Daisy Castro with Quinn Bachand, Max O’Rourke and Greg Loughman
Daisy Castro is an outstanding interpreter of early European Jazz of the 1930’s and 40’s (in the style of the Quintette du Hot Club de France). She has emerged as a revitalizing force for the genre, stunning first-time audience members and continuing to enthrall even those that have seen her perform many times before. Her dynamic playing channels some of the early greats, while adding a modern edge to the Jazz Manouche (the French name for “Gypsy Jazz”) tradition.
Daisy has been an active member of the Gypsy Jazz community both in the United States and in Europe since she was 14 years old. She has played on stages on both continents with all of the masters. Now, at the ripe old age of 20, and with three recordings of this style under her belt, she has earned the respect of said masters and their knowledgeable audiences, which is no small feat in this heavily male dominated genre.
Daisy will appear onstage with Quinn Bachand, on lead guitar Max O’Rourke on rhythm guitar and bassist Greg Loughman. Quinn come from Canada’s West Coast where he performs frequently with his sister Qristina. He has been nominated a total of 16 times for prominent Canadian awards. Max O’Rourke and Greg Loughman, who will be joining Daisy on this tour, are from the popular Gypsy Jazz group Rhythm Future Quartet.
