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 and keeps us working pretty much every Cinco de Mayo.


Fiesta Themed Music:


     Although we play just a few authentic mariachi songs we also cover Mexican, Tex-Mex, rock, and other Latin flavored music that fits in well with a fiesta theme. 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:


Bésame Mucho

Cielito Lindo

Desafinado

Desperado

Diamond Ring

Guantanamera

Havana

Hotel California

I Will Survive

La Bamba

La Cucaracha

Me and My Uncle

Ooh-La, La-La

Paint it Black

Quando, Quando, Quando

Ring of Fire

Save the Last Dance For Me

Señorita

Smooth

Sway

Tango Con Mio

The Girl From Ipanema

Walk Hard


Latin Jazz:


     The Matt McCallie Orchestra performs 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 of Me

All or Nothing at All

All the Things You Are

Autumn Leaves

Beyond the Sea

But Not for Me

Can't Take My Eyes Off of You

Cry Me a River

Easy to Love

Fly Me to the Moon

How High The Moon

I Remember You

I've Got You Under My Skin

It's All Right with Me

L-O-V-E

Let's Fall In Love

Love Is Here to Stay

Moondance

More

My Blue Heaven

Nice Work If You Can Get It

Night and Day

Old Devil Moon

On an Evening in Roma

On the Sunny Side of the Street

Peel Me a Grape

Pick Yourself Up

That Old Black Magic

That's Amore

The Look of Love

The Way You Look Tonight

Too Marvelous For Words

Unforgettable

Witchcraft

Wonderful Tonight


Fiesta Instrumentation:


     Our most popular configuration 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.
