The Wee Amigos is started in 2011 as an Irish country music boyband, named after another Irish trio, the Three Amigos (Jimmy Buckley, Robert Mizzell, Patrick Feeney).
Simon Peters, Ben Troy and Gerald Ahern have joined forces as to form the Wee Amigos and were officially launched by the Three Amigos on their Grand Tour concert in Enniskillen on March 30, 2011.
A few days later they performed with Patrick Feeney at his Country music weekend in Claremorris (County Mayo) and in May, they supported Derek Ryan on his band.
More performances followed (Country Fest in Letterkenny, Crumlins Childrens Hospital).
Highlight was a performance on the Late Late Show, Ireland`s most watched TV show.
In 2012 the Wee Amigos will continue with Gerald Ahern(12) and Ben Troy(13).
