Los Capitan0s (18:05 – 19:05)

Los Capitanes are a two/three-piece acoustic band specialising in mash-ups and covers with a Latin twist, their unique and high-energy covers are sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face! Formed in 2010, Los Capitanes (Los Caps to friends) have been building up a reputation in their native North East England ever since as an extremely entertaining and accomplished group with the ability to cater for intimate cafe gigs just as well as large festivals and weddings.

What started as a one-gig band with a three-song repertoire has now developed into a group covering an eclectic mix of genres, from Funk and Pop to Latin Jazz, ensuring that there is a little bit of something for everyone.

Friday afternoon entertainment comes courtesy of the Sage Silver Programme.
