The Guitar Locos
(As a duo and a trio)
Suspend, surprise and mesmerise you with musical mastery and hilarious visual comedy.

They Play their Guitars like “Paco De Lucia”
They Sing like “Pavarotti” and Rumba like “Gypsy Kings”.
They Spin, Flip, and Fly their Flamenco Guitarras, while popping ping pong balls, and smashing eggs and cliches.

All for the love of “Maria”… In a comic universe, where all hombres are called “Carlos”.

This trio of eccentric characters immediately strike a chord with the audience; competing with their guitars, their voices, and their energy…
 
Get Ready to Go “Loco!”
For the “Ole!” Comedy Show!

 
If you’ve never seen them – go! If you have – go again!
– The Independent

You’d have to be dead not to enjoy this show. Rarely have I seen an audience ‘get it’ so quickly.
