The Almeria/Murcia cover band are celebrating their 10th Anniversary, they continue to build their fanbase each week and show no sign of slowing down anytime soon. 


The band formed in 2009 by Alejandro Sanchez and Juan Alberto Porlan with the intent to remember and reminisce the great successes that marked the music industry throughout the years, right up to the present day.

They bring a unique sound and essence to the stage, no matter how big or small the venue. Their chemistry is like no other, they know how to tease the senses and bring electricity to a room full of people, while making you smile from cheek to cheek. 


Over the years, the band have had several changes and at the moment, the band consists of;
