Umbrella Man

Nick Gaitan has a new musical project (in addition to The Octanes) called The Umbrella Man.

I caught them at a lively live performance this past Saturday night at Dean’s Credit Clothing.

The sound is a mix of swing jazz, blues, ska, and country and features Patrick Wheeler on drums, Hillary Sloan on the fiddle along with guitarists Johnny Rojas and Jeremy Peña, saxophone player Nathan Smith and accordion player Robert Rodriguez.

The sound is rich and complex and they are well worth listening to if you get a chance to see them live.
