Siskiyou Arts Council’s prensentation of “Eco Art” and street music was big hit with both locals and visitors. A lot of bicycle enthusiasts were in town for the Summit Century ride which was billed as the “hardest, friendliest 100 miler”. Local bands entertained during the day with Sara Knox and Beso Negro playing after dark. Beso Negro has an all-star lineup of internationally experienced musicians who have brought drive and passion to Gypsy Swing. The love for tradition has collided with a modern sensibility and has transformed the genre into a vibrant new beast. Darker, faster, more danceable, more blues, more Gypsy, Beso Negro’s indelible fingerprint brings Jazz Manouche to a new generation and to the 21st century. They definitely had the crowd dancing and would have played all night if city ordinances would let them!
Mike’s mix was excellent – and he’s very easy to work with. We would be delighted tor work with him again.
