The Story....

Hilary Cameron, Tom Hannah and Barbara Snow are three London-based musicians who had known and worked with each other for many years but never together as a trio. However, on one auspicious, balmy July evening in 2010, chance was to assemble them on what at first seemed, an unremarkable, casual engagement.

Such was the magic of the synergy, Hilary, with the warm evening air creating a frisson of movement in her flame-red hair, boldly declared: ‘This is no ordinary combination - it has a musical energy which I have never experienced before. Let's start a band.’ Tom, his steely blue eyes gazing at the murky horizon, took a sip of his whisky and soda as he pondered those last few simple words - words which were to change their lives irrevocably. His voice quivered in the darkness: ‘I feel an indescribable creative vibration and a star-bursting promise.’ Barbara, ever-thoughtful, spoke with a resolute chime in her voice: ‘Then this is the band we have been waiting all our lives to form. It will be Jazz-Pop band with a strong Latin influence.’ She became animated, her flowing silk dress reflecting the moonlight. ‘We will write songs that capture the spirit of the age and vibrate to the energy of an impeccable world and stuff.’ Tom and Hilary nodded in rapturous agreement.

And at the very moment, in a distant copse, a nightingale sang. Remarkably, it was a tune not that dissimilar to Quizas, Quizas, Quizas. Chico Chica was born.
