Orquesta GarDel Spring/Summer 2018

GarDel!!!!! Mad props to Juan Alamo, our most excellent Timbalero, for bringing in a bunch of new music for the group. We just recently went into Deep Sound Studio and recorded the rhythm section, horns, and coros for his tune “Para El Bailador”. Our bassist and the owner/main engineer at Deep Sound has been kicking some butt putting all of the pieces together. Ideally we’ll have the finished product along with more new GarDel originals coming out in the fall of 2018.

Coming up, we’ve got performances at the  Sails Music Series in Hickory, NC on June 8 as well as our monthly residency at Living Arts Collective in Durham, NC on the 4th Sunday of every month. Here’s a clip of us playing “Usted Abuso” (Avila/Figueiredo/Pinto) as arranged for Jose Feliciano.
