A presumed crime boss has hired a well-known Colombian band to sing for his dog, the musicians told newspaper El Tiempo Thursday.
Members of the group “Los Cantores de Chipuco” were contracted to play a “show” for the Jack Russel Terrier belonging to what they assumed was a “duro,” or crime boss. The artists played “El perro de Vitor (The dog of Vitor)” repeatedly for the animal until dawn.
“Hysterical the women! Hysterical the dogs!” the artists had to yell over and over again during the private show to appease the dog who would begin to bark any time the group stopped singing.
“It was in [the Antioquian town of] Llano Grande. We don’t know who the boss was, but we arrived to a party with a lot of people and other artists. We sang at 11 in the night and the man asked us to stay and do another show. We finished at midnight. After two other groups, they asked us to play again. It was 6 in the morning [when we finished] and there were four drunk people and a dog in the middle,” said the Colombian group.
The dog would only remain quiet if he was serenaded with his preferred song: “It screws me all day / because I take [the dog] out to crap, ay ay / what a tiresome old lady… The neighbor glares at me / because I take the dog out.”
Los Cantores de Chipuco explained that there have been various occasions in their career when they found themselves in awkward situations. “In these cases, it’s best not to look at any side, let alone make comments,” said the musical trio who is favored by many. The group will travel all the way to Australia to play for their fans and look to not only go to the United States but conquer South America as well.
