Lord of the Strings – Gonzalo Bergara Group
May 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
At the age of 16, Gonzalo began playing the guitar in Buenos Aires professionally. When he turned 17, he was already a star in his own blues trio on National Television. At 19, he stepped on America, and that’s where the spotlights were on his side.
Just 30 years old, he has already toured worldwide with John Jorgenson Quintet. He also performed and recorded with hundreds of artists like Tim Hausser from Manhattan Transfer, Dan Hicks, The Hot Licks, Sylvie Vartan, anf Howard Alden and many more.
With tours across the globe, he also graced notable appearances at Sweet, Playboy Jazz Fest, Hot Jazz Fest, and many more.
The Gonzalo Bergara Quartet (GBQ) catches the ears of its audience with its modern variant of the 1930s Django Reinhardt-inspired sound. Its first CD, Porteña Soledad, was Editor’s Pick in Guitar Player Magazine. Vintage Guitar Magazine called it a “masterpiece.” This group is heavily influenced by Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France. Have more of their pieces by joining them on May 18, 2019, 7:00 pm- 8:30 pm.
