Last week I played for Manchester City Football team during a private dinner, shame Pep Guardiola wasn’t there, I would have liked to shake his hand after growing up watching him as a player at FC Barcelona.
Sorry I don’t have any photos with the players, they didn’t ask me for one as they probably didn’t realise who was entertaining them… 😉
Thank you to all Pier 64 Wine Bar and Steakhouse lovely staff and for the steak dinner, in Penarth, near Cardiff.
I leave you some photos of another 2 weddings where I performed in Liverpool and Dorset.

Congratulations to singer and guitarist Javier Moreno for being the winner of the LUKAS AWARDS 2014 in the category of Vocalist of the year. Javier has also been selected as Runner up as Musician of the year.
The Latin-UK AwardS (LUKAS) is the world’s first ever awards ceremony to recognise the contribution of Britain’s one million Latin American, Spanish and Portuguese residents. It is a fantastic, colourful, and entertaining celebration of Britain’s rapid growing passion for all things Latino.
The LUKAS is now in its 3rd year and growing astonishingly quickly. After a spectacular 2nd year that saw ballet star Tamara Rojo, fashion queen Vivienne Westwood, and Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour join our presenters, TV stars Boris Izaguirre and Yanet Fuentes, in congratulating the award winners, the LUKAS gala ceremony has grown into an international event.
The LUKAS 2013 became the most media covered Latin event in UK history. It made national TV news in the UK (BBC), Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, on Latin regional channels such as ESPN and UNIVISION. It was covered by more than 90 press, radio and TV media and 6,000 social media and websites, reaching over 10 million people. Whilst the UK voted for its favourite Latin dancers, musicians, footballers and restaurants, the global media coverage created a surge of voting from Latin America itself, each country supporting its footballers and compatriots abroad.
One of my successful projects, rocking since 2010, is this band.
Los Amigos is a unique Spanish and Latin party band based in London, available for weddings, parties, celebrations, corporate entertainment and private events in the UK. Playing a repertoire of Spanish and Latin American music – Spanish rumba, Cuban son and danceable Latin hits to move your feet non-stop.
Imagine the Buenavista Social club meets the Gipsy Kings and they go to have a mojito.
Available as a duo, trio or 4 piece band, this is a unique wedding band that will add the icing to your cake for your wedding music.
The amazing flamenco group from London to the World.
When you have experienced the breathtaking momentum of this group, you realise you have just seen something spectacular and unique; the speed and power of the feet stomping of Lourdes, the raw captivation of the flamenco guitar of Andres, and the amazing vocals of Javier, and how it all melts in a magic and passionate performance.
Alma Gitana are quickly earning a reputation in the Flamenco and World Music scene, with all his shows selling out, and raving reviews and testimonials about the group’s passion and quality.
Lourdes Fernandez: dance
Andres Garcia: guitar
Javier Moreno: vocals
