There are two kinds of people in this world: those who love Diego’s Umbrella and those who don’t know them yet. Celebrated as San Francisco’s ambassadors of Gypsy Rock, these world-renowned entertainers have created an irresistible mélange that is entirely their own.
A Diego’s Umbrella show is a singular, ecstatic experience. One concert is all it takes to becoming a believer. Night after night they effortlessly blend eastern European sounds, marching drums, beautiful harmonies and catchy hooks with a showmanship that has all the fire and unpredictability of youth, marked by a chiseled refinement of years of experience on the road.
The group’s uncanny gift for pleasing crowds, from standard clubs to huge festivals such as Outside Lands, Bottlerock and High Sierra, has earned them a zealous and ever-expanding following across the United States and Europe. Continuously touring abroad has always fed their aesthetic, and has resulted in incorporating the scales of klezmer, the strings of flamenco, and the energy of punk rock.
Their new material is some of the most exciting to date, tipping a hat to the raucous Croatian dance parties the band played in their early days while simultaneously crafting some of the best songs of their career. With a quest to fulfill and broadcast the true meaning of Gypsy Rock, Diego’s Umbrella is putting the final touches on their 5th full length album.
