Los Pacaminos - featuring a certain Paul Young - play at Spalding's South Holland Centre in January

If you grew up in the '80s you’ll remember the smooth vocals of British singer and songwriter Paul Young.

Who can’t forget pop hits such as ‘Love of the Common People,’ ‘Wherever I Lay My Hat,’ and ‘Every Time You Go Away’?

In the early '90s he went in a completely different direction, forming Tex-Mex band Los Pacaminos.

And they’re coming to Spalding’s South Holland Centre in January.

The band says the spirit of Tex-Mex lies somewhere between the 'Mariachi and Norteno styles of Mexico' and the 'Country/Blues sounds of South-West America'.

The full line-up, alongside frontman Paul, includes Drew Barfield, Mark Pinder, Steve Greetham, Jamie Moses and Melvin Duffy (dubbed the UK’s premier pedal steel player).

Audiences are promised to expect ‘a fun-filled night of live Tex-Mex music’ as the band play Border music from The Texas Tornadoes and Ry Cooder, Los Lobos and even Roy Orbison.
