San Francisco's ambassadors of gypsy rock, Diego's Umbrella captures California's cultural multiplicity with enthusiasm, humor and decadence. These urban, gringo mariachis have performed more than 1,000 live shows 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. Influenced heavily by flamenco, klezmer, Eastern European and Latin sounds Diego's Umbrella has introduced the world to a new kind of popular music: Gypsy Rock. They possess a pop sensibility and punk rock energy with sounds reminiscent to that of Gogol Bordello, Devotchka and Muse.
While the origins of Diego's Umbrella date back to the 2001, with the collaboration of founding members Vaughn Lindstrom (acoustic guitar, vocals) and Tyson Maulhardt (electric guitar), they officially hit the scene in 2005 with the release of their first full-length album Kung Fu Palace. Violinist Jason Kleinberg and bassist Kevin Blair came on board early in the project, and the 6-some was rounded out by Ben Leon (vocals, guitar) and Jake Wood (drums) in early 2009. The Group has released 3 albums including Viva la Juerga '07, Double Panther '09, and a host of independent recordings. They have been featured in major motion pictures, Network Television, and numerous documentaries, in addition to countless worldwide radio and print. Currently, they are in the studio working on a new EP to be released later this summer. Viva la Juerga!!!
We are a little brass band, with many a background and influence. Our horns and accessories were forged out of earthly materials long before our time...but that is where the beauty lies. Passion Bucket, borne of Yesterday's Chonies, strives to bring only the best in acoustic music to the streets of Fresno, CA...mixing Sousa with Minaj, punk rock with whatever else you imagine....come and join our bike brigade, or meet us on the streets...we'll see you around.
The Low Rollers
The Low Rollers are a fuzzed out folk rock garage band power trio!
Brian Kenney Fresno
"He is the only performer that has ever been told they are too entertaining for Burning Man and asked to stop because the audience was actually paying attention to him and expressing boisterous mellow-harshing enthusiasm. His songs are filled to the brim with humor and biting social commentary, following the Brian Kenney Fresno initiation ritual, the eucharist of raisins." -Sarah Lockhart
