About the bands:

Treading a path between the lyrical nuances of the Italian Cantautori and the frenetic rhythms a la Manu Chao and Gogol Bordello, explosive Gypsy Rock trio THE LATE SAINTS will get your juices flowing with infectious original songs, dreamy ballads and ludicrous pop covers, re-appropriated and “Italianized.” Front man Jacopo De Nicola's inspired kazoo lines define the distinctive band sound.

Accordion fronted, THIS WAY TO THE EGRESS cascades onto the stage in a breathtaking explosion of sound and color that’s equal parts unruly vaudeville, ebullient world beat band and three ring circus. Confetti snowstorms, tuba farts, Balinese chanting, fire wielding evangelists and puppets sweep across the stage creating a jubilant, anything-goes atmosphere powered by a relentless propulsive beat and generating enough energy to light up a small city.

There once was a young gypsy with starry eyes and a rose in her hair. She traveled aimlessly to inspire those who were worthy, drunkenly singing her songs by whichever campfire would have her. However, something was missing. Years passed, and it wasn't 'til one winter's eve in her 22nd year when she came across an angry pirate, drunkenly playing his guitar in an old saloon. The two traded songs over whiskey 'til sunrise, singing louder and laughing harder than either of them ever had. Right then and there, they knew they'd found what they were looking for, and since that day, the two have yet to leave each other's side. They now sail the Seven Seas in the company of other wandering minstrels looking to create a sound that time has long forgotten.
