3-in-1: Gaucho + Nathan & Jessie + Shine Delphi: Gypsy Swing and Hot Jazz at The Starry Plough Pub in Berkeley!

Gaucho is a masterful Bay Area band that combines the influence of gypsy jazz of 1930’s Europe with the rhythmic drive and collective improvisation of New Orleans swing music, gutbucket blues and elements of ragtime. Their sound, a uniquely American concoction, blends instrumental acuity and lighthearted humor that keep their audience coming back for more. As founder, guitarist, and main composer Dave Ricketts says, the band is “in love with the music of Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller and Jimmie Rodgers, as well as the stories, the life styles and the footsteps of hundreds of other great jazz, blues, country and rock musicians that created the sound of American Music from roughly 1900-1950’s”

Fresh off their Southwest and East Coast tour, Nathan & Jessie return to the Bay to perform a night of gypsy-blues-swingin-folk music. Together, these two make for an unforgettable performance! The duo has traveled all over the world sharing their music on streets and stages with their unique sound. A fusion of jazzy folk and blues on resonator guitars and accordion, along with interesting interplay between male and female vocals, make their performances unlike any other.

Shine Delphi of New Orleans mixes elements of traditional jazz, country blues picking, and folk storytelling. He has performed with the likes of The Carolina Chocolate Drops and Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band.
