Friday Night Live at Dunas Douradas Beach club with Andy Knox

Dunas Douradas Beach Club
Friday Night Live, August 22nd with Andy Knox .

"An Absolutely shining talent..." - Ace from 'The Damo & Ace Show / Skunk Anansie, Juice FM'

Having been playing and gigging since the age of 11, the word 'entertaining' comes naturally to Andy Knox. This 20 year old Scot was driven on by a musical and creative family as well as by artists such as REM, Squeeze, Genesis and the ‘Brit-Pop’ era of the 90s. Armed with his acoustic guitar & a unique, husky voice, Knox has to date (May 2008) released a download single (‘Feel Me’ – Sept 2007; available from iTunes), supported Sandi Thom, Jack McManus & Ocean Colour Scene and had his single used as the backing track to Jack Wills winter collection advert. Songs of love, anger, reason and the future may initially put this youngster into the clichéd bracket of a "depressed" singer/songwriter, but he is much more than that....

"Olè señores thursday night is Mexican Night"

This week ,here at DDBC the featured Buffet night will be dedicated to the Mexican flavours.

Followed by live music and entertainment, you will be able to try the tradicional spicy flavours from the Mexican cuisine, gently prepared by our chefs, and sip the best Margaritas at our "Margarita Madness Bar".
The main pleasure that mercado food gives, naturally, is in the eating. Nonetheless, Mexican gastronomy has another angle that is almost as much fun: That of knowing its historical roots.

"...In 1519, when the first Spanish conquistadors entered the Aztec capital Tenochtitlan, where today Mexico City stands, they found the Aztec emperor Montezuma excessively fond of a drink concocted from vanilla and chocolate, and sweetened with honey. This was a native Mexican-Indian dish -- probably invented by the Maya -- later to find worldwide acceptance. Vanilla is a substance derived from the fruit-pod of a certain species of Mexican orchid, and chocolate comes from the fruit of the Mexican cacao tree. The conquistadors were further impressed by the variety of foods enriching Aztec diets.

Quesadillas are one of the mainstays of Mexico's street-side stands, and are considered quintessential Mexican. It turns out that they, like Mexicans themselves, are hybrid creations, half indigenous and half Spanish. The corn tortilla on which quesadillas are based is native American; the cheese, as well as the pork, and/or beef that may accompany the cheese, is Spanish; of the garnish, the hot-sauce made with chili pepper is indigenous, but the shredded lettuce is Spanish..."
