Los Pinguos brought their music to Los Alamos three years ago, making the Trinity Beverage Company explode with their Argentine tango, salsa, and mambo music. So much dynamite powered the performance that Los Alamos Summer Concert Series producer Russ Gordon has been working to get the band to return.
He succeeded. Friday, the band will once again entertain the crowds of Los Alamos starting at 7 p.m. at 15th Street and Central Avenue.
Gordon is not the only one pleased with the band’s return. Adrian Buono, lead singer, described their last concert in Los Alamos as “the best show we’ve had because of the people.”
“They treat us very good,” he said, “A lot of people come, enjoy and dance.”
According, to the band’s website, www.lospinguos.com, they are originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina. They feature a mixture of Latin rhythms performed on Spanish guitars, a Cuban Tres, Peruvian cajn or drum box and harmonizing vocals.
“(It’s) great dance music with a rock ‘n’ roll influence,” Gordon said. “(It’s) high energy. They’re tremendous.”
