Jimmy Patton and Enrique Platas

Guitarist Jimmy Patton and percussionist Enrique Platas have combined their talents to form this award-winning duo. Their music can be described as having an international flair as they incorporate flamenco, Middle-Eastern, salsa, calypso, Brazilian, and other world rhythms into their compositions and arrangements. Jimmy and Enrique's musical collaboration has given creation to their unique, fiery world-music style that has captivated audiences from all over. Listeners will experience virtuosic guitar passages accompanied by exotic percussive rhythms, which together produce a sound that will grab your soul.

Gaby Aparicio

Gabriela Aparicio has her family roots in Uruguay. When she moved to San Diego in 2014, she began to bring her bilingual background to her writing. Gabriela likes experimenting with sound in her solo appearances, and she also loves playing with her band, La Buena Onda.

Shakedown String Band

Hailing from the laidback shores of Ocean Beach in San Diego, CA, Shakedown String Band is rapidly garnering attention with their contagious blend of Americana, Soul, and Bluegrass. A traditional interpretation of “string band” may mislead you; while the core of the sound relies heavily on vocal harmonies and soaring melodies, the momentum is powered by tight drums and percussion that leave no mistake about the groove. SSB is most known for their danceable, upbeat sound and their ability to fluctuate between a duo all the way up to a 9 piece party band with musicians spanning all generations.

The band’s debut album In the Key of OB was nominated for “Best Americana Album” at the 2019 San Diego Music Awards. They have recently shared the stage with nationally touring acts Hot Buttered Rum, Dead Winter Carpenters, and Kitchen Dwellers. Highlights from their first regional tour include Live at Lakeview, Lost Sierra Hoedown, and winning Battle of the Bands at Huck Finn Jubilee.
