Tonight at 8 pm! Gonzalo Bergara Quartet at the Arcata Playhouse, with opening set by La Musique Diabolique! We hope you'll join us!
Tuesday, May 17 - 8PM
Gonzalo Bergara Quartet
The all-acoustic Gonzalo Bergara Quartet plays a modern variant of 1930’s Django Reinhardt-inspired gypsy jazz.
Co...mposer and lead guitarist Gonzalo Bergara mixes a cascade of arpeggios with the sounds of Paris and his native Argentina.
His first CD, Porteña Soledad, was Editor’s Pick in Guitar Player Magazine, and Vintage Guitar Magazine called it a "masterpiece."
The Gonzalo Bergara Quartet consists of Gonzalo Bergara on lead guitar, Jeffrey Radaich on rhythm guitar, Leah Zeger on violin,
and Brian Netzley on upright bass.
The music is heavily influenced by Django Reinhardt and the Hot Club of France, as well as the traditional jazz and music of Bergara's
true home, Buenos Aires. "Gonzalo Bergara’s music exists in a way that very little music does. He has lavished such care on every phrase,
built each arrangement with such lapidary precision and pared away anything extraneous, the music becomes sculpture. It has weight,
density, gravity. This is serious... and deeply moving.
Tickets: $15/General - $13/Members/Students/Seniors
This Tuesday (5/17), we are very excited to be opening for the Gonzalo Bergara Quartet at the Arcata Playhouse! They are a phenomenally talented group who are nice enough to come through Arcata at least once a year!
We know it's a Tuesday night, but we seriously encourage anyone who can make it to come out. This is the last show we will be performing as a full quintet, and we can't think of a better last show than one where we share the stage with one of the best modern gyspy guitarists in the world! Tickets are $15/$13 for students. Hope to see you there!
Fun fact: this band we call La Musique Diabolique has been together for over four years, which is considerably longer than anyone involved expected it to run for.
But all great things come to an end eventually. We have had a ton of fun performing around Humboldt for the last few years, but it's just about time for us to call it a day. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us during this little venture. None of it would have been nearly as much fun without all of t...he love and support we have received.
Here is the list of our last few shows, we hope you can make it to one!
Tonight, 5/13, Arts Arcata at Brio from 6-9 pm

Happy Valentines Day everyone! We thought you might enjoy a love song from our forthcoming album. So here is our rendition of Bobby Caldwell's 1978 hit "What You Won't Do For Love," featuring our friend Russ Thallheimer on Tenor Sax!
We've been hanging out in the recording studio an awful lot lately, and thought it was high time we shared a little piece of what we've been working on. Here is a little journey through time back to 2004, when Britney Spears reigned supreme on the pop charts with "Toxic." Enjoy!
