Have you ever walked into a bar or club and found a band working the stage wearing outlandish masks, wearing ill-fitting clothing and performing high-intensity versions of one-hit wonders while jumping into bursts of synchronized dancing, engaging in R-rated banter with the audience and occasionally pouring beer on their own heads?

Probably not, but if you did, that was almost assuredly O El Amor.

And who is O El Amor?

They won't say. In fact, the group does its best to be utterly mysterious.

However, regardless of this enigmatic attitude, ‘Amor has been building a sturdy fan base — a movement that is observable as it has become commonplace to find O El Amor devotees wearing masks to its shows in tribute.
