Diego's Umbrella
There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love Diego's Umbrella and those who soon will. Celebrated as San Francisco's Ambassadors of Gypsy Rock, these world-renowned entertainers have created an irresistible cocktail that is entirely their own.

On a planet bombarded with every possible kind of entertainment, a Diego's Umbrella show is a singular, ecstatic experience; one concert is all it takes to turn you into a believer. Night after night they effortlessly blend marching drums, harmonized shredding and gang choruses with showmanship that has all the fire and unpredictability of youth, coupled with the refinement of years of experience on the road. The group's uncanny gift for pleasing crowds, from standard clubs to huge festivals such as High Sierra and Outside Lands, has earned them a breathless and ever-expanding following across the United States and Europe, and that connection with other cultures continues to inform their aesthetic. In their music you will hear klezmer, flamenco and punk rock all blended to pop perfection.

Diego's Umbrella's fourth album, Proper Cowboy, released in July of 2012, marks a first time collaboration with San Francisco producers The Rondo Brothers (MC Lars, Foster the People). The union has resulted in a captivating new spin on the world that the band has created; the reverb-soaked guitars and gypsy fiddles have been augmented by an army of tubas, analog synths and soaring vocals in what they are calling a "futuristic Spaghetti-Western soundtrack." Proper Cowboy is Diego's Umbrella's most fully realized vision to date, the culmination of years of dedication to the craft of songwriting and to their audience. It tips its hat to the raucous dance parties the band played in their early days in Croatia, but is as quintessentially American as Rock and Roll itself, giving true meaning to album's namesake.

FOLK HOGAN, a six-piece high velocity folk punk band based in Salt Lake City, Utah, "plays with an intensity that is almost exhausting to watch,” says Kelly Cannon of City Weekly.

FOLK HOGAN brings to the stage a mix of experienced entertainers, humor, and whiskey that will keep a crowd dancing while wishing they had a backup liver. Their sets are always high energy, full of sing-a-long drinking songs and an unapologetic naughtiness that Richard Barry of Doldrums Entertainment describes as “like watching a pirate super hero group.”
