Mariachi Tequila are a fun, lively Mariachi band with an excellent reputation from TV, festivals, weddings and parties. They have been playing professionally for over 18 years, and they gained their massive reputation from their great cover versions of English rock and pop songs.
They also play traditional mariachi songs, well-known Latin hits, as well as the mariachi versions of Pop songs if requested . They can perform acoustically, moving around a room, or through a PA system at larger events, and wear the colourful authentic Mariachi uniforms and sombreros.
Flexible in size from 3-8+ musicians, according to budget and taste, though 3 and 4 are most commonly booked.
You have probably seen them all over the Press, TV and Social Media in July 2018 as the face of the Daily Mirror newspaper, who renamed them the "Mirrorarchi" band for the anti-Trump campaign!
They have been on TV many times (BBC Strictly, Graham Norton, 9 out of 10 Cats, and many more) and are regular faces at festivals and public events (such as the 2016 Facebook Summer Party and Hyde Park Festival) as well as hundreds of weddings and birthday parties. They are lively and charismatic performers, genuine Latino musicians, and their great vibe proves they are a band with regular musicians used to performing together. They are the most reliable band for travelling long distances around the UK and still arriving early!

"Very professional team: they arrived ahead of time, took all my requests into consideration (even the most outlandish ones) and performed really well.
Would definitely recommend them to anyone who has a function similar to mine"

"Excellent - would have rated. them even higher than 5!
They were even better than we could have expected, providing a brilliant extra at our wedding celebration. They played 2 great sets of a mix of traditional Mariachi and Western pop covers with energy and a sense of fun and joy, and suggested a surprise entry to the party which went down a storm. They showed great professionalism in catching up on their planned schedule and an enthusiastic performance after traffic delays on the way following a major road closure.
Would definitely recommend them."

The band were fantastic, they strolled through to the back garden playing their instruments to suprise our guests and they did. For their second set they set up their amp and performed their modern covers, great fun and certainly added to the event.

"The band arrived on time, set up quickly and quietly in the garden, and did two sets with a short refreshment break.
They were professional, looked fabulous, were approachable, and just an absolute pleasure to have. They entertained our guests brilliantly, and everyone commented on how fantastic they were.
