On Tuesday 21st November 2023, a huge charity single launch took place at Liverpool’s iconic Cavern Club. Livin’ La Vida Liverpool is the hilarious creation of La Vida Liverpool magazine owner Justin Hopper and high energy Latin party band, Los Amigos — with the music video expertly filmed by Eliot Murphy.

The charity single launch night was in aid of the legendary Mr Old Hall Street and his great work helping the Liverpool homeless and was hosted in memory of Busker Pete, who sadly passed away recently. Pete starred in the Livin La Vida Liverpool music video just a couple of months before he passed and the night was a tribute to Pete, whilst raising money for the vital work of his close friend, Mr Old Hall Street.

On the night, kindly hosted for free by The Cavern Club, there was a premiere screening of the music video, a live set from Los Amigos themselves, a powerful poem from Bobby Parry, hilarious comedy from Gary Skyner, talks from all involved in the project with special guest speakers, a huge charity raffle and more. The night was lots of fun, whilst raising money for the homeless prior to the winter.

Thanks to the efforts of La Vida Liverpool, Los Amigos and everyone involved in the project, the night raised over £1,500 for Mr. Old Hall Street and the Liverpool homeless — a triumph for community spirit and the good people of Liverpool. What started out as a fun passion project turned into a top single launch night for a fantastic cause.

La Vida Liverpool owner Justin Hopper said: “Originally, the song was just a fun collaboration between La Vida Liverpool and Los Amigos, who are the best Latin party band around, and filmed by the incredible talented Eliot Murphy. Busker Pete starred in the music video but he sadly passed a couple of months after filming — so that’s when we thought about doing something in his memory for the homeless.” 

He continued: “Mr. Old Hall Street supplied Pete with his colourful outfits and was good friends with him so it was very fitting to make this a charity single launch for them both. The night was incredible and it was a great effort all round — with over 100 people in The Cavern Club on a Tuesday night. Huge thanks to The Cavern Club, everyone who performed, attended, donated raffle prizes and supported the project.”

Following the premiere of the music video, Los Amigos graced us with one of their fabulous high energy live performances that have endeared them to audiences far and wide. Their unique style of a frontman from Kuwait, two Italians and a lad from Birkenhead fusing Latino and English classics with their own twist, they certainly know how to put on a show!

Brian Phillips, aka Mr. Old Hall Street, said: “On behalf of all my homeless brothers and sisters, I’d like to thank everyone for putting this night together. As everyone knows, I was once homeless but now I dedicate my life to helping the homeless of our city. Unfortunately, the situation is getting worse and there are more deaths happening. It will be even worse this winter so this fundraiser has come at the right time.”

Meanwhile, Peter Mickle’s family stated: “We just wanted to say how much we all enjoyed last night. Seeing Peter in the video was great and Gary Skyner was hilarious. We can’t thank you all enough for putting on a great night in our Peter’s memory. It’s amazing what you all do for the homeless. You’re all heroes!”
