Co-founded by former Doritos Mariachi band member, Farman Hernandez possesses over 30 years experience playing not only Mexican mariachi music, but a broad assortment of Latin America musical genres. His well rounded playing experience, and his exposure for performing for high profile audiences, such as BBC Graham Norton Show, as well as a variety of reputable brands such as Mini and Doritos has established Farman as one of the UK's first rate Mariachi musicians. Complemented by a passionate, friendly and exceptional band of musicians, with decades of musical playing experience, The Mexican Way is remarkably placed to deliver an exceptional musical performance guarantee to give your function or event a vibrant and memorable experience. From an early age, Farman has always had an affinity with music. He first learned how to play the guitar at the age of 12, and eventually went on to study music and singing vocalisation. By his late teens, Farman participated in numerous musical presentations and competitions, performing mariachi serenades as well as other latin musical styles. Farman has been part of a number of authentic Mexican bands, taking part in television gigs as well as having the opportunity to perform in front of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana. Farman went on to form his own Latin American band specialising in delivering an assortment of different musical styles for events and corporate functions. He even had the privilege to perform for widely known Bond actor Roger Moore. Many years later, having met founder of ‘The Mariachis’, Farman joined the group as an integral part of the band and along with the group went on to perform for various celebrities, television shows, music festivals as well as making appearances for renowned brands. Notably, Farman formed part of the Doritos Mariachi band and received exposure as an animated figure of the television campaigns. Farman has now decided to form a new Mexican Mariachi band, with an exceptionally experienced group of musicians, The Mexican Way is perfectly positioned as well as committed to delivering a truly lively and immersive Mariachi band experience.

These guys are amazing! Super professional and punctual! But above anything else they are exactly what you want to lift the whole atmosphere of a party. We booked them for after our wedding breakfast, before the DJ and every single person loved them! They really set the tone to see off a magical day! 10/10
