Früher nannten sie sich Pachucos y la Princesa und vor allem in England gab es
zu oft Verständigungsprobleme und sie ändeten ihren Namen in Jenny and the Mexicats
Jenny began playing the trumpet aged 7 and began singing at 15, alongside teaching herself to play the guitar. Playing both in Jazz and Classical bands as well as orchestras most of her life, she had an ear and a love for music. A fusion of nationalities and personalities, the band's story is a little unusual and more of an accidental occurrence rather than a planned adventure. Jenny & The Mexicats began life as Pachucos y la Princesa in June 2008, when Jenny was invited to Spain by a Double Bass player (Icho) she'd met two years previously whilst touring in Madrid. In search of something new, Jenny fell right into place in Spain, decided she wanted to call it home and set about starting a band. Icho contacted the best guitar player he knew - Pantera, a flamenco guitarist, whom Icho had known all his life and shared previous bands with, including a a Rockabilly band in Spain.

“At that age you’re like, ‘I want to see the world. I want to do things,’” Ball says. In 2008, she packed her bags, moved to Spain and launched a band without speaking any Spanish.

mexikanischen Joke zum Mauerbau gefragt, die gerade doch häufigaus gegebenen Anlass bei
Mexikanern erzählt werden.
Der Musiker aus Mexiko, der keine Problem mit der Einreise in
die USA hätte, meinte, dass sich die Mexikaner auf jeden Fall für den Mauerbau die
Bauherren / Planer / Bauarbeiter der Baustelle des "Berliner Flughafens (BER) herbeiwünschen würden....
