordham), drummer Mark Pinder (Paul Young, Alison Moyet) and newest member on accordion/keys Steve “Woody” Oakman (Paul McCartney, Chris Montez, Little Eva, Tony Christie). Lead vocals are shared between Paul, Jamie & Drew with songs being specifically written or chosen for each personality. This is a Tequila fuelled Tex Mex party night, as each venue becomes the perfect cantina setting for a great night’s rocking with the cactus sharp, tequila filled, stetson wearing, magnificent Los Pacaminos!
