Gonzalo Bergara Quartet to perform special concert this Saturday
If you love jazz and even if you don’t, you will revel in the music of the Gonzalo Bergara Quartet this Saturday, May 18.
Lord of the Strings presents this popular quartet at 7 pm in the Civic Center Council Chamber at 200 Civic Center.
Gonzalo Bergara is a virtuoso composer and lead guitarist, who mixes a cascade of arpeggios with the sounds of Paris and his native Argentina to forge his own style of progressive Gypsy Jazz.
Gonzalo began playing professionally at 16 in Buenos Aires. By 17, he was already fronting his own blues trio on national television.
Since then, Gonzalo has toured worldwide with the John Jorgenson Quintet and has performed and recorded with hundreds of artists including Tim Hausser from Manhattan Transfer, Sylvie Vartan, Dan Hicks and The Hot Licks, Howard Alden and others.
The Gonzalo Bergara Quartet explores a modern variant of the 1930s Django Reinhardt-inspired sound. The Quartet's first CD “Porteña Soledad” was Editor’s Pick in Guitar Player Magazine, and Vintage Guitar Magazine called it a "masterpiece."
Tickets are $40 and are available by calling 949-842-2227 or at the door.
