Los Hispanos

A five-piece band composed of mostly Latino musicians, who met in Beijing. They shared the same love and passion for Latin music and culture, so forming Los Hispanos was the next natural step.

Exciting rhythms and entertaining musicians makes these nights dynamic. The high energy usually bring people to their feet.
You wont forget this night of Salsa, Bachata, Merengue, Soca and Cha cha cha any day soon.

This is not only music, this is Latino culture. Come and learn from Gilberto, Concha, Elmenson, Kris and Philipe!

"Steven McKinney, lead singer of The Avengers of Music, is starting a new band". The word started going around a few months back, which spiked curiosity and the excitement grew naturally together with pieces the of information we got. He wasn't only starting a new band, he was starting a big band. Will Tavey Lean and The Solid Gold dream machine get some serious competition? I squeezed myself into the tiny practice room at Goza during their rehearsal of No Diggity by Blackstreet. A reggae SKA rhythm was filling the room when I got in, and it was awesome. There ain't enough of those beats in the Beijing Music scene. So a few songs are overlapping from The Avengers set-list, but they are played differently. The Macettes and Mac Daddies adds saxophones and trombone to them, which changes the sound completely.

Hey Steven, how come you decided to overlap some songs from the Avengers?
The Mac Daddies are about 50% Avengers. I kept the songs that are truly special to me, No Diggity being one of them. The Avengers are moving on to more rock, less pop, so I brought the ones the Avengers are less likely to play in the future. Time was also a factor since we had this date booked, but after this first show we will learn new songs.
