Act Profile

Los Afables

We are Paul Rushton, Daniel Barea and Dawn Biard and have been playing together for five years. Each of us has spent many years abroad and has picked up musical influences from around the world. Although we have diverse tastes and enjoy playing all kinds of music, Los Afables is an acoustic band with a distinct Latin vibe.

Testimonials

"Los Afables played at our wedding reception on 9th July 2016 and they were absolutely fantastic! The music was so perfect, the entire band were smiley and they were so accommodating. They all looked beyond wonderful in their Hawaiian shirts and we had so many people coming up to tell us how amazing the band were! Huge huge thanks to Alegritos and I look forward to having another event where I can ask them to play! The music selection was perfect, I cannot recommend them enough! Seriously- book this band!!"

Rebecca H.

"We organise the UK's largest exhibition for the mobility sector (The Mobility Roadshow) and this year wanted a band that could entertain exhibitors and visitors alike. Los Afables met the brief brilliantly – creating a chilled, Latino vibe that was a perfect fit for our show. We had lots of positive feedback and would definitely use them again in the future."

Helen P. (Mobility Exhibition at Silverstone Circuit, May 2016

"Los Afables exceeded all expectations They provided an excellent range of music catering for all tastes. A very professional performance with some impressive guitar playing, fab drumming and lovely singing! Everyone really enjoyed the music. Many thanks!"

Helen M. (Wedding Party)

"Los Afables did an amazing two hour set at my 30th birthday garden party that started as chilled background music but soon had most people up and dancing. Lively, fun, hugely warm and friendly and the best addition to the party. Thank you so much!"
