Formed in 2013, Mariachi Las Adelitas UK are an exclusive all female professional and completely authentic mariachi band.
They are not to be confused with any of the local comedy mariachi acts; infact they have recently returned from playing at the prestigious Mariachi Women's festival in L.A, California where they received a standing ovation, and were featured playing live on both Univision and Telemundo T.V channels, with their interviews published in several American and European publications.
They recently serenaded Salma Hayek and her family for her birthday celebration in London, and have also played for Sophie Ellis Baxtor. Past events include the British, Mexican, and U.S Embassies, Disney, the Camden Roundhouse, The British museum and the V&A, Stephen Webster, to name a few.
Officially a 7-piece band with 2 trumpets, 2 Violins, Guitar, Vihuela and Guitarron, 3 lead singers and tight vocal harmonies by the entire band, they can also play in smaller groups if required.
Members have many years of experience on their instruments and in the mariachi style, and also look great!
They have several different spectacular outfits handmade in Mexico, and clients may choose the theme which best suits their event.
They are available to play serenades as per the Mexican tradition, as well as festivals, cultural events and absolutely any kind of celebration. All of the mariachi classics are included in their repertoire, with some beautiful arrangements of well-known songs including classics in English arranged in authentic mariachi style, which means the band really can tailor it’s repertoire to suit any occasion.
Travel is no problem, the band drives all over the UK and are happy to travel worldwide.
They can happily play completely acoustically, or with small amplifiers, which are provided at no extra cost. They also have a PA system available.

Simply fantastic - Anita and the crew were EXACTLY what our party needed. They arrived bang on time, were excellent communicators throughout and played two wonderful sets. The quality of the musicianship is superb and they even learned a song for us in advance. Cannot recommend highly enough.

"Mariachi Adelitas were amazing at my wife’s 40th Birthday Party. My wife’s from the home of Mariachi - Guadalajara, Mexico - and she really loved them.
Amazing singer and musicians gave us an authentic Mexican experience. Very professional, very entertaining, looked amazing and lots of fun.

Our company was launching our Tequila Lore Set and the ladies definitely made our evening more colourful. They were excellent and it was a complete surprise for our guests and everyone absolutely loved them. Las Adelitas set a great atmosphere for our evening. They played 2 sets between the courses and dessert and improvised a surprise birthday song for one of our guests. Very entertaining and highly recommended.

The Mariachi Las Adelitas arrived in good time, looked stunning and moved graciously amongst our guests and performed beautifully. Went down very well with our guests. The band had the skill to recognise and pitch to a very mixed audience. Would highly recommend for any occasion.
Hastings Fat Tuesday Festival• March 5, 2019
We went to see Mariachi Las Adelitas in Hastings after watching one Youtube video and they blew me (and everyone that saw them) away!! We followed them to three venues (in favour of other bands we'd gone to see) as the experience was too good to miss out on. The costumes, the charming introductions and the joie de vivre of their performances were all first class as were there choice of songs. I can't recommend them enough (even if you have no knowledge or interest in Mariachi) as they are the most refreshing and enjoyable band I have seen in some time. Can't wait to see them again. Steve, Brighton.
