Diego's Umbrella
Diego's Umbrella
San Francisco’s ambassadors of gypsy rock, Diego’s Umbrella captures California’s cultural multiplicity with enthusiasm, humor and decadence. These urban mariachis have performed more than 1,000 live shows at clubs and festivals across the U.S. and Europe. The band’s lively, unforgettable, heavy-hitting stage show has visually and aurally captivated diverse audiences from all walks of life. Possessing a pop sensibility and punk rock energy somewhere between Gogol Bordello and Muse, Diego’s Umbrella takes explosive melodies, Eastern European grit, Latin flair and anthemic delivery to a wholly unique place.

Beso Negro

Beso Negro has an all-star lineup of internationally experienced musicians who have brought drive and passion to Gypsy Jazz. Taking the hint dropped by the great folk punk bands The Pogues, Gogol Bordello and Flogging Molly, Beso Negro has transformed a genre into a vibrant new beast. Darker, faster, more danceable, more blues, more Gypsy, Beso Negro's indelible fingerprint brings Jazz Manouche to a new generation and to the 21st century.

Javier Jimenez of Madrid adroitly conjures the ghost of Django with his phenomenal guitar playing. Adam Roach's vocals are singular, soulful and penetrating. Steve Gardner's fiddle playing is fluid and dark. Cheyenne's Bass drives the beat hard. One night with Beso Negro and you will understand what is means to get the "Black Kiss".

By the way, they swing so you should swing dance.
