When Portland country singer Miss Lana Rebel (Last of the Juanitas/Juanita Family) left town for the dry desert sea of Tucson AZ in 2011, the members of hotshot country band The Love Lasers found themselves with some extra time to burn. With nothing more than the concept of creating the hottest guitar hotrod in Portland and beyond, they decided to draft swamp garage guitar beast Jeremy Terry (of PDX roots rock band Thee Headliners) into the lineup and started compiling a wide range of instrumental covers and originals spanning surf, country, funk, latin and beyond. Audios Amigos was born and the band has since dedicated themselves to creating furious energetic live shows designed to visually entertain, and lure even the stiffest attendees to…spasm involuntarily with dance.
Here is a recent review-
"Audios Amigos is what a spaghetti western might sound like if Ennio Morricone used a stompbox. The Portland instrumental quartet is faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to bulldoze through surf, country and rock at immortal volumes. And the term supergroup isn't completely off base, as these amigos include members of Thee Headliners, Don't, and American Friction. I saw their first show, and I must say I've never witnessed a crowd come to life like I did that night—the dance floor filled up, alcohol sales tripled, and I am almost certain half a dozen babies were conceived. Do with that what you will."
