Mi Banda Favorita (My Favorite Band) Posted by on Nov 19, 2020 in Basic, music

Amo escuchar música. Escucho música todo el día, todos los días (I love listening to music. I listen to music all day, every day). I really enjoyed Laura’s recent post about music and how to talk about it in Spanish (click here if you missed it). It inspired me to try my best to write up a post in Spanish about mi banda favorita (my favorite band). See if you can understand the Spanish text before going on to the English translation.

Un concierto de Phish

Spanish Text

Hoy voy a presentar mi banda favorita – Phish. Ellos son de Vermont – un estado en el noreste de los Estados Unidos. Han sido una banda por mas de 30 años. Hay 4 personas en la banda.

Ellos tocan la guitarra, el piano, el bajo y los tambores. Todos son músicos increíbles. Ellos tocan muchos tipos de música, por ejemplo rock, funk, y jazz. Sus letras son un poco tontas pero las disfruto.

Ellos han hecho muchos álbumes pero yo preferio sus música en vivo, porque ellos improvisan mucho. Cada concierto es muy diferente. Me gusta mucho ir a sus conciertos. He visto ellos 100 veces. En serio!

Fui a muchos estados para ver sus conciertos. Las primeras 17 veces fue cuando era en colegio. Fui a esos conciertos con mis amigos y una vez fui con mi hermano.

La banda se separó por 5 años – desde 2004 hasta 2009. Ellos volvieron juntos en 2009 y me sentí muy feliz. Durante el verano, fui a muchos conciertos con mi novia, mis amigos, y mis hermanos también.

Representing Mexico at Phish Halloween in Las Vegas!

Mis conciertos favoritos fueron en Las Vegas y Miami. Es muy divertido ver un concierto de Phish en estos ciudades. Nos comprometimos en sus concierto de Año Nuevo en Miami. Fue uno de los mejores días en mi vida.

El año pasado, vimos sus conciertos en la playa en México. Para mi, fue la mejor experiencia de viajar – mi banda favorita en mi país favorita con mis amigos favoritos.

Hicimos una fiesta muy divertida en la piscina en este hotel antes del concierto. Y después del evento, viajamos por Tulum con algunos amigos. Eramos guías turísticos para nuestros amigos.

Planeamos ver muchos más conciertos este año, pero se pospusieron debido a la pandemia. Esperamos poder ver los conciertos el próximo año. ¡Todavía tenemos nuestras entradas y las guardaremos!

¿Qué hay de tí? ¿Cuál es tu banda favorita?

El pez en Mexico!

English Translation

Today I am going to present my favorite band – Phish. They are from Vermont – a state in the northeastern United States. They have been a band for over 30 years. There are 4 people in the band.

They play the guitar, piano, bass, and drums. They are all incredible musicians. They play many types of music, for example rock, funk, and jazz. Their lyrics are a bit silly but I enjoy them.

They have made many albums but I prefer their live music, because they improvise a lot. Each concert is very different. I really like going to their concerts. I have seen them 100 times. Really!

I went to many states to see their concerts. The first 17 times was when it was in school. I went to those concerts with my friends and once I went with my brother.

The band parted ways for 5 years – from 2004 to 2009. They got back together in 2009 and I was very happy. During the summer, I went to many concerts with my girlfriend, my friends, and my brothers as well.

My favorite concerts were in Las Vegas and Miami. It is a lot of fun to see a Phish concert in these cities. We got engaged at their New Years concert in Miami. It was one of the best days of my life.

Last year, we saw their concerts on the beach in Mexico. For me, it was the best travel experience – my favorite band in my favorite country with my favorite friends.

We had a really fun pool party at this hotel before the concert. And after the event, we traveled around Tulum with some friends. We were tour guides for our friends.

We planned to see many more concerts this year, but they were postponed due to the pandemic. We look forward to seeing the concerts next year. We still have our tickets and will keep them!

How about you? What is your favorite band?
