Desperados Nov Eng small (2)

DESPERADOS – Recreating the unforgettable sound of the ‘EAGLES’.

The Costa del Sol is alive with musical talent and none more so than “Desperados”, the ‘Supergroup’ created from the merger of Steve Nelson’s “ShackAttack” and Michael Dickenson’s “Monkey Tennis”. This band played their inaugural concert during the “Hot Summer Nights” season in the Mijas Auditorium in August 2015. To a “sell-out” audience of “Eagles” music lovers, “Desperados” faithfully replicated the unique harmonised sound made famous back in the 70s by the popular American band. Steve and Mike are joined by Carl Parry, Simon Goodwin, Kasper Jensen and Bastian van de Sant to make up this talented group. Standing ovations and amazing press reviews followed this first concert, and both those who were there and those who couldn’t go will be pleased to know that another concert in the Málaga region has been confirmed.

Desperados AO full stage
This concert will be on Saturday 7th November at 9pm in the beautiful Molina de Batán near Torremolinos . Well known as a wedding venue during summer months, the large reception hall seating 600+ is ideal for winter events especially intimate concerts, the kind best suited to “Desperados” and their semi-acoustic performance. Easy to find, being just 1 minute from the Torremolinos exit of the A7/N340, signposted to the Palacio de Congresos, and with ample parking all around the grounds, those attending the concert will have no problems finding the Molino de Batán and parking right next to it.

Big M Promotions have contracted the same professional sound and light company that everybody praised during the summer open air concerts; “A fantastic clean, full sound and spectacular lighting display” was the consensus of all attending.

Two fully-stocked bars with drinks at sensible prices (Pint beer 4€, glass of wine 3€, mixed drinks and Mojitos 5€) and a hot snacks bar that will serve all night, concert goers will enjoy the Big M Concert experience they were used to in the open-air Mijas auditorium, but now inside!

“DESPERADOS” will perform the very best of the “EAGLES”. With instantly recognisable songs like “Hotel California”, “Take it easy”, “Lying eyes”, “Desperados” (of course), “Best of my love” and many more, this will be a very special night for all “Eagles” fans.

Tickets range from 20€ to 30€ and special group rates.
