About Desperados

Mariachi duo, playing the best traditional Mexican, Latin and Spanish hits.
Mariachi band
Public liability insurance of £5 million
Verified profile

The Desperados is a Mariachi/Mexican duo with Jules and Edina. Both of them are accomplished guitarists and playing over 20 years of latin music. They can bring your favourite Mexican songs alive with virtuoso guitar playing and beautiful singing. If you are looking for a smaller set-up for your Mexican/latin themed event, this could be a perfect choice. They can also tailor their setlist for a more traditional Mexican style or mixed with other pop/rock songs with a latin twist. They perform in a costume and happy to blend in with your party (ponchos/sombreros). The PA is included in the quote.

Desperados played at my husbands 40th party and were amazing!! Everyone loved the set and they were so professional. It really made the event so special. We asked for a mix of Spanish and English covers and everyone was dancing!!

The atmosphere in the evening was lovely, and people really enjoyed the performance of Edina's Duo. Really good communication and easy to work with! Definitely would recommend it.
