Do we entertain fiesta themed parties?


Answer: Por supuesto!


Mariachi:


     We don't receive many requests for mariachi music, maybe a couple each year. Thus far, there haven't been enough requests to invest in adding hours of mariachi to our library. What we offer instead has worked very well as a close substitute.


Fiesta Themed Music:


     Although we have no mariachi music we do cover some Mexican, rock, and other Latin flavored music. These songs have worked very well at Mexican restaurants, country clubs, and private parties. Here are some of the songs we usually perform at fiestas:


Besamé Mucho

Desafinado

Guantanamera

I Will Survive

La Bamba

Quando, Quando, Quando

Señorita

Smooth

Tango Con Mio

The Girl From Ipanema


Latin Jazz:


     The Matt McCallie Orchestra plays a lot of jazz. One of our favorite things to do is to interpret jazz with a Latin feel like a bassa-nova. This works incredibly well for many jazz standards such as:


All Or Nothing At All

Beyond The Sea

Easy To Love

Fly Me To The Moon

How High The Moon

I've Got You Under My Skin

L-O-V-E

Let's Fall In Love

More

Nice Work If You Can Get It

Night And Day

Old Devil Moon

On The Sunny Side Of The Street

Save The Last Dance For Me

Sway

That Old Black Magic

The Way You Look Tonight

Too Marvelous For Words

Unforgettable

Witchcraft

Wonderful Tonight


Fiesta Instrumentation:


     Our most popular setup is a solo singer/guitar player using a compact sound system. This setup works well in busy Mexican restaurants since it takes up little floor space and isn't so loud that it might disturb guests in other rooms. The compact system can also be turned up to accomodate indoor and outdoor parties with up to 150 guests.


     If you'd like a little more fiesta flavor we can add other instruments like a trumpet player to play along in the background and to play solos between vocal parts. Having a soloist enables many of our songs to be extended, which is a good idea for events lasting multiple hours. Another guitar player, bassist, violinist, or sax would also be good options.
