The Mad Mariachi

A unique blend, a seamless fusion of Mexican Latin, Jazz and Western pop styles. The Mad Mariachi is a powerful and surprisingly igniting musical experience fuelled by a cross-cultural madness which defies music stereotypes. Their musical inspiration flows from the southern-most reaches of exotic Patagonia to Spain, Western Classical disciplines, Jazz, Rock, Country, Funk, Ska, Andean folk traditions and Cuban music. From the get-go, The Mad Mariachi will take you through a musical journey, though always returning to the place they adore most: Mexico.

Known as the Japanese Blues Cowboy and the Tsugaru shamisen player, they have been kicking up a storm wherever they play. George’s lightning-fast blues licks & growling harmonica enhanced by Noriko’s percussive sounds of the traditional Shamisen (Japanese banjo) has morphed into a kind of bluegrass hard country blues with a Japanese twist.

Munsterbucks, two lads from Munster, a province in the South of Ireland, and one from Australia. Tommy Donovan from Kerry (banjo and mandolin) Jack O’Leary from Cork (vocals, guitar and bodhran) and Sam De Santi (fiddle and guitar). All three of them have a rich heritage in playing traditional music both here and overseas. While keeping true to their traditional roots, they bring a unique sense of style and an irresistible groove to their tunes and songs, and they have established a strong name for themselves on the Australian folk scene.
