Cafe Musique is gypsy, swing, tango, folk and wild classical!!

Café Musique lives up to its name with a musical pallet that includes gypsy, swing, tango, folk and their self-defined genre, "wild classical". The five members seem to eat, sleep and breathe music. They're from the central coast of California and all five come from wildly different backgrounds, but together they’ve found kindred musical spirits in one another. Having performed around the world and been on the stages of several world-class music festivals, Café Musique has made thousands of fans of their powerful, emotive and beautiful sound. They have shared the stage with Doc Severinsen, David Grisman Quintet and Los Lobos and performed and recorded with Grammy award winner Louis Ortega, musical madman Joe Craven, songwriter Jill Knight and Broadway vocalist Sarah Kleeman.
