Los Tres Amigos

Why book Los Tres Amigos?

Greetings, I am Luis Trevino, an established independent musician-trumpeter-vocalist. I specialize in Jazz, Latin, and Mariachi Spanish music since 1995 (also the band leader of the Soft Note Combo since 1996 and the former Latin Rhythms Salsa-Merengue Band from 1995 - 2009). In addition to performing for private fiestas and wedding ceremonies, I also specialize in playing Honer melodica in my one man shows for more show variety which covers wedding receptions, corporate events, fundraisers, and private parties. My music is composed of Mexican, Latin-jazz, salsa and merengue grooves, and variety standards & pop Latin music. I sing in English, Spanish, and some Portuguese.

Luis has performed at our annual Christmas party for several years. Everyone enjoys the music and his humor. His music takes you to far away places like Brazil or Paris. A great time was had by all!

Review by Angie J.

Luis provided the music for our Open House/Wedding reception. He was thoroughly enjoyed by all. He set a wonderful tone for the event and we received comments on him for weeks. Booking was a breeze, he showed up early, started playing on schedule, and fulfilled his full time commitment without taking a break! I highly recommend Luis.

I had the privilege to work with Dr. Luis Trevino as a member of the Hispanic Advisory Committee during the Hispanic Heritage Month festivities at Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC)and Dr. Trevino's band played on our event at NASA/MSFC. Dr. Trevino's music was the highlight of the event for several years. I'm please to recommend Dr. Trevino's band for any activity.

Overview

My one man show provides broad mix of popular standards, jazz, classic standards, Latin, Spanish (including mariachi), Salsa grooves, tropical, and Bossa Nova. Weddings are highly structured to accommodate the reception schedule. Vocals are included in my shows but limited on overall mood of the event. No breaks are taken if possible: the music never ends.

Approximately one hour before the start of the event, the music equipment and bandstand will be set up. The One Man show typically takes 20-30 minutes to set up. For the Soft Note Combo and the Latin Rhythms Band it takes about 30-45 minutes and will guarantee timely music for your event.

Additional Booking Notes

- Will provide own music public address system (i.e. speakers, amps, microphones, etc.)
- Will Dress accordingly for the event
- No deposit required
- Contract is optional
- Travel beyond 150 miles may entail lodging and will be factored into the pricing
- Weddings: will work with couple to help select song list and work with wedding coordinator to ensure successful event
- If part of the actual wedding ceremony I will attend the rehearsal
- Attire will be commensurate with event (e.g., tropical fiesta will entail tropical attire)

Los Tres Amigos

From my one band concept to employing more musicians I can offer a broad range of solutions for your musical/entertainment needs for your event. I can provide:

Wedding ceremonial music - able to attend rehearsal and perform with organist or solo.

One Man Band - variety of music, cozy events, background music, dinner music, corporate events, fundraisers.

Soft Note Combo - 3 to 4 musicians, lively, danceable, larger venues, wedding receptions, corporate events, balls, parties. Music here will be composed of jazz and soft salsa including merengue (low key), Brazilian, and pop standards. [Active from 1996 through current]

Latin Rhythms Band - 6 to 7 musicians, robust energetic sounds, dance music, salsa, merengue, Latin rock, club scene, outdoor festivals (e.g., Birmingham's City Stages, Panoply, etc.). [Active from 1995 through 2009]

The Three Amigos Group- 3 musicans performing classic mariachi music with uniforms, traditional folk music, Spanich lyrics, lively presence! [Active from 2009 through current]

Since 1996 I have been the band leader for the 4 piece Soft Note Combo (softnotecombo.com) and the seven piece Latin Rhythms Band (latinrhythmsband.com) since 1995. In 2003 & 2004 the Soft Note Combo twice was the opening act for the world renowned Glenn Miller Orchestra at the Von Braun Center (VBC) in Huntsville Alabama. In 2007 and 2008 the Latin Rhythms Band was the opening act at the VBC, respectively, for Cuban saxophonist Paquito D' Rivera (and his Latin band with the Huntsville Symphony Orchestra conducted by Mexico's Carlos Miguel Prieto) and flautist (flute) Nestor Torres (and his Latin Cuban band). Both artists are Latin Grammy winners in the Latin Jazz genre.

The first CD for the Latin Rhythms Band is titled Lost Paradise and was released in 2004 featuring the styles of Latin Jazz, salsa, meringue, bachata, bolero, guaguanco, and originals. Music can be purchased at www.cdbaby.com/cd/latinrhythmsband

The first CD for the Soft Note Combo is titled Sketches of Latin Rhythms and was released in 2007 and features the styles of jazz, Latin jazz, samba, originals, and salsa & rock flavors including tropical and bossa nova (music can be sampled in this site and at http://SoftNoteCombo.com).

My One Man Show stage gear is composed of
Benge professional trumpet
Transzort Music Controller
Full PA system (main speakers, amp, microphones & stands)
Honer Melodica (piano keys wind instrument)
Roland RS-70 Keyboard Synthesizer
Vocals
Programmed music tracks & laptop
Valve trombone
Congas
Assortment of Latin percussion

I sincerely look forward to the opportunity to provide my services for your future events requiring live music. Depending on your needs, I am able to provide my one man show including supply musicians and perform as a duo to a full quartet jazz band (Soft Note Combo) including up to a 7 piece Latin band (Latin Rhythms Band, for higher energetic salsa & meringue Latin rock and grooves). And don't forget the Three Amigos concept:lively mariachi music!

Warmest regards & best wishes on your next event!

Influences & Inspiration

Playing with the Latin Rhythms Band (salsa, merengue, Latin rock) since 1995 has provided the depth to perform live, feel the overall ambience, and provide a nice musical atmoshpere for any event. In addition, being the opening act for Grammy winner Paquito D' Rivera and his Cuban band (2007) and for Grammy winner Flute player Nestor Torres (2008) has enabled higher standards in show and presence.

Playing with the Soft Note Combo jazz band has provided a deeper perspective to performing for corporate events, coat & tie events, and wedding receptions since 1996. Being the opening act twice for the world renown Glenn Miller Orchestra has contributed to our professionalism in performance.
