In the early 1990s in Venezuela, a group of young musicians decided to compose and play music unlike any thing they heard in the clubs of Caracas.

Los Amigos' style is described as disco/funk and is definitely dance music. Amazingly, the original line up is unchanged over their twenty years of playing together.

With an enormous Latin fan base they've garnered numerous award nominations and received a couple of Latin Grammys. "Repeat After Me" is their seventh CD release and true to form is choc a bloc with absolutely great tracks.

In 2000 the group  relocated to New York and since then have shed their invisibility  and will no doubt continue to gather even more ardent friends.

Deirdre as born in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and her first paid work was at the age of 10 with the BBC as an actress on "Children's Hour." She continued to perform regularly on radio and stage for the next eight years, at which point she was informed by her parents that theater was not an option and she needed "real" work.
