Mas Y Mas is highly recommended

"Thank you so much for playing at our wedding and creating such a funky
vibe - we have received so many comments about how fantastic you were and
how everyone enjoyed the music you played. The music appealed to all our
guests, both young and old, and created a really cool, rhythmic and fun
atmosphere to which you just have to tap your feet and dance! You fitted in
so well with our exotic island theme and we couldn't have asked for a better
goup to finish off our special day in such inspirational style.

Tim would have no hesitation in working with you again, should the
opportunity arise, and I am off to buy the CD and to see where I could come
and see you play next! We wish you all the best and hope to see you play
again sometime in the future."

Mas Y Mas's Biography

Line up: 3 piece band: guitar/vocals, double bass/vocals, percussion/vocals.

Más Y Más are an acoustic power trio. Sung in Spanish their songs of fiesta, love and unity are an irresistible meeting of Latino Flamenco and Afro-Cuban influences woven together by driving dance rhythms. Great for dancing, this music brings people of all ages and backgrounds together to share in joy and alegria! 

Now in their Thirteenth year together this union of three experienced and well-respected musicians has played to enthusiastic audiences all over the world.

Más Y Más raise the temperature wherever they play.

"They are proper musicians in that they have been charming their instruments for years - long enough to embrace the audience in the splendour and mystery that this level of accomplishment can provide"

"Mas Y Mas were friendly & professional from first contact. The performance was exactly what we hoped for and more & more. They created a fantastic atmosphere from mellow laid back sounds to a rousing passionate performance that got everyone on the dance floor. Thanks guys! I wouldn't hesitiate to recommend them to anyone."

Más Y Más have had many years of playing both at internationally acclaimed music venues festivals arts theatres promotions private functions weddings and corporate events. 

A Great Dance Band!

The Band
Rikki Thomas-Martinez - Guitarist Lead Vocalist and Songwriter:
From Anglo-Spanish origins Cross-cultural musical traveller Rikki Thomas-Martínez has moved with his Spanish guitar within the sonic worlds of Latin Flamenco Asian and western music and now sets Más Y Más ablaze with a uniquely hot flavoured style. Half Spanish and half Welsh he writes and sings in Spanish English and French. – Taught and mentored by El Entri one of Spain’s greatest Flamenco Guitar masters, Rikki Thomas-Martinez has brought his very Spanish/Latin musical influences to Más Y Más. He has suffused them with the sensibilities of a songwriter brought up on a diet of Marley, Dylan and other English-speaking writers. This is not fusion music. It is original music from bred from a man with a Mestizo heart.

Wayne D. Evans - Double Bassist and Vocalist:
Wayne D. Evans brings to the double bass a fiery musical talent and passion for the low end of the sound rainbow. He has woven a compelling and driving style on his old brown wooden instrument, soaring vocals and original songs.

Richard Kensington - Percussion and Vocals:
Conguero Richard Kensington keeps the floor heaving with his relentless rhythmic charge. Having developed a unique style combining congas, bass drum, Cajon and clave, he uses this massive percussion sound to drive the music of Más Y Más.

"It is my pleasure to write you a positive statement. We had a lovely time enjoying your wonderful music. We could have listened to at least another hour of your playing. One of your clients gave you ten stars rating and I can easily double that. It is not only the music but your polite and welcoming professionalism gave us the ease of communicating. Please keep up the good work and best of luck for the future. "

"‘Más Y Más brought Latin warmth and sunshine to a rainy Northumberland afternoon with irrepressible rhythms, songs and loads of personal charm. This band works well in a concert setting: you can tell the audience would leap up and dance if they could, but there is plenty in the music and presentation to content them with foot stomping and wild hand-clapping"

"Más Y Más brought their sun drenched Latin rhythms to an overcast Festival Sunday afternoon - Taking the audience with them on a journey into the familiar and not so familiar and by virtue of their fine musicianship coupled with a great sense of fun they managed amongst a myriad of great acts to make themselves one of those that people remembered with a smile.... oh and the CD is pretty good as well"

"One of my favourite workshops this year was the hilarious session from UK's Mas Y Mas. These plucky lads from Nottingham who sing in Spanish, offered insights into how they made their music but with such a light touch that everyone was laughing and jumping around at the same time "
