Gig Review // Los Pacaminos (featuring Paul Young)

Los Pacaminos (featuring Paul Young) and Marshal Bravestar – The Lincoln Imp, Scunthorpe – Thursday 28th September 2017.

Los Pacaminos made their welcome return to The Lincoln Imp in Scunthorpe for a fun night of Americana music.

Support came from Marshal Bravestar, who are a three piece modern rock blues band, with Dan Senior on vocals who can often be found hosting the open mic jam sessions at The Lincoln Imp. It was my first time seeing this band and I really enjoyed them. Good vocals, catchy songs and great tunes performed by a good musicians made for a great start to the evening.Los Pacaminos then performed 2 sets of Americana country music. From the moment the sirens started for the opening of “Highway Patrol” to the end of the second set, the crowd were into every moment, even screaming for an encore at the end which unfortunately didn’t come.

Many fans had seen Los Pacaminos perform before, many at The Lincoln Imp on the bands last visit, with many others becoming fans after the bands fantastic performance. This was my first time seeing the band.

The band, who have been together for about 25 years, feature 80s popstar Paul Young as a member. There were a lot of people I heard say that the real Paul Young wouldn’t perform in Scunthorpe. Well I was there and I can tell you it was the real deal and a simple google search would have told you that as well. Los Pacaminos are a fun party band, with great musicians, fantastic storytelling and catchy tunes.

Some lucky female fans were even invited on stage as Tequila girls to hand out shots to the band as they performed the Tequila song. This band deserve much better recognition than they get and I can’t wait to see them again.
