This Mexican supergroup tribute to Morrissey has received critical acclaim for their mariachi meets Manchester take on classics from Moz / The Smiths:
The Observer even proclaimed it to be “one of the best shows I think I’ve ever seen... nothing short of extraordinary”.
“Mexrrissey was a much truer, more passionate invocation of the Moz Spirit… even more powerful than the already-great original” - Rolling Stone
“Mexrrissey is neither a cover band nor a tribute group To call it such would be a major disservice and mistake. It mirrors the artistis DNA of the Smiths.“ - MTV Iggy
