Who are these guys?
They are, for lack of a more descriptive genre, a Latin/World Music group who perform what they call "California Rumba". This is a style quietly brewing in the clubs and cafes around Southern California and South Beach Miami areas. It is a style influenced by the European and South American Rumba styles, but performed with the aggressiveness of an American Pop/rock attitude.
Their music is very infectious, to say the least.
The group sings in both English and Spanish and in very linguistically versatile. Their audience is very international - east, west, north, and south, and of all ages. They have performed very successfully in and around Southern California for the past several years, as well as, New York, Florida, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Hawaii, Utah, and Mexico.
They had one of their songs from their second CD, ASI LA VIDA, performed in the Warner Bros. film, "Two Weeks Notice" (with Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant). This song, Bailo Con El Ritmo (Dance To The Rhythm) is a very infectious salsa inspired dance number featuring the guitars - simlilar in style but different from the Buena Vista Social Club
From their first CD, CALIFORNIA RUMBA, the song Ven Aca Bonita (Come Here My Lovely One) was chosen by Michael Mann for his latest film, "Collateral". You may remember Michael for his film, "The Last of the Mohecans", among his many and his famed TV series, "Miami Vice". This film features Tom Cruise, Jamie Fox and Jada Pinkett Smith. The Bandidos de Amor were filmed by Michael at the popular EL RODEO nightclub in Pico River, Califonia - performing in a nightclub scene with Jamie Fox along with Calexico (a cool latin band from Phoenix, AR) for this film, "Collateral".
Bandidos de Amor have recorded at Capitol Records Studios two songs that were requested by Dreamworks Films for the major motion picture release of "Paulie". In addition, they appear in that film performing in a cameo role behind Cheech Marin and Tia Texada singing the Bandidos de Amor song, "Estoy Loco - I am crazy" and a cover version of the Los Lobos song, "Cancion del Mariachi".
As they were resting in the trailer during the last night of filming "Paulie". They received a phone call from superstar, Will Smith''s office. It seems that Will Smith had seen the Bandidos de Amor perform at a night club in Beverly Hills and wanted to hire them for a very special occasion. While Will was promoting Men in Black on the east coast of the U.S. he wanted his fiancee (now his wife) Jada Pinkett, to know that he remembered her birthday. So, he hired the Bandidos de Amor to sneak into his estate and serenade his darling under her bedroom window, while Will''s brother videotaped the event. Boy was Jada surprised at 6:00 AM when the band started their private concert on the patio outside her window.
Bandidos de Amor were also contacted during the spring of 2001 to record a song and also to act in the Dreamworks Films, "The Mexican" (starring Brad Pitt and Julia Roberts). A few of the members were flown down to Mexico to appear in one of the scenes accompanied by a group of local Mariachi musicians.
Their reggae original, "Sha La La La" (from the Bandidos de Amor CD, California Rumba) can be heard in "OLE" an independent film originally from Brazil.
Some other of their many credits include:
Performing at one of Hollywood''s grandest parties - the World Premiere of the action blockbuster Mission Impossible II (starring Tom Cruise).
Performing at the Academy of Motion Pictures (Beverly Hills) for the premiere of Noriega (starring Bob Hoskins).
Performing at the premiere of "THE DISAPPEARANCE OF GARCIA LORCA" an excellent independent film directed by Marcos Zurinaga that stars Andy Garcia, at the Directors Guild.
