Wed. 8:30PM LE NOZZE DI CARLO
Gene Caprioglio, guitar, vocals; Joel Darelius , bass, vocals; Paule Diamond, soprano saxophone, vocals; Bob Goldberg, accordian, vocals
Le Nozze di Carlo is a New York-based quartet that performs ethnic and pseudo-ethnic music. The band–Gene Caprioglio – guitar & voice, Joel Darelius – bass & voice, Paule Diamond – soprano saxophone & voice, and Bob Goldberg – accordion & voice–first got together in 1993, with a handful of folk tunes, to play at a friend’s wedding in upstate New York. Since then, they have developed a repertoire ranging from traditional Italian songs like "Bella Ciao" and "Funiculi Funicula", to modern classics such as "Volare", "Quando Quando Quando", and "La Vie En Rose" to originals like the mini-opera "Vino" and the cinematic "Hunger Suite".

Wed. 10PM DIRTY MAC AND THE BUMPER CROP BOYS
(Gene Caprioglio, guitar, vocals, clarinet; Jordan Ahiyan, percussion; Octavio Salman, drums)
Dirty Mac and The Bumper Crop Boys began as a late night jug band experiment at The Black Hills Playhouse in the Black Hills of South Dakota in the summer of 2003. Band leader Sam Williams (Dirty Mac) moved to NYC in 2005, and Washtub Bassist Chris Zeig followed in 2006 where they began the reformation of the group. Fellow South Dakotans Emily Fellner (accordion, trumpet, vocals) and Doug Strich (harmonicas) came to join them soon after. The band has had over 30 members, and as many instruments, before settling in on its currant line-up. Rounding out the group are Queens natives Gene Caprioglio (electric guitar, clarinet, vocals)and Jordan Ahiyan (percussions). Octavio Salman holds it all together on the drum kit. Original country, blues, and rock and roll music that always stays true to its jug band roots.
